SXSW Interactive is proud and thrilled to announce that Rachel Maddow will speak on the featured session, A Conversation with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, at the Austin Convention Center in Exhibit Hall 5 on Sunday, March 10, at 12:30pm. The critically acclaimed host of MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show, and one of America’s leading progressive voices, Maddow will make her SXSW debut by bringing her signature wit and intelligence to a wide-ranging discussion on politics, pop culture, and the news of the day. She’ll discuss her New York Times bestselling book, Drift, and about how the new normal of constant U.S. military engagement around the globe affects civilian life and politics here at home.
SXSW Interactive is an amazing hub of creativity and innovation, driven by talented individuals who simply love their craft and few love their craft like the photographer. For 2013, we're excited to join forces with Lytro to present PhotoCamp at SXSW. With unique sessions on the evolution of photography, digital asset management and a Photographer Meet Up, you won't want to miss this very special day.
