DJ-ing the Energy of SXSW

by Larry Chiang on February 4, 2015

Larry Chiang’s 6th book, “What They Will NEVER Teach You at Stanford Business School WTWNTYASBS”, will launch 11-11-19 in a photo-booth like the Tresemme two-story tradeshow booth New York Fashion Week. As CEO of Duck9, he leads an army to help college student consumers get a FICO over 770. Post H.L.S. keynote, Harvard Business wrote: β€œWhat They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School” (his latest post: “Setting an intention for SXSWi“.

The demise of South by has been greatly over extrapolated.

Let’s DJ the energy of this dying franchise. Let us benefit from the below forecast. I’m an expert of many things south by. It’s because I gotta come to Austin anyway for UT baseball so I better find a legitimate business excuse to be here two weeks

Forecast of Franchise death

SXSW won’t die so long as me, Augie Garrido, UT baseball, Cockrell, Bob Metcalfe, mcCombs and Capital Factory are here.

All institutions πŸ˜‰

Forecast of Free Problem at SXSW: “constant blur of free barbecue, booze, and big business.”

In an article you can google: The biggest wins and fails in SXSW history, you’ll see an ominous presence of large corporations.

Not this year. Not in 2015’s SXSW DJ the energy of HBO

A little birdie told me #EntourageMovie will be promoted like how last year’s SXSW film winner was Mr Peabody. 35% over studio expectations. DJ that energy into some momentum for yourself.

26 sub-points in how to DJ the energy of a larger and more powerful force

-a- Dovetail what you’re promoting (a crappy app) into something cool and relevant. For example, fewer than 30,000,000 people read my GigaOm, VentureBeat, TechCrunch articles. So, I identified a CAT (consumer advocacy truth, more on that later) and backed the douchiest group of humans I could find: VCs πŸ˜‰

-b- Dovetail your crappy app (or in my case crappy articles coupled with the moist boring startup: FICO repair) Dovetail it to a themed party You produce a themed party. For example, I backed Mark Suster’s new blog back in 2010. The theme of my party was “#ReverseVC”. You might care zero that I credit educate tri-delts and gamma phi beta. But eating sushi that a VC paid for is glorious

-c- Dovetail DJ your crappy enterprise startup to an afterparty, after a Kauffman foundation party No one good wants to go to your party thats 7-10. Plus, even though SXSW “is dying”, there are still 3-5 unofficial SxSW parties that are kicking you ass. Solution: Do an 11 minute afterparty “Do an 11 minute afterparty” — Larry Chiang

-d- I have a JBA thesis I published in the 94305 zip code. It states an 11 minute entrepreneur party kicks that ass of a Samsung-Google-Irrelevant Behemoths relic’s SXSW effort. My Jedi in Business Admin states: “engineering up a tidal wave of momentum’s a Perpetual Promotion Machine” — @LarryChiang #LarryChiang Lol

-e- I just hashtagged myself into a meme

-f- Dovetail #EUTWMPPM “engineering up a tidal wave of momentum’s a Perpetual Promotion Machine” there are a thousand tweets I’ve tagged #EUTWMPPM. you’re welcome

-g- Dovetail your app to a “consumer advocacy truth” Duck9’s truth: There is a right side and wrong side to the interest rate equation. #LarryChiang’s truth: SXSW can be expensive and wrought with risk.

Return on Investment (ROI) is possible if you read five of my legendary blog posts on SXSW

– GigaOm

– VentureBeat

– Xconomy

– TechCrunch

-h- to -z- Accept and redirect energy of Entourage movie
