I think I’ve mentioned it in one of my previous SXSWi posts, but it’s tricky figuring out which talks to go to at a big event like this. You do your best, and hope you don’t pick too many clinkers. I was excited about this particular talk about Analog — despite my love of almost all things digital, I’m aRead more
Yes, I know it’s been over for a few weeks now, but I still have some South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi) notes about some interesting stuff that I encountered there that I would like to share with you all, so I hope you don’t mind.

South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi)–my first foray into trade show/events in a while
