GUNNAR supports the BackPlane #managersHACK at SXSWi

managersHACK with GUNNARS

On March 11th 2012 during SXSW Interactive in Austin, the BackPlane hosted a unique tech/music event called the managersHACK – a hackathon involving 200 hackers presenting platforms, applications and technologies to some of the top managers in the music industry including Troy Carter, Scooter Braun and Jay Brown. It was livestreamed by R to Z Studios, Randi Zuckerberg’s new social media firm, and hosted by Randi Zuckerberg who gave the play by play commentary.

GUNNAR Optiks was proud to be on site, providing all the hackers with GUNNAR eyewear to help reduce eyestrain during the marathon hacking event.
