Stop Working Nights / Weekends and Get a Life!

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Monday 14th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

The myth of the tech world is that working 80+ hrs week is required to keep up and innovate. While you worked 80+ hrs this week I have been riding a bike down the US coast and am more successful than you. The time you spend away from your office and in the real world is the source of real inspiration and innovation. Come learn tips, trick and lessons on how to get a life while still having an awesome career.
