We spoke at the Guardian’s SXSW Hack Day at the weekend. That’s typical of us, working the weekend like all hungry young start ups.
We didn’t do any hacking, we just showed some examples of the different things you can do with newsprint. Jemima has written a nice article about it here. I suspect Sales & Marketing’s killer phrase “the aesthetic is rather like Geocities – it doesn’t matter how it looks, it’s just very pleasing to have made [it]“. Will fly round the interent and deliver hundreds of sales.
Talking of sales, the Guardian were kind enough to use our award winning service to make a newspaper themselves which was handed out to all the hackers.
The picture above was taken by Aleks Krotoski of the chaps from Spotify, a music start up. They spoke just after us. They didn’t mention Geocities.
If you’d like to know which hacks won pop on over to the Guardian’s SXSW coverage. Thanks to all who came along to listen.
