Discover and read the best of Twitter Threads about #SXSW

Most recents (24)

common themes during the #sxsw panels were consistency and persistence.

waking up to work for others is easy, but when it comes to showing up for ourselves, we often struggle.

here are some productivity solutions i like to employ to provide some balance and structure:

use a calendar

don't underestimate the impact of a structured schedule.

a well-organized calendar helps plan and track your personal goals and tasks.

It allows you to visualize your progress and prioritize your time effectively.

set personal goals

create clear, achievable goals and identify a long-term vision.

break this vision down into smaller, manageable milestones and celebrate each achievement.

House Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi is about to join @EmCollective Senior Advisor @evanasmith at #SXSW for @TheAtlantic's FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY summit. I'll be live-tweeting excerpts from their conversation.
.@evanasmith kicks off with a question about the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (in Pelosi's backyard).

“I don’t think there’s any appetite in this country for bailing out a bank," Pelosi responds, while conceding the need to protect depositors and small businesses. #SXSW
Pelosi on SVB: "What we would hope to see by tomorrow morning is for some other bank to buy the bank."

She says there are multiple potential buyers, but can't reveal them.

#FlaminHot! premieres at #SXSW today. It's an Eva Longoria-directed film that tells the story of Richard Montañez, who rose from janitor to executive at Frito-Lay and has long claimed to have invented the wildly popular Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.…
It's also been shadowed by a blockbuster Times story from @SamAugustDean disproving Montañez’s account of his role in the origin of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, published in 2021 when the film was already in development.#FlaminHot…
"Feels like L.A. Times would have better resources dedicated to more important things," Eva Longoria said in a recent phone interview about #FlaminHot. “We never set out to tell the history of the Cheeto,” she contended.…

Thoughts on Day One of #SXSW

- Last year, SXSW was overtaken by crypto & the metaverse. This year, it’s generative AI. In one of the most anticipated sessions of the week, OpenAI cofounder Greg Brockman took the stage to squash concerns around misinformation & sentience.

🧵 ImageImageImage
Brockman did little to address the anxiety surrounding AI instead focusing on optimism. While Brockman is limited in what he can say especially at a large-scale forum like SXSW, his session left me with more questions than answers.
It may not have been on the agenda, but #svb just became one of the central focuses. I’ve overheard it discussed in the lines for sessions, at Starbucks & there are reports of tech founders checking their wire transfers on stage. So, whose going to spin up a dedicated SVB panel?

What @doodles did last night was something I’ve never seen in NFTs. Forget terms like bullish and bearish…those are often short term phrases. Last night shows me Doodles is a brand ready to permeate pop culture for years to come. Here’s why…

👇(THREAD 🧵 1/8)👇 Image
Let’s start with Julian Holguin, the new @doodles CEO, previously President at Billboard. He looks like a home run hire. He delivered an Apple-like keynote (again, NEVER seen this in Web3) about the direction of the brand with polish and stage presence.

👇(THREAD 🧵 2/8)👇 Image
Off the rip, he read mission and vision statements. It cannot be overlooked the time and thought major multinational brands put into this sort of thing, sweating every word. Many NFT brands lack identity. Doodles has a clear direction and North Star.
