SXSW (South By Southwest) — the 10-day music, film, and interactive conference and festival — is underway in Austin, Texas.
It’s one of the biggest annual events for digital media professionals, and National Geographic is there. Or at least Robert Michael Murray is. He’s our Vice President for Social Media, and, as befits a guy with that title, he’s on Twitter.
His Twitter stream (below) will give you one window on what’s happening this year at SXSW — and provide perhaps the only public summary of Robert’s SXSW adventure.
Questions or comments? Contact Robert directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Robert doesn’t post his NGS email address anywhere online, so we dug up that alternate address (above) at Georgetown University’s School of Continuing Studies, where he is a consultant. Oddly enough, National Geographic’s website provides no information about how to reach our VP for Social Media or any other individual member of our Society’s staff — unless you’re an advertiser. Which strikes us as rather anti-social. … Robert, if you’re reading this — and we’ll tweet you a link so we’re sure you’ll see it — is there any chance you could add a few email links to, oh, the Magazine’s online masthead? We count more than 170 names, and there’s not an email address in sight. Thanks in advance for considering this idea.)
