Nate Silver & Bill Simmons: SXSW Event

SXSW began in 1987 as a music festival, and in 1994, it expanded to become one of film’s great showcases. Some people think it’s gotten too corporate and un-indie, but a new development has me intrigued. Beginning in March 2014, the Austin, Texas event will include SXSports, a slate of film screenings and panel discussions that will revolve around the world of sports and sports media. Grantland’s Bill Simmons (right) and 538′s Nate Silver (left), two of ESPN’s most visible and influential voices, will meet to discuss Media & The Personal Brand for one of the new program’s highest-profile events.
