NamSor API will be featured today at SXSW ‘on stage’, so if you are in Austin: don’t miss Samir and Arnaud’s inspiring talk on ‘TechDiasporas: African and Asian Startups Fuel‘ and the launch of #DIASruption web site.

For the occasion, we’ve estimated the gender gap among SXSW Interactive speakers and we can see positive progress since 1994, when only 14% speakers were women – till last year SXSW edition when over 35% speakers were women.
