End SXSW Interactive with a bang by attending the closing session guaranteed to be unexpected, invented on the fly and quite an electrifying rant by the one and only Bruce Sterling.
Few so-called futurists can weave a narrative with as much skill, biting humor, irony and insight as Sterling. The author of numerous books and the keeper of the “Beyond the Beyond” blog for Wired, he is also an academic and the founder of the Viridian Design Movement.
For SXSW Interactive 2014, Sterling delivers his traditional Closing Remarks from 5:00-6:00 pm on Tuesday afternoon, March 11. in Exhibit Hall 5 of the Austin Convention Center. Attending his talk helps provide much-needed context, perspective and closure on the 800+ sessions, as well as the non-stop networking and social activities that have occurred over the previous five days.
In 2013, Sterling focused on "disruption" (one of the big buzz words of the tech world), arguing that disruption is merely a nicer word than death and destruction.
