A big howdy from Austin, Texas and SXSW 2014. And, WOW. Just, WOW. With 78,000+ confirmed registrants and 285,000+ folks rumored to have come into Austin for South by Southwest 2014, it’s easy to see how South By (its nickname) has become the quintessential place to be for rockers, musicians, artists, actors, techies, coders, lap-top wizards, educators, leaders, financiers, filmmakers, and fans—to name but a few invested parties.
