SXSW Where to Eat Map, a collaboration with Food+Tech Connect, Eat Well Guide, and Animal Welfare Approved
South by Southwest Interactive is a yearly conference in Austin, Texas that brings together engineers, entrepreneurs, and technology companies looking to share best practices, see emerging trends, and connect over the exciting developments happening around the world. Anthony, our CEO, is in Austin this weekend taking in the event, so if you’re there and want to connect you can ping him on twitter: @tonynicalo
Where to Eat in Austin
We got together with Food+Tech Connect, Eat Well Guide, and the Animal Welfare Approved to cultivate a list of stand-out food spots in town, and you might be surprised to hear it’s not all barbecue! Head to www.foodtree.com/sxsw to install the app on any mobile phone and to consult the list while you’re looking for your next meal.
The collaboration on the mobile app culminates tomorrow night during a special dinner event called Networked Food System. The gathering will welcome innovators, entrepreneurs, government officials and food systems experts to a delicious dinner and conversation about the direction our food system is headed. Our team tracked down the origin of all the food served during their meal and included that in the app well.
Below are some screenshots from the SXSW Where to Eat app and the menu being served tomorrow night at the NFS dinner.
If you’re in Austin this weekend make sure you drop by the Better Food Through Open Data Standards panel tomorrow at 12:30pm to hear Anthony and a panel of experts discuss how recipe sites, restaurant menu wranglers, open government developers, urban agronomists, provenance geeks and food policy activists are collaborating on an interoperable standard.
