Mozilla at SXSW 2012

  • Comments off

Building on the momentum generated by Mozilla at Mobile World Congress last week, this week we’re rolling into Austin, Texas for South by Southwest. If you’re attending SXSW, please join us at events and sessions.

Reminder: Daylight Savings Time starts on Sunday, March 11 at 2am. Clocks move forward one hour. Sunday sessions are earlier than you expect them to be.

Events

Mozilla is partnering with Samsung Mobile and Twitter to present FEED at Austin Museum of Art—Arthouse at the Jones Center, 700 Congress Avenue. Mozilla is sponsoring events Friday to Monday. Please join us on Saturday and Sunday nights for drinks and music on the rooftop deck. Or, if you’re looking for a quiet place during the day to have a conversation or recharge away from the crowds, please stop by, and see an installation using Collusion. Art hackers Beak Labs will also be creating a Popcorn.js installation live on site. The space is open from 10am to 6pm, and 9pm to 2am.

We’re also participating in the Knight Foundation’s Media Innovation Fair at Brush Square Park on Saturday and sponsoring the Austin JavaScript riverboat cruise on Sunday evening.
