087: Things We Learned from SXSW

SXSW 2018 Logo SquareIn the first of 2 episodes between Chief Whaler George and Account Strategist Whaler Olivia, we talk about (taco-bout?) our recent conference adventures, beginning with Olivia’s time at SXSW 2018. There were discussions on digital sanctuary, empathy, VR, blockchain, and — of course — tacos.

Panels and talks referenced include insights into race and digital sanctuary (especially as it plays out against the 2020 Census), how a new, open-source Web may rely on a nonprofit mindset of interdependency to flourish, and how the novelty of VR has worn off — but why that may be a perfect time to start taking it seriously.

Listen in here, and check out more high points of SXSW Interactive (including audio files from some of the talks).
