What I completely beloved concerning the SXSW is this environment of “happiness” and serendipity that floats round, and that makes everybody keen to meet new folks and have enjoyable. I do not forget that I couldn’t perceive the distinction between once I was having enjoyable and once I was doing enterprise PR. It was simply me going across the corridors and assembly folks, consuming horrible White Claw, attempting new VR experiences, then partying through the night… and even assembly Paris Hilton!
Final 12 months was so excellent that I’m positive that this 12 months can’t attain the identical degree. However whoever has gone to SXSW has at all times good tales to inform, so I’m positive that this 12 months I’ll reside unbelievable adventures once more. And naturally, I’ll let you realize all of them. And… even higher… why don’t you reside them along with me?
