An Exciting Launch at SXSW

Needless to say, the official ^ public launch at South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive was an exciting time for us. Austin is quite lively for the week and a half that the conference and festival takes places people were eager to network, discover what’s new, and share their ideas with like-minded individuals. It was the perfect place to reveal ^IfMine to the world, as we’re all about connecting people that know with people that do.

Brian Scavo was on the streets of Austin handing out free ^IfMine t-shirts, and so we’ve chronicled some of the smiling faces that stopped by to grab one. To see how fun our SXSW visit was, check out our Twitter feed from the last few days. Also, check out the photo album on Flickr, Instagram, or in the slideshow below!

How Much Information Do You Share?

Humans have an inner desire to connect with others and the Internet makes it easy. Good things…incredible things happen when great minds align and collaborate together.

Ten years ago, much of the world was unconnected. Facebook and Twitter didn’t exist. I hesitated to share my full name online. I was simply D H.

Prison Planet

Now, I blast off status updates, have hundreds of photographs displayed around the web and openly share ideas with other people.

However, I’m not an open-book. Important life details are private and it’s a rare occasion when I publicly announce my location away from home.

According to, 90% of adults think people are sharing too much information.
