In the Sea of Party People SXSW 2012
Every 50 feet or 5 minutes which ever comes first there is a musician/ band at the SXSW Festival. From what I understand the grass plays music. Walking down Congress or the famous 6th Street is intimidating with what I call the Sea of Party People. It’s like spring break but cooler with the huge variety of music, films and technology/ classes. I really loved and enjoyed the music but swimming through the crowd for hours is a bit much.
Did I mention Parking- I had to take out a 2nd mortgage – lol. Not really but it was on average $30 to park for the day. So if I wasnt working the madness I would just ride the bike around.
The big theme this year for the technology was Twitter this and Twitter that. Tweet to get savings, sync your credit card with your twitter account and get free music tickets, Tweet this ridiculous photo of yourself and get this. So in a crowd of people everyone is tweeting showing off that they are there and maybe not really enjoying being there…. except for the free drinks!
There was also this new technology of having all your credit cards, membership cards, discounts, coupons all in one application on your phone. Then you need to purchase something you wave your phone and then the purchase is made. Which actually makes me nervous. Next thing you know you will have a code/signal inserted in your body. No need for a cell phone you just tap your wrist to make a phone call. Scary! So that’s on next years agenda. Wont do it.
