South by Southwest (SXSW) is one of the premiere festivals for technology, film and music, and it attracts thinkers, makers, designers, celebrities, scientists and artists from all over the world. Checking in on the plethora of panels and exhibits can be tricky, even for those lucky enough to go to Austin, Texas, and virtually impossible for the rest of us. (Videos are hard to come by.)
First up is "The Maker Age: Enlightened Views on Science & Art" led by Adam Savage of "MythBusters" fame. On the same page, you'll find Lamm's impressions on the BBC panel "What If We Could Stay Young Forever?" presented by BBC correspondent Peter Bowes.
Next up are Anne Wojcicki, CEO and co-founder of 23AndMe, who presented on "The Future Of Genetics In Our Everyday Lives," a conversation with cartoonist Ralph Steadman and a panel entitled "The Future of Food Processing."
Sure, it's just a snapshot from a few panels, but for those of us hungry for a taste of SXSW, Lamm's creative take on the goings-on is food for thought.
