Behance at SXSW

A few of us at Behance just returned from the South By Southwest Conference, where our very own Bryan Latten, Chris Henry, Dave Stein, and Scott Belsky represented the team in Austin, Texas.

For the third year in a row, Action Method Mobile was a finalist in the web awards. We didn’t take home the prize for Mobile, but were proud to stand next to foursquare, Gowalla, NBA League Pass, and Flook – congratulations to Gowalla!

Behance caught some great events; Chris and Dave commented that they especially enjoyed panel discussions on Community Management, and also on the future of Search Engines.

Scott served as a judge in Microsoft’s BizSpark Accelerator competition, and found time to make an appearance in CNN’s coverage of the event. Check out CNN’s “Tech Talk” video clip, where Scott gives his opinions on tech trends, and the future of location based services!

Penguin Interviews Belsky

Behance founder Scott Belsky recently spoke on Penguin’s podcast, “The Business Beat.” The theme of the episode was bridging the gap between having a vision and solving a problem. Host Courtney Young talks to Belsky about how creative people can become more productive by getting organized, building a supportive community, and gleefully killing ideas.
