Being my first time at SXSW, I’m told that the attendance has increased 60% from last year. I’m not surprised as there is thousands of web professionals, media creators, and like-minded individuals crawling the halls (That was the nicest way of saying “Geek Convention”). Many of the folks here I recognize from the bay area, it’s amazing how a segment of Palo Alto and South Park SF was picked up and transplanted here in Austin Texas.
Below are some of the pictures I took from Day 1, I don’t have a great camera (just a $350 Canon IS700) but I do my best!
I noticed that Seagate has the highest presence here as a sponsor of the event. I’m not surprised, as their one of our biggest clients, and really understand and get the new data creators.
