Innovators Use Virtual Reality to Improve Our World

March 13, 2018

Walking around SXSW (and a lot of walking that is, let me tell you), you can’t go five minutes without seeing some sort of virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) installation. Our own #DellExperience has no fewer than three different VR or mixed reality experiences event attendees can check out. It’s not necessarily the hot new, break-out thing that everyone hopes to find at this annual mix of industry conferences, trade shows and festivals, though. VR’s been here for…

SXSW: Meet us at a Celebration of Entrepreneurs

March 8, 2018

Every year, I look forward to South By Southwest (SXSW), Austin’s annual music/film/interactive/comedy festival. Not just because it’s in my backyard of Austin, Tx. Not just because Dell puts on a fabulous week-long activation called the “Dell Experience.” I look forward to it because SXSW attracts the best of the best in terms of entrepreneurial spirit. The likes of Twitter and Foursquare chose SXSW to launch themselves onto the world. And for good reason. The energy at SXSW is unparalleled…

NAFTA Should Be Strengthened, Not Terminated

As NAFTA negotiations continue this week, it is important to remember the many benefits that free and open trade bring to the United States. In 2014, U.S. trade with Canada and Mexico supported over 12 million American jobs. The U.S. exported $604 billion in goods and services to Mexico and Canada in 2015 – a $375 billion increase since 1999. Unfortunately, these jobs and economic growth will all be put at risk if we withdraw from or significantly alter NAFTA.
