It’s that time of year again…SXSW! While some folks have already touched down in Austin, many others (including myself) will be on our way shortly to the annual gathering of bright minds at SXSW Interactive, which is celebrating its 21st year.
Last year, we had the pleasure of bringing the Captains from Discovery’s Deadliest Catch to Texas, and this year Animal Planet is returning in #meow fashion and Science Channel is in the mix with some heavy science hitters. And in a few panels featuring our colleagues, a meet up and you can consider your SXSW schedule set!
Check out the lineup below and hope to see many of you there…
