South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive in Austin each March showcases five days of compelling panel sessions led by the brightest minds in emerging technologies, hands-on instructional Workshops, one-on-one Mentor opportunities with industry leaders and a variety of exciting networking opportunities.
Self-proclaimed but true, SXSW Interactive is a true incubator of cutting-edge technologies and creativity – it’s the place to preview the technology of tomorrow today. We attended this year and had the opportunity to attend a number of panels relevant to our industry.
One of the stand-out panels that we attended was “Is Your Fridge Judging You? Tales from the IoT.” The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic, will be a key driver of consumer electronics innovations and has enormous implications across every sector of our economy. We’re on the cusp of turning everything “smart” — from our homes to our street corners — but how do we build a market that supports innovation while still protects your right to privacy? This panel discussed challenges and opportunities of these technologies and what policymakers need to know.

It was a pleasure meeting all of our new connections; we look forward to seeing you again next year at SXSW. If you’re still in Austin, our CEO Aaron Hughes will be attending an ARIN on the Road event tomorrow (3/22). Be sure to say hello if you’re there!
