Now in its 27th year “South by Southwest ‘ SXSW interactive/film/music festival indeed has something for everyone. Thousands from around the world attend the annual event in Austin, Texas each year. Still, the debate in the news media raged on to whether “Southby” – the launching pad for Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare – was still cool. One thing for sure baby boomers , including yours truly, were EVERYWHERE.
The SXSW Interactive speakers menu was dominated by boomers: Angel funder/philosopher Guy Kawasaki, Segway inventor Dean Kamen, astrophysist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Raleigh, North Carolina Mayor Nancy McFarlane and BoomerWiz Blogger Patricia Patton.
I managed to catch a few “selfies” with the famous and not so famous.
Baby boomers were everywhere.
