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.
