SXSW 2012

I didn’t actually go to SXSW this year, but I co-hosted a few happy hours with one of my Dell colleges, Barton George. I’ve been “moonlighting” to work with the Web|Tech group here at Dell (which Barton is part of), which is focused on developers, ISVs, and web companies. From two folks in a garage to the Facebook’s & Zynga’s of the world. Overall, it was great, as always, to catch-up with the crowd that comes to Austin.

Barton captured several, quick video interviews, doing some actual content creation while I just had drinks with friends ;>

The first night:

The second night:

The third night:

It was great catching up and talking with folks about what I’ve been up to at Dell from my day job in corporate strategy for software to side-projects like Web|Tech and the internal incubation program I help run.

We’ll see you next year!

Back in 2011 I moderated a panel at SXSW going over cloud. It has Salesforce’s Peter Coffee and (at the time) VMware’s Javier Soltero. Fun as always.

See the original post of this from the time over on my old RedMonk blog.

Kim’s big SXSW 2010 show recommendations list

While we can’t go this year, my wife Kim and I usually find all sorts of exciting music at SXSW each year.

The secret is, she’s the one who finds all the good stuff – I’m just lucky enough to tag along.

Several people have asked for her SXSW 2010 recommendations, so here
they are in a giant block of text:

finish it. -Kim)

Back at SXSW 2009, Neelan Choksi was kind enough to invite me to be on a panel on open source. Mark Brewer and Sara Dornsife were also on the panel. Good times.

Here’s the original, brief notes on it at my old RedMonk blog.
