Attendees of the the Westworld panel at SXSW got a surprise visit from Elon Musk.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO used the panel to not only inspire a new generation on space exploration, but also drop two epic highlight reels of the Falcon Heavy rocket launch that carried Starman riding in a Tesla Roadster into deep space.

“Life cannot just be about solving one miserable problem after another,” Musk said. “That cannot be the only thing. There need to be things that inspire you, that make you glad to wake up in the morning and be part of humanity.” Read more…

SXSW threatens to narc musicians out to immigration authorities if they play unauthorized gigs

Evan Greer writes, “SXSW is one of the most popular music festivals in the US. It was just revealed that they are actively threatening bands from outside the US with “immediate deportation’ and immigration investigations if they perform at ‘unofficial’ events during the festival. At a time when immigrants are under attack, this policy is all the more chilling.
