Japan at SXSW 2011

This year Hugh Forest the executive director of SXSW Interactive opened the first session March 11th with the words “Solidarity for Japan”. During the recent earthquake catastrophe everything failed except for the Internet. Aki Kodama was at the airport of Tokyo blocked for 24 hours by the tsunami earthquake. His group of Augmented Reality Tonchidot Corporation. made it to Austin to do their work and spread their word.

SXSW 2010

You don’t have to Keep Austin Weird. Austin will stay so anyway.

Keep yourself straight if you manage to visit Austin, if you want to say something about weirdness. Or just tie your dirty red bandanna on the first day of South By Southwest, and move right along.

Thirteen thousand people, only five percent of them over fifty: this is the statistic of SXSW Interactive 2010. The panel I attended on “Why Do We Still Blog” was made of excuses, very plausible and honest: blogging is dead, long live Twitter. Still, every day, many new blogs are born. More

Zavrsen je interaktivni festival SXSW, danas pocinje muzicki, 500 koncerata za 4 dana: filmovi su i dalje svuda po gradu. Vreme je olujno, kisovito i sparno. Neobicno , nekako romanticno…narocito nocu kad svetlosti i muzika probijaju kroz kisu, gromove…

Sinoc nam je Bruce Sterling u ritualnom zavrsnom govoru (rant) recitovao Ceslava Milosa i predskazao kraj bloga u ime necega veceg znacajnijeg osmisljenijeg sa politicke i estetske tacke gledista. Tako govore futuristi ali ja znam da je predskazivanje buducnosti zapravo citanje sadasnjosti. Sta je to sto mi vec sada radimo , sto nema jos ime?Svi paneli mogu se naci na sajtu SXSW…evo nekih mojih belezaka iz prethodnih dana More

10 mart, update

Juce kod registracije, imala sam special treatment, don’t ask me why, dobila sam platinum karticu, sto znaci free booze i ulazak na sve events ali kako sam bila koncentrisana na instant fotku da ne izgledam kao serial killer nisam primetila da sam izgubila u proceduri prezime i zemlju porekla. Naime, kompjuter nema sh i ch, te sam sada samo Jasmina, a nema ni opciju Srbija, vec samo Yugoslavia, te sam Platinum Jasmina from Yugoslavia. Tako se i osecam.Na panelu video blogging can change the world troje mladih video blogera su uglavnom pricali tehnicke stvari, kako se to radi, kako je to jednostavno i vazno. Jer recimo iz Indije koja cini 1/4 svetskog stanovnistva nema slika kako ljudi zive. Verdi Michael i Hadson su postavili sajt na kome iz Indije pristizu video snimci jednom nedeljno…i zanimljivo je da ne zele interaktivnost komentara, polemiku…vec samo povezanost. Jeste li culi za Godwinov zakon? Zakon u geek jeziku. To je zakon po kome na kraju svake rasprave na netu , neko ce nekoga nazvati fasistom, rasistom itd. More
