The Rawporter team will once again descend on Austin for SXSW Interactive. Last year was our launch party, where almost 1,000 enthusiastic beta testers joined us for an awesome night. Rumor has it that even Kevin was spotted dancing, though all photographic evidence was destroyed immediately upon our return to Charlotte.
This year will be a little more low key, but we’d still love to meet any of Rawporters who happen to be in Austin. Here are some highlights of what we’ll be up to:
#bGiv The National Hour of Giving at SXSW 2013
We’ve partnered with the U-ee Foundation to help three local Austin families get back on their feet. We’ll take part in several round table discussions on how tech companies can take a more active approach in helping those in need. Plus we’ll have some fun with indoor skydiving provided by iFly Austin and a closing BBQ. We’ll be donating all the proceeds from photo or video sales to U-ee. To participate, upload your photos or videos to Rawporter (be sure to include #bGiv in the description) or visit sxswi.com to buy photos or videos.
There are tons of great sessions this year, but here are three we’ll definitely be attending:
We’ll also be sharing a booth in the Startup Village with the team from Nibletz.com and the folks at TechHustlers have been nice enough to let us crash their Recharge Lounge at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown.
So, don’t be shy! Come out and see us if you’re in Austin!
