DC, Maryland & Virginia Representing at SXSW

25 Feb DC, Maryland & Virginia Representing at SXSW

UPDATE (3/2/11): Over at Tech Cocktail, Frank Gruber just posted about DC startup GroupFlier, who Tech Cocktail is working with to push out things like event updates and reminders from SXSW via GroupFlier’s free group texting platform. Read more about what they’re doing with the Tech Cocktail SXSW group here.

Earlier today, iStrategyLabs CEO and DCWEEK co-founder Peter Corbett posted a link to the DC Tech Facebook group pointing to New York by Southwest, a hub to help New Yorkers support each other during the mega SXSW Interactive Festival. I looked to see if I could find a comparable listing or site for DC, but came up short.

I pulled together a quick list of local (DC, Maryland, Virginia) companies representing at SXSW from March 11-15 (complete with boilerplates!). Am I missing anyone? Anyone know of any DMV folks who will be speaking during SXSW? Let me know in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.
