We here at the City Paper still aren’t quite sure what to make of the name Silicon Harbor, the moniker for the Holy City’s emerging tech industry. Yeah, it’s catchy and all, but we’re just not sure the name is appropriate — at least, not right here, right now. But in a few years, it could be. If the day arrives when Wired regularly refers to Charleston as Silicon Harbor, then the folks behind this week’s Dig South Interactive Festival will surely deserve some of the credit for getting the Holy City on the bitmap map. A unique mix of seminars, parties, expo vendors, and some really kick-ass live music, Dig South is something that the Holy City has never seen before. If this is what the future looks like, then bring it on.
