SXSW Interactive 2017 Recap; Part Duex

SXSW Interactive had so many great technology demos, events and parties that carried on through the entire festival, which has been rare in the years past. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to cover all the technology events; next year I should have a telepresence to cover everything I can’t. I didn’t make it to Youtube, Pandora, Capital One at the infamous Antone’s, OtterBox uniVERSE Case System, Mashable and many more.

While planning my SXSW schedule I picked out the below events based on my personal preferences. These four events were very fun and their lounges and or parties had a ton of interactive demos to try out during SXSW. Continue Reading →

SXSW® Interactive Innovation Awards 2017

I have never attended the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards before this year. I promise I always made a valiant effort but for those who have attended SXSW understand the events, films, and live music are overwhelming. Proudly this year folks “I MADE IT!”

It was held at the Austin downtown Hilton location which was very convenient to the Austin Convention Center. The ceremony was slow going and frankly not that entertaining then again it’s the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards so I should not be too harsh. Continue Reading →

Note from Editor: Hi-Tech Chic’s Journey for 2017

As of last week I will no longer be writing for Cutegeek.com. My main focus will now be growing and building up this site, Hi-Tech Chic.

Hi-Tech Chic has been off to a great start this year with events like CES 2017 in Las Vegas. I experienced more robots than I have ever seen, the drone rodeo in the desert and several different booths with virtual reality. Needless to say it was a blast!

Another great event I attended was GDC in San Francisco and the AMD launch events including the after party with Mix Master Mike, which was AWESOME! Continue Reading →

Happy International Women’s Day! WOMEN ROCK!

My abuelita and I around the same age!

Happy International Women’s Day! When I think of all the amazing women in my life and those I had the lovely experience to meet I realize how awesome us women are.

What woman inspires you every day? For me it’s my abuelita for starting off as a secretary at the airforce base and retired as the Chief Transportation Officer. How inspiring as that? Every time I think I can’t do something I think of her and remind myself that I can. If she was able to overcome the obstacle of not only being a woman in the work place but also being Hispanic in a time where it wasn’t that accepted I can overcome any thing. Continue Reading →
