Mark Zuckerberg to Keynote at SXSW

The South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival has just announced their keynotes for this year. Mark Zuckerberg will be presenting on Sunday March 9 at 2 p.m. He will be interviewed by the author and BusinessWeek columnist Sarah Lacy.

“We are thrilled to have Mark Zuckerberg as a keynote speaker at SXSW Interactive this year,” said SXSW Interactive Festival Director, Hugh Forrest. “Our community is fascinated with the ongoing growth of Facebook — and I know they will enjoy hearing Zuckerberg’s insights on the future of his company and the space as a whole. Moreover, his emergence as a global technology trend-setter at such a young age reflects the power of new media that we showcase each year at SXSW Interactive.”

Will you be at SXSW this year? I will be covering the entire event on this site as well as on The Social Times. I’ll be posting video of the Zuckerberg interview soon after it takes place. I’m sure others will be present to stream the keynote live. To find out more about South by Southwest you can check out the SXSW website.
