It’s a conference like few others – big, bold and full of talented individuals all interested in similar topics.
Today was my first day at SxSW Interactive here in Austin, TX.
It marked an important point in my learning curve around the use of social media as a tool for community building. Chris, as always, shared some golden nuggets that stuck with me as I developed my own approach to getting involved in the online social recruiting niche.
It’s amazing how much can change in a year! In fact, between personal and professional changes, I would be hard pressed to even list them all out.
So, fast forward and here I am at SxSW.
This year, I am attending as a Racker and we have taken a different approach with the conference. We have enlisted a number of members from the Recruiting Team to be a part of the events and chat with talented folks attending the conference. I wrote a post about it on the Racker Talent site, but here is the list of Recruiters in attendance should anyone want to say hello to them on Twitter or while you are at SxSW.

If you like to meet passionate people, I recommend finding one of the team members!
Tomorrow I will be headed to a few sessions in the morning before going back to the Rackspace booth. It’s really crazy to see all of these high-tech and social media related
companies all in one spot – it’s like virtual world come to life… even though I know that to be true already, it’s just different in person.
On Monday night, we are having a great big Rackspace party at Maggie Mae’s starting at 8:00 PM. Word is that we will be raffling off two Gibson guitars among other exciting party features. Be sure to stop by if you get a chance!
So… for those of you who couldn’t make it this year – is there anything that you want me to learn about, blog about or bring back from SxSW? If so, drop a comment and I’ll do my best to find you the answer!
Back to non-virtual Twitter land!
