This is a guest post from Gary Sharma (aka “The Guy with the Red Tie”), founder and CEO of GarysGuide and proud owner of a whole bunch of black suits, white shirts and, at last count, over 40 red ties. This was my third year attending South by Southwest (aka SXSW) down in Austin, Texas. But every year a TON of folks show up and have an amazing time cuz at the end of the day its really all about meeting interesting people and learning about cool stuff and SXSW has it all! 🙂 Hooray for the free ride & southern hospitality! The Texas sunshine was a welcome relief from the frigid, polar-vortexy New York weather we’ve been having all winter.
