Best of SXSW - PHOTOS

blog by Kathryn Przybyla  •   •  

With warm temperatures and some of the world’s most creative minds together, our visit to Austin for SXSW Interactive festival was one of the best yet.

Here, we have compiled some of our favorite moments from the trip, when we weren’t learning the tricks of the trade—and sometimes, when we were. Back in Buffalo now, we can’t wait to develop new ideas with the Buffalo News and…

Turning laughs into pageviews - SXSW DAY 5

blog by S.J. Velasquez  •   •  

SXSW Interactive is filled with the typical media, tech and startup folks, but there’s also a good number of comedic types who show up, drawing massive crowds at panels and lines seemingly miles long at book signings.

Comedians—some of whom qualifying as legitimate celebrities—and other comedy-minded speakers at SXSW provide more than just entertaining sessions. As we’ve seen in…

Buffalo Zoo’s polar bear cub says, ‘Give me a name!’

blog by Ben Tsujimoto  •   •  

The Buffalo Zoo’s new polar cub didn’t wait long before becoming an international sensation. The fact that she hasn’t appeared on “The Late Show with David Letterman” yet astounds us.

Regardless, the temporary name of “Luna” will not do. Honestly, it makes us think of Luna Lovegood, the bright-yet-aloof “Harry Potter” character. We can’t have those kind of associations connected…

blog by Caitlin Campbell McNulty  •   •  

Charles Fashana and his wife, Karen are familiar faces at events throughout the region.

You might know him by his twitter handle, @CharlieFlash23. Or, perhaps you work with him through his day job as a marketing manager with First Niagara Bank. Then again, maybe you know him as the energetic president of the Advertising Club of Buffalo. If you’re really networking, you probably know him as all three. And if you don’t know Charles Fashana at all, read on!

Meet Indonesian boutique owner Novi Paluch - INTERVIEW

blog by Genna Mitchell  •   •  

By now, Buffalo should know the name Novi Paluch, but more importantly, you should recognize this smile.

It was just a short year ago that Paluch could be spotted adorning Grant Street with handmade linens from Indonesia outside of the West Side Bazaar with hopes of one day running her own shop. In a private conversation outside of the Sasmita Batik, Paluch talks more about her…

BN 360, Social Media Club to host mixer at Saturn Club

blog by Ben Kirst  •   •  

Social Media Club and BN 360 join forces on Wednesday, March 20.

We all have busy schedules, and it can be difficult to decide how and when to network. Look at me, I think I’m Caitlin ‘Young Money’ Campbell McNulty!  You put in eight to 10 hours at work, you want to hit the gym, you have errands to run, stuff to catch up, your family expects you to show your face once in a while—it can be tough to carve out even a couple extra hours for…

With literally hundreds of sessions and panels to choose from, SXSW has given S.J. and I little downtime while in Austin this week.

Planning our schedules for the day every morning, we’ve found multiple talks from organizations and industry leaders that were taking place at the same times, across town and sometimes just impossible to get to. Luckily for us, the internet is a…

These are the best of [the New York] Times - SXSW DAYS 3, 4

blog by S.J. Velasquez  •   •  

When it comes to journalism in America—and arguably the world—the New York Times is it, so you can imagine my fangirl face when I had the chance to interact with multiple reporters, editors and contributors for the Times over the last few days.

Who Runs the (Internet) World: Women

I began my Sunday morning by securing a spot in the audience for the “Who Run the (Internet) World:…

Meeting mentors and taking names - SXSW DAY 3

blog by Kathryn Przybyla  •   •  

It really is incredible the people you can meet at a well organized conference.

Being a writer and content creator myself, some of my biggest idols and inspirations in the industry are here in Austin, giving talks and are more than willing to chat—something very unique to SXSW. It’s basically a nerd fest with tech people from all over the world geeking out together. I love it. So…
