South by Southwest 2011 is fast approaching and an estimated 36,000 visitors will soon descend on Austin for the SXSW interactive, music and film conferences. During SXSW, the movers and shakers in their respective industries come to Austin to learn about new industry trends, discover new ideas and talent, and network with people from all around the world.
Speaking of networking, Peter Tsai, the photographer of Austin, Texas: A Photographic Portrait will be at SXSWi this year! If you are attending SXSWi 2011, make sure to follow him on Twitter at @AustinPhotoBook or at his personal account at @supertsai.
Give him a shout! If you do meet up with him, he’ll give you one of his awesome MOO business cards, which happen to feature one of 25 photos from Austin, Texas: A Photographic Portrait. If you want to learn more about MOO cards, you can find them on Twitter at @overheardatmoo
Don’t have a badge for SXSW this year? No worries – there’s many ways to participate in the SXSW even without a badge. Websites like Republic of Austin and SXSW Free Noms will show you where to get your party on for free! Why are there so many free parties in Austin during SXSW? I’m not sure, but it’s just one more reason why Austin is an awesome place to live.
