5 Positive Economic Indicators of SXSW

March 16, 2011

Just a few hints from SXSW that the economy is getting back on track:

  1. The SXSW program guide was the size of a phone book. And it was packed with ads
  2. Most of the new startups I saw that had recently landed funding were completely silly and useless (always a good sign)
  3. Ad people were everywhere at the show, as were their clients. I sat next to Draft FCB and BBDO on the plane to Austin, and Digitas on the return flight
  4. Even the publishing companies were feeling flush, sending big teams and throwing parties
  5. Cocaine
