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.
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.
Look for these Mozillians appearing at SXSW sessions (Interactive Festival, unless noted):

SXSW is a long event, especially if you stay for the film and music festivals. Pace yourself, hydrate, and before you go to sleep, remember to plug in all the devices.
