SXSW Overflow and the Power of IRL

SXSW Overflow and the Power of IRL

As this is my first SXSW Interactive, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  You can spend all day looking at guides on SXSW, tips for newbies, and my.sxsw, watch #sxsw and the like.  In short, this is all overflow.  It’s overwhelming when you basically have all of Twitter in your living room.   😉

Once you jump into the flow, you go with it and see where it takes you.  I spent the time meeting all sorts of friends old and new: @RCSAustin, @dberkowitz, @tamar @catone @corvida @nickcobb @explicitmemory @rizoh and many many more.  It is really an amazing feeling to finally meet people that you have chatted online with for a long time.  Here’s a brief recap in pics:
