(B) This year, I did not notice a big crowd from Silicon Valley going to SXSW in Austin. SXSW is mostly about music, film, and entertainment. But with the evolution of computing technology becoming more consumer-oriented over the last 15 years, SXSW is probably a good place to eventually spot some market trends. Twitter, in its early days, got a significant boost from SXSW.
SXSW has a start-up Accelerator forum during the conference where new start-ups could compete into one of the following categories:
Enterprise and Smart Data Technologies
Entertainment and Content Technologies
Digital Health and Life Sciences Technologies
Innovative World Technologies
