When Ben Parr, web phenomenon, notorious technology journalist, energetic energy bubble, web entrepreneur and world changer on a mission announced his goodbyes as the editor-at-large of Mashable , everyone wanted to know what he would do. Well, I met Ben Parr, and we will still have to wait a bit. Ben is working on a start-up that is currently still in deep stealth mode, but that will be announced soon.
While coding the beejeezes every day for the secret project, Ben completed miraculously his first sci-fi thriller Desel. Indeed, sleep is overrated and for the weak.
Parr comes to SxSW to meet people, less to meet technologies: “It is great to meet people, to meet smart people that bring something to the table. I love to interact with the SXSW crowd: visitors from different locations, different backgrounds, and different interests. The richness is in human encounters, rather than in new technologies.”
Ben Parr is a man on a mission. A book to promote, a start-up to launch. A world to save.
