dorkbotSXSW extravaganza!

-dustin younse-
We finally have some details to lay on you folks about our most
excellent SXSW event coming up.

Dorkbot is teaming up with Ignite Austin for an opening event at SXSWi
this year. We’ll be in Austin Music Hall instead of Brush Square Park.

The Event:
Ignite & Dorkbot SXSW – Vision of the Future 2021
Friday, March 11, 2011. 6-10pm.

We are looking for presenters to give Ignite-type talks (5 minutes, 20
slides) on the subject of “The Vision of the Future: 2021″. We’re also
looking for folks who would like to set up a booth inside the hall and
discuss their projects on a more personal level. Think MakerFaire but
fast-paced, for only one evening and with booze. Details here:
http://www.igniteaustin.org/

There will be other entertainment throughout the evening (TBA, but
probably who you’re thinking it is).

Dorkbot Austin is a zero-profit organization, which means we are
looking for sponsors to help pay for this year’s SXSWi event. If you
know of a business who would like some name recognition by making a
$500+ donation, have them contact Laura, Dustin or Katie for details.
If you’re working on a shoestring budget and would like to offer some
in-kind donations in exchange for a mention during the event, let’s
talk.

We’ll provide more information about the event and the space as we
have it. Join our Facebook
