SXSW – Addieu makes it easy to connect on all social networks with people you meet

March 9, 2011

Yes, I’m already in Austin, TX for SXSW interactive 2011 and extremely excited about conference this year while feeling a bit overwhelmed at the same time. Prior to SXSW I’ve been thinking about my blog/content strategy and/or how I plan to cover the event. This is my third year attending SXSW and the first two years I did a lot of podcasting, interviewing, live streaming and live blogging sessions but for 2011 I think I”m going to have a simpler approach and write about various people and startups I meet during the conference.

As for day one, I ran into an old friend Damien Basile @DB on twitter who just launched his new startup with Brian Papa, called Addieu.

Addieu is an all-in-one solution to help you avoid business card overdose. It does this by allowing you to exchange contact information and connect you & the person you’re meeting on all your social networks at once, quickly, easily & reliably.

After hearing the Addieu pitch from DB I downloaded the app and now my SXSW plan is to use Addieu to exchange contact information. If you have an iPhone you can download Addieu here [iTunes] link.
