It’s the time of year again – when thousands of tech companies, from the smallest startups to the most established brands, descend upon Austin TX for the conference to end all conferences – South by Southwest Interactive Festival. This year promises to be bigger than any before and NeighborGoods is going to be there in full force! We hope to have the opportunity to meet with many of our members, supporters and of course Shareable readers. Here is a list of events where you can find us. Be sure to say hi!

Local Online Communities: Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
Americans are increasingly turning to high tech tools to recreate the small town experience. Join us for a discussion with pioneers of local tech to learn about how location-based technologies are connecting people to create the next generation economy and a more engaged citizenry. We’ll cover tools of the trade, best practices and give you tips on how you can infuse place into your project. Finally, we’ll envision what the ideal connected neighborhood might look like in the future. LEVEL: Beginner
