COM Program Digital Media Mavens hit SXSW in Austin, Texas

sxsw2012Flip the Media is heading off to Austin, Texas this week for the SXSW interactive festival and oh, what a trip it’s shapin’ up to be.

Six students from the Master’s in Digital Media program are setting out on the road for a vagabond adventure fit for Jack Kerouac. It took awhile to get the final team assembled, but you can trust we’ve got the right balance of rowdy techies, artists, musicians, technologists, and geeks (like me) to make a five day interactive event a worthwhile adventure.

So how did this whole random adventure begin? Social media and Facebook of course, how else would a random road-trip start in a digital media program. To get a good perspective on how this all came about let’s to go back a few weeks to a Flip the Media Blog meeting where co-editor Jonathan Cunningham posted the question on Facebook “Who is going to SXSW in Austin this year?” Two minutes later a thread began and the rest is history.
