anti-social media, the forgotten zip codes and sxsw

a reason or reasons to vote for us to speak @ SXSW:

well, for one thing, we'd be the only mutha fuckas representing the forgotten zip codes, anti-social media, and the creative culture that truly drives technology.

we ask that you vote for us thru the sxsw panel picker, a direct link is provided below, or search the bugbee name after hitting the INTERACTIVE FESTIVAL PROGRAMMING PROPOSALS link.

our aim is to bring the entrepreneurial spirit of the true creative, to a world of squares, content with cubical livin and ikea spending sprees... our target is the suits who try to use social media as another sell you something hustle, continuing to clog it up with old world marketing, forgetting that 'social media' is all about the free exchange of ideas... a place where folks can get together and communicate, open and honestly... without so many middle men and restrictions.

'social media' is also a world of opportunity and adventure... something we found out first hand as we spent a year on the road with nothing but craigs list, some social media outlets, and determination... staying with strangers, seeing the sights and living life... we also posted close to 150 short videos, hundreds of photos, blog entries, and podcasts, ultimately resulting in a upcoming book and documentary film.

our sxsw panel idea is an extension of an article amy did for chris pirillo here:

and it's all based on our year long road trip documented in part here: http://www.ayearatthewheel.com

My Photo
Name:

over 20 years of refusing the invites of the educated, celebrity and ruling classes, preferring instead the excitement of upper low class, poverty, petty crime and violence.

It's not the wine and cheese I hate, it's the boring, void of anything lives the rich and privileged scurry thru like the walking dead on meth - most of the rich think their cultured simply by consuming - culture can't be bought, it must be lived.

I was truly meant to live on the side of a hill, growing my own tomatoes, basil and garlic in peace with my soul mate and dog.
