sxsw interactive

One of my best friends (JP, whom I met last summer at UT) had an internship last year at South by Southwest (SXSW). I guess you could say his enthusiasm for the company rubbed off on me. And his excessive use of acronyms. For maybe about half a year I have talked to friends about how badly I wanted to intern at SXSW Interactive. Three weeks ago today I finally gave South by a ring.

After meeting the first two guys I would work with (Hugh and Jason), I met Shawn about a week and a half later. He had been out on his honeymoon, having just recently married. During the "interview" — in quotes because such a word is far too formal for the laid back atmosphere of SXSW — I was told I had the job.

So now I work for SXSW! If you have any interest whatsoever in what I do check out our SXSW Tech Report. It is updated fairly frequently. Now with the help of myself. As of right now, my job is to update Tech Thought, Blog Nation, Web Bizaar, and Road Trips when I am at work and whenever I can.

I am thinking about adding an archive on this site of whatever links or quotes I have provided for the Tech Report. But we'll see if that actually happens. If you happened to wonder what I meant in my last post about my car "providing me a lot of opportunities," well, this is it.

I just happened to stumble across your blog. I'm really interested in doing an internship for sxsw, and I was wondering if you could give me any advice. I'm not even sure where to begin, how long the internships last, when they're offered, and all that kinda stuff. Anything you could tell me would be great.
