07 Mar: Seen and Heard at SXSW: The Highlights

If it’s March, the place to be is at South by Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas.

The nine-day festival that revolves around music, film and tech is in its 17th year. Known for being the festival where Twitter and Foursquare took off, it began with just 700 attendees in 1987.

This year more than 70,000 — from artists to media — flocked to the capital city of Texas. Best Buy was on the scene, taking in the sights, sounds, and flavors.
