Greening South By Southwest

The Bennu team just returned from a trip to Austin, TX attending the 2012 South By Southwest Interactive Festival. The legendary event was the birthplace of Twitter, Foursquare and countless other technology startups and trends. It’s a mashup of thought leaders, technologists and cultural tastemakers coming together to accelerate the innovation curve.

This year, Bennu Co-Founder & CEO, Ashok Kamal, joined world-famous environmentalist and eco-entrepreneur, Philippe Cousteau, to discuss “Gaming the Environment for Positive Change.” The panel was a great success and you can read the full recap, “Can Green Gamification Save The World?“, courtesy of Triple Pundit.

But a picture is worth a thousand words, so we’ve composed a photo blog to share a bird’s eye view of the SXSW scene. Enjoy!
