Digital Hollywood

Being that I’ve just come from SXSW in Austin, it’s a bit of a culture shock arriving at Digital Hollywood this morning in NYC.  Before I give you the highlights from today, how about I start with a top ten list on the major differences between SXSW and Digi Hollywood?  I tried to make it a mix of pros and cons for both but by and large, my mission here is simple humor.  I’m good for that.

The Top Ten List: SXSW vs. Digital Hollywood

1) Digital Hollywood attendees think ‘monetization’ whereas SXSW attendees think ‘audience size’…by and large.

2) DH peeps rock a suit.  SXSW…more like whatever they rolled out of bed in after a night of binge drinking at Pure Volume.

3) DH: Wine. SXSW: Beer and the more the better.

4) DH: Dell  SXSW: Apple

5) DH: More coat check. Less filler.  SXSW: More stickers.  More graffiti.  More idea generation.  Less shampoo.

6) DH: No Wi-Fi (except in the conference center using some convoluted means to log on)  SXSW: Wi-Fi convention-wide (with small exceptions) AT&T…not so much.

7) DH: Overheard in the bathroom: Nothing.  SXSW: Overheard in the bathroom… Friend1: I just joined twitter this morning. Friend 2: JUST this morning?!? Friend1: Yah. (obvious embarrassment)

8) DH: What’s twitter? SXSW: Holy sh#t! Did you see that last guy’s tweet?! Someone just won SXSW Bingo.

9) DH: Keynote: Jeff Zucker (CEO NBC)  SXSW: Keynote: James Powderly (Co-founder Graffiti Research Lab)

10) DH: The entire traditional media universe peppered with some digi distribution folks.  SXSW: The entire web development community with little to no content creators.

In case you need another visual to drive this one home, have at it…
