The Y@ Pack is an informal confederation of enthusiasts who gather to share insights on a variety of digital media topics. The group began as the New Orleans’ Net Squared chapter, formed only six months ago, at the same time as chapters in markets more commonly associated with technology, like Atlanta, GA and SXSW’s own host city of Austin. Yet, New Orleans’ chapter has grown at twice the rate and has already generated participation on a regional level, prompting the evolution into a locally owned non-profit organization. The group has facilitated an impressive array of speaker presentations, and, more importantly, developed enthusiasm and a shared sense of purpose that is often verbalized and appreciated by those who have long considered themselves nomads in a technology desert. Each monthly meeting brings new members and substantive discussion. The energy that is galvanizing is palpable, and SXSW offers an ideal opportunity to demonstrate both the style and substance of “Digital Media, Louisiana Style.”
