Lots of things happen on the Internet every week — but you already know that. Here’s some of the stuff that captured my attention (or just made me laugh) in my first two weeks back in the office after being in India for a month.
If you’re on Twitter, you no doubt know that SXSW, the annual music, film, and interactive conference, was going on down in Austin, Texas last week. And if you weren’t at SXSW, you were probably (at least) mildly annoyed by all of the SXSW hashtags in your timeline. That’s why #FakeSXSW, a hashtag that pokes good-natured (mostly, I mean, it’s the Internet) fun at the conference, was so fantastic.
Spilled coconut water all over my Chromebook but meeting so many AMAZING people & seeing The Lumineers tonight in an old dumpster! #fakeSXSW
