In case you have been living under a rock some where for the last few weeks, let me fill you in on what you need to know this week:
1.) Super Tuesday was yesterday. (That has something to do with politics and a bunch of old dudes with money asking for your votes. People won, people lost, and some people still have no idea what I am talking about.)
2.) The South by SouthWest Conference (SXSW) officially kicks off on Friday March 9, 2012 in Austin, TX. (Just gohere and get your learn on if you don’t know what I’m talking about. It’s awesome, you should go, but if you are like me..you’ll be at work all next week..but, who’s bitter?..I’m not..)
Okay, so SXSW is the most important thing of note here and here’s why: SXSW is an amazing gathering of some wicked smart and creative people between tech, music, and film. With these things comes many awesome things like previews of new tech, what’s awesome on the internet, new groovy music, and some killer film sneak peaks. But, if that wasn’t enough to make SXSW totally awesome then there is the little issue of the parties and guess what makes killer parties even better: Knowing where they all are.
The crazy awesome folks over at ShoutEm have you covered. If you have an iPhone, are in Austin for SXSW, and can navigate to the app store, then you have access to the Austin Party Guide (Click here see..that was pretty easy, now wasn’t it?) In a collaboration with Gary’sGuide, ShoutEm has brought all the good things of Austin and SXSW partying into a simple interface for one to surf their way around to all the awesome things to do and partake while at the conference.
So, if you ARE in Austin and want to know who’s hosting a party, where, and all the important details, this app has your back. Know when the most awesome parties are going down and how to get there. How could it be any more simple? It couldn’t trust me, Google calendar is just not that cool (sorry Google, I still love you..) What? You want more… Fine.. The Party app also incorporates all of the wonderful things many have come to expect from a social app. By which I mean, you can share photos, check in at locations, share tips with friends, etc. Everything one needs to party, document the insanity, then brag to their friends.
Don’t miss the party friends, get the app, party hard, and be sure to visit ShoutEm on the trade floor.
