The DC Tech Community was at SXSW in force

It seems like this year the DC tech community was at South by Southwest (SXSW) in force.

As I mentioned before, when I got into town on Saturday after just walking the conference halls for 5 minutes, I ran into sooooo many DC people.

Other folks were noticing the massive Washington DC presence.   I’d meet people and mention that I was from DC.  They’d say “DANG, I’ve run into a ton of DC people here.”

The lyric from the Bob Dylan song “Ballad of a Thin Man” is so appropriate.

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

Something is happening here in Washington DC.

  1. It was a great year for DC. And we owe a lot of that to your organizing so much here and getting the word out. Thanks, Justin!

    It was great hanging out with you there, as well 🙂

  2. Great seeing you at the Mashable event, Justin! I’m definitely looking forward to attending SXSW next year, its gonna be a blast.

  3. I missed it, but it did seem like everyone was in Austin instead of here. If we had such representation there this year, I can only imagine that good things are on tap for the local tech scene 🙂
