BASHH origins – August 2009 in Austin

Back in the day when BASHH was a bit smaller, we experimented to see how attendance levels would change based on location (an experiment that we took on for over a year). We learned that those of us that live up north loved it but those that live south were none too pleased (although they came anyhow).

In August 2009, we gathered in north Austin at the Iron Cactus who decided to have a live band which was a nice surprise (although we couldn’t hear each other), and the lead guy was pretty good. We learned that he was on Twitter, so we forced him to wear a nametag too. It was all in good fun. The Iron Cactus begged us to come back again (and who knows, maybe some day we will))!

It was a fun night; here’s a screenshot of the invitation (click for live invite):

Benn Rosales is the Founder and CEO of The American Genius (AG), national news network. Before AG, he founded one of the first digital media strategy firms in the nation has received the Statesman Texas Social Media Award and is an Inman Innovator Award winner. He has consulted for numerous startups (both early- and late-stage), and is well known for organizing the digital community through popular offline events. He does not venture into the spotlight often, rather he believes his biggest accomplishments are the talent he recruits and develops, so he gives all credit to those he's empowered.
