South by Southwest

SXSW 2011

“There’s going to be a moment, and it could be in 2012 – you know for my party’s sake, I hope it’s in 2016 – but some independent candidate is gonna just come out of nowhere and raise a billion dollars on the Internet, saying ‘screw both these parties, it’s you and me baby, let’s go change this thing.’ It will be the end of the two parties.” – Joe Trippi, a panelist at a South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin; the topic of the panel:

“The people-powered revolution, fueled by the Internet and technology, will change the worlds of activism, media and politics.”

SXSW 2011 was also attended by Hankster buddy Rai-mon Nemar of LEGENDmag, the independent lifestyle magazine.
