The democratization of innovation is upon us as new technologies allow anyone to create what used to require large industries and expensive factories. Whatever you call this new breed of innovators—hackers, creators, makers, or DIYers—this burgeoning group has taken up the mantle of modern day Nikola Teslas.
The second annual SXSW Create will bring together local and international members of the SXSW community to share disruptive creations and showcase the latest tools and fabrication methods. This special event will occur in an exciting outdoor venue adjacent to the Austin Convention Center and focus heavily on hands-on activities.
Gain high-profile brand exposure through sponsoring the Wire Image Studio, the official photography studio of SXSW! The studio is a private, branded space where all important Music, Film and Interactive participants will be photographed.

SXSW Gaming is thrilled to have John Romero, CEO and CCO of Lootdrop, speak on a historical perspective of Apple's impact on games. Romero is a completely self-taught programmer, designer and artist whose work spans over 130 games, including iconic works like "Wolfenstein 3D," "Doom" and "Quake." His latest Facebook game, "Ravenwood Fair," has gained roughly a million players a week since its release in late October 2010.
One of the earliest “indie” developers, Romero has been working in the game space since 1979 before moving to the Apple II in 1981. Romero’s current areas of interest are Facebook games and massively multiplayer online (MMO) games as well as social media and its intersection with gaming. Look for our upcoming feature on Romero in the February issue of SXSWORLD magazine.
