Thank you to the wonderful and weird city of Austin, Texas and SXSW for putting on a great event. If you call it a conference to the attendees they may give you a sly eye like one who calls Burning Man a festival. Grit Daily a startup and business news website hosted thousands of in person guests throughout the week and live streamed to hundreds of thousands more who were able to stream the interviews and virtually attend the first SXSW event in three years.
During the event Rich Ruddie was able to discuss about brand and reputation protection services, do's and dont's and covering detailed questions about the influence of artificial intelligence and deep fakes.

South by Southwest, abbreviated as SXSW and colloquially referred to as South By, is an annual conglomeration of parallel film, interactive media, and music festivals and conferences organized jointly and has been one of the biggest events in the great state of Texas. It was cancelled due to covid-19 in 2019, suddenly in 2020 due to it being a mid March event, and again in 2021. It was welcomed back in 2022 but attendance is still well below it's peak years earlier.
