Austin’s weather was chilly today, but dry…a welcome break from yesterday’s downpours. No movies for me today. Instead, I attended some Interactive sessions and wandered around the Trade Show (Austin Convention Center), SxSW Gaming (Palmer Events Center) and SxSW Create (Long Center Terrace).
Mindy Kaling interview with Mare Claire editor Anne Fulenwider. The Mindy Project cast members Adam Pally and Ike Barinholtz were hilarious.
Brandon Stanton from Humans of New York fame. He’s young! His favorite NYC spot for taking photos for his blog is in Central Park.
Interview with Shaquille O’Neal about wearable technology. Frequent mentions of FitBit made me wonder if he was doing an endorsement. I later learned that he was.
3-D printers and drones were all the craze at SxSW Create, which seemed like a smaller, almost-normal version of a Maker Faire.
Meanwhile over at SxSW Gaming: Paperdude VR looks like quite a workout.
Mario and friends at the Mario Kart track. Very long wait to drive go-karts around the track and have your race recorded as a video game on Youtube.
Saw my first Bitcoin ATM.
Saw my first dresses made of Subway wrappers.
