SXSW 2012 Events

It’s SXSW time again here in Austin TX. SXSW is where an insane amount of creative people from all over the world, cram into our little city for a week of sensory overload. It’s kind of like Mardi Gras for artists, minus the beads and hand grenades. Some of the best events around town are the “unofficial” events, where badges and wrist bands are not required. We are taking part in both official and unofficial happenings with some great people. This is a great time to meet us in person, see how our products work, and or buy me a beer or two (I am particularly fond of Cubano style Michelada’s ;) ) to get me to spill the beans on our upcoming product releases. Here’s the rundown of what we have in store.

Monday, March 12th 7:30-9pm at the ND
