  • TechStars Live!

    TechStars, is an elite startup accelerator in the world, and by the numbers, it is harder to get in to than any Ivy League school. One of the hurdles in the TechStars guantlet is the live interview. Come and watch the TechStars team conduct live interviews with actual finalist companies. TechStars will work to identify and push hard on the core issues and then will have a candid discussion with the audience about that company. It will be like being an insider to the selection process within TechStars, and we think it will be very educational for all early stage entrepreneurs and investors. This session has been sponsored by Mircrosoft.

    by Josephine Dorado, Paul Marino and Chris Burke

    Acclaimed “talk show in game space” This Spartan Life will conduct live interviews “under fire” in the videogame Halo, projected on the screen before the audience. Dodging virtual bullets in the mixed reality of SXSW & Halo, This Spartan Life’s creator & producer, Chris Burke & Josephine Dorado, along with Paul Marino, Lead Cinematic Designer at BioWare, will present ideas on extending game culture, filmmaking, DIY media & the importance of play. They’ll do their best to keep their guests safe from plasma rifle-wielding aliens. How will they fare? See for yourself. Using Halo as its backdrop, the show began as an underground sensation and has since scored glowing reviews in Wired Magazine, the BBC, BusinessWeek & BoingBoing. Described by Wired Magazine as “a mash-up of The Charlie Rose Show & Doom,” TSL combines high-brow interviews with the likes of the late Sex Pistols manager, Malcolm McLaren & the rock band OK Go with the frag-fest of videogame culture. www.thisspartanlife.com
