President Obama sat down at The Long Center For Creative Arts in Austin on March 11 to open SXSW Interactive.
Speaking with Editor-In-Chief of the Texas Tribune Evan Smith, the President touched on subjects like voting online, voter disenfranchisement, Obama memes, and the hot topic on whether the U.S. government should be able search private citizens’ smartphones in criminal cases.
Obama is the first sitting president to ever grace the stage of a SXSW event. First Lady Michelle Obama will be the opening keynote speaker at SXSW Music on March 16. Aren’t they the coolest!?
