Mixel: Art, Tablets and the Creator Economy

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Sunday 11th March, 2012

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

What comes after just reading on iPad? A new form of creation that's much closer to consumption than what we saw on desktops and laptops. Mixel co-founder and CEO Khoi Vinh takes a look at the journey that led him to create Mixel, the world's first social collage app. Its goal is to get non-artists making art, and Vinh will look at the ways in which the social network has met, exceeded and fallen short of that goal.
