BRINGING DAC TO AUSTIN

You may think Austin, the live music capital of the world, was built on rock 'n' roll, but the Texas capital may actually favor electronica. Austin adopted the nickname "the Silicon Hills" in the 1990s. Austin's unique tech industry includes an array of established computer and semiconductor companies, as well as a growing number of eager Internet and social media startups.
