It’s that time of year again: The time when tens of thousands of people descend on the city of Austin and it becomes the epicenter of all things music, film, and tech for a glorious 10 days. And thus, three of Name.com’s finest are packing up our bags, stocking up on Bearglecorn stickers, and heading down to Austin ourselves. There, we’ll hand out free domains, take part in one of the biggest hackathons in the business, and hopefully get a chance to chat with some of our Name.com customers.
We’ll be a South by Southwest Music Festival from Monday Mar. 14 until Thursday Mar. 17, and we’d love for you to come say hello!
We have some amazing things planned for our time in Austin, and are excited to see and hang out with as many of our Name.com customers as we can. So if you happen to be at SXSW at the same time we are, here’s an outline of where you can find us.
Monday 3/14, 6-8 p.m.: Find us at The Jackalope, where we’ll be handing out free domains and free beer. If you want to attend, head to reserve.ninja and reserve a Rightside domain name. One you’ve used the tool to save a domain name, the confirmation email will be your ticket in the door. Once you’re there, we’ll tell you the super secret promo code that can be used to get said domain for free and hand you a beer. Seriously, why wouldn’t you want to come?
Tuesday 3/15, 3 p.m. to Wednesday 3/16, 2 p.m.: We’re sponsoring the SXSW Music Hackathon Championship, a 24-hour hackathon event that’s going to be nuts. Final Presentations will happen on Wednesday Mar. 16 at 2 p.m., and it’s open to anyone with a SXSW badge. Stop by to see the celebrity panel of judges and find out which project will take home the prize.
Wednesday 3/16, 11 a.m.-9 p.m.: When we’re not at the Music Hack, we’ll be hanging out at Rightside’s booth at SEDO Domain Village. There will be free froyo, free donuts, free hot dogs—and if you’re really feeling adventurous, free tattoos! Come find us if you’d like to say hello or if you need someone to hold your hand while you’re getting your tattoo done. (Bonus points if it’s the Name.com logo or the Bearglecorn.)
Thursday 3/17, 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.: In honor of St. Patrick’s Day we’re doing something truly magical: Having a Bearglecorn scavenger hunt! Track down all three Bearglecorn signs posted within a few block of 4th and Brazos and tweet them to @namedotcom with the hashtag, #followthebearglecorn. When you have all three, meet us at Taco Shack for a totally random (but totally exciting) prize.
Still can’t track us down?
Can’t wait to see you at SXSW! It’s going to be epic.
