The Virtual South By Southwest (SXSW Experience
By Larry Chiang
Suffering from FOMO (fear of missing out)?! Larry Chiang has just the cure for you.
Goodness, I just referred to myself in the third person.
Anyway… If you’re like me, you’re getting more inundated with SXSW updates. Perhaps even more than Linsanity during the NY Knicks, pre-Carmelo Anthony.
Common knee jerk reactions to SXSW include
– Dismissing SXSW as a drink-fest
– Citing the douXi, douchie
– Surfing Kayak for kicks and giggles
– Proclaim you’re to busy this year and sound like a perennial Cubs fan: WAIT TIL NEXT YEAR
Benefit from SXSW now.
Get the benefit of going before you go next year. Or go again because you’re sitting this year out.
You see, I hacked business school
I got engineers the knowledge and the network of business school before they graduated engineering.
So how do you get the knowledge and benefit of SXSW virtually?!?!
11 real world events engineered to get you your ROI of attending SXSW before SXSW.
Do you see a pattern here??
Kick butt via social media
Kick butt in the real world.
99% of people not going to SXSW simply sour grape it and dismiss it. Don’t be that cliche puppy on a porch. My realizing that I was a walking cliche gave a sliver of a chance to be special. The pattern you don’t want to fall into is sitting out of the game AND MENTALLY CHECKING OUT OF THE GAME.
