SXSW Interactive starts later this week (March 12-16), which means the final round of Das Keyboard’s Ultimate Typing Championship is finally here. Our two finalists, Sean Wrona and Nate Bowen, will be competing in-person at the event on Sunday March 14 for a chance to claim bragging rights as the country’s first UTC champion. Oh, and that $2,000 grand prize isn’t so bad either. Sean and Nate are truly among the country’s typing elite, and we look forward to their final keyboard face-off. Speaking of which … have you noticed that they’re both from New York? That’s why we’re dubbing our first UTC Finals as “The Lone Star State’s Empire State Showdown.

If you happen to be attending SXSW Interactive, be sure to stop by Das Keyboard’s booth — #221,320. We’ll be offering 25% off and free shipping on our keyboards for any orders placed at our booth during the event. If you can type fast, you also may be able to win a keyboard. We’ll be conducting daily typing contests at our booth, and will be giving away Model S Keyboards to two individuals each day who log the fastest typing speeds.

See you at SXSW Interactive … and good luck Sean and Nate!
