Ketner Group at SXSW Interactive
March 19, 2010  |  By Ketner Group

Hey everyone! I had a great time at SXSW Interactive and all the corresponding awesome events like Lani & Benn’s kick-off #BATHH (badass Twitter Happy Hour, for all of you non-Austinites) and Pinqued‘s #TechKaraoke. Though they were certainly hit or miss, I learned a lot at some of the panel sessions (look for a full blog on the highlights next Monday), but the greatest part was getting to meet tons of new people in technology, social media, design, etc. — and seeing tons of my favorite smart people in Austin that I wish I could see way more often.

More than 150,000 people were killed, and hundreds of thousands more injured, during the violent 7.0 earthquake that rocked Port-au-Prince to its core. The global response, however, to the plight of the people of Haiti has been a beautiful sight to behold. Millions of dollars have been pledged and…Read More

Beauty is only skin deep. Right?

I’m a big believer in inner beauty — a huge fan of Dove’s famous Campaign for Real Beauty, a follower of feminist ideals, you name it. But I can’t deny the huge rule that image plays in peoples’ perceptions and beliefs regarding just about everything, from the latest runway fashions to celebrities to homes to the logo design on a box of trash bags.
