PrairieCast: Nathan T. Wright & Jeff Slobotski talk South by Southwest

February 25, 2010 by

This was a week of firsts for PrairieCast. We had our first two-part show as well as our first two guest show. Nathan T. Wright of LavaRow and Jeff Slobotski of Silicon Prairie News joined us to talk about the upcoming South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive conference in Austin, Texas.

Nathan and Jeff are veterans of this show, dubbed by many to be “spring break for geeks,” and both are presenting sessions this year. We discuss their presentations, The Silicon Prairie Party hosted by Big Omaha in Austin, as well as how their past experience at SXSW has impacted their lives today.

In addition to guests, PrairieCast includes a Week in Review segment where we discuss the stories published in the Des Moines City Edition of Silicon Prairie News over last week as well as an SPN Tip of the Week, where we present an in-depth look at features of the new site.

PrairieCast can be streamed or downloaded from or by subscription in iTunes or RSS.

PrairieCast is recorded weekly at the 48Web Studios in Des Moines and is a co-production of Silicon Prairie News and 48Web.
