Event Details

Don't miss the the Heather Gold Show, one of the true highlight events of SXSW Interactive. For 2010, Heather conversates on the theme Get Excited And Make Things with guests:

Developers Gina Trapani,  Jeremy Keith, media inventor and writer Robin Sloan (w the awesomest Kickstarter project), filmmaker (nerdcore rising) and comic Negin Farsad and you.

Making stuff makes you happy.

Is making stuff the answer to the econopocalyse?


Enjoy being part of great conversation and meeting cool people in a cushy, lounge-y type place with tasty drinks.
