BuzzFeed got weird in Austin last week.

Slurp-beys were served:

Fortunes were told via emojis...


A party was thrown with CW's iZombie!

6th St. was explored whilst wearing high-fashion tech accessories.

... and gave her own with her big, little talk on what BuzzFeed BFF is up to and the future of distributed media.
