SXSW in Living Color

SXSW 2010

Tamika, my partner gave an introduction to SXSW in her blogpost yesterday to catch up those, like herself, who were in her words “clueless to the brilliance” of the annual Austin conference that connects, technology, film, and music.

I am continuing the SXSW conversation today bringing you a round-up of diverse people and happenings that took place last weekend. This also helps me feel like I was there. I have known about the conference for a year now. And, I commit to make it in person, maybe next year. But, in the meantime thanks for all those that have allowed me to live vicariously through ustream, video, audio and  blogposts.

Black Blogging Rock Stars and Adria Richards
Thanks Adria Richards of But You’re A Girl for you panel review of the Black Blogging Rock Stars and a bit about your panel on Sci-Fi and Tech’s similarities
 
Black in Tech Meetup
I was able to experience this lively discussion which included a Kanye moment as described by James Andrews’ blogpost.
 
Latinos in Tech Meetup
Inspired by Blacks in Tech, Latinos in Tech decided they would host their own event. See the pics.
 
Baratunde Thurston Tells Us How to be Black
And the ever Informing and Entertaining Baratunde Thurston grabs the SXSW audience according to Venture Beat.
 
Hopefully, I’ll be there next year standing next to these thought leaders reminding these influential new media leaders of their power to connect our buying power with image power on the big screen, small screen, computer screen and everything in between
