U.S. President Barack Obama called on creative thinkers, entrepreneurs and artists to use their talents and abilities to "turn change into a force for good" at a time when so many are fearful of change. The White House hosted the first "South by South Lawn" (SXSL) Monday, transforming the grounds into a festival celebrating the spirit of innovation with musical performances, art displays, film viewings and discussions on major issues of the day.
