Where were you on Monday night? If you weren’t at the Great Jalopnik Throwdown, our SXSW event at the Hype Hotel, you missed one of the best parties Austin—maybe even the entire world—has ever seen.
If you’re in Austin tonight, there’s only one place you should be, and that’s The Great Jalopnik Throwdown at SXSW. We’re going to talk autonomous cars, we’re going to talk the future of driving, we’re going to hang out, and we’re going to listen to killer music. What’s better than that?
The US government is offering seven cities a remarkable challenge: reinvent urban transportation for the 21st century, with a particular focus on autonomous vehicles. To pull it off, those cities will work with some of the world’s most powerful tech companies, and are eligible to get $40 million from the US Department…
“We don’t like our car bumping into things,” said Chris Urmson, head of Google’s self-driving project, addressing the February 14 incident where Google’s car struck a bus. “This was a tough day for us.”
How would I describe The Great Jalopnik Throwdown At SXSW? It’s like a TED Talk, involving cars, but everyone took acid beforehand. And with a DJ and some really great music. You have to come, and you have to RSVP right away.
This is your official reminder to RSVP for our incredible SXSW Throwdown next Monday! What are you waiting for? It’s going to be the greatest party the world has ever seen!
Are you going to be in Austin for SXSW? You could spend big bucks on a badge to hear the startup crowd bloviate about #disrupting, or you could come to Jalopnik’s big throwdown instead! The Great Jalopnik Throwdown at SXSW is coming Monday, March 14, from 6-10 p.m.
I’d never seen a Fast And Furious film before the surprise premiere of Furious 7 at Austin’s SXSW, but I’d seen enough clips that I thought I knew what to expect. Nope. There were way more cars flying out of planes than I’d imagined and The Rock and Jason Statham fight in a room full of windows. It was fantastic.
The man police say drove into a crowd of SXSW-goers in Austin early this morning, killing two and injuring 23, was in a car stolen from a soldier and had an outstanding arrest warrant, authorities said this afternoon.
As if the check-in lines aren't bad enough, the Austin American Statesman is reporting that swag bags received by South By South West (SXSW) attendees are causing security slow-ups at Austin Bergstrom International Airport as people head home from the festival.
I wasn't lying about that car hacking panel at SXSW, and here's some video proof! It was great to be there, and we had a good turnout, and have even bigger plans for next year. Like maybe having an actual car to do things to.
A man fleeing Austin police drove through a barricade and crashed into a crowd of people attending in the SXSW music festival, killing two on a moped, and injuring dozens others.
The reason I'm out here at SXSW is because I was invited to be on a panel called, optimistically, Will Hackers & Makers Save Car Culture? And while I'm pretty sure car culture is doing just fine, we're entering a golden age of car hacking, and we want to talk about it.
Everyone who's played Mario Kart secretly wants it to be real. Sure, flinging turtle shells and banana peels at other cars will probably get you arrested, and while I once did go karting after eating some shrooms, I can't say it helped my speed. So I was exited to try real-life Mario Kart at SXSW. Here's what it's…
You think you're too cool for South By Southwest, the annual tech and music conference that takes over Austin, Texas for two weeks? Then I have four words for you: Real Life Mario Kart. Nothing could possibly be better than that.
