The south by southwest interactive festival brings together uber-geeks, tech entrepreneurs, and digital innovators from around the world for four days of keynote speeches, Trade Show, panels, parties and assorted evening fun. Now in its thirteenth year, this is the event where the web's most creative minds share their ideas about how interactive technology will shape our future.

I agree completely. Truly one of my top favorite events of all year.
Another year! another awsome South by Nothwest party at the Iron Cactus...

flyers just showed up in the mail! Registered. Big penalties for transferring registrations/no refunds whatsoever.

Wooot.Packing lots of lipstick.
Someone find me a way to attend FOC, and I'll go ;)
How come there are so many going to Interactive but not staying for Music???
jobs, life, etc.
According to the sales and marketing pdf, the music festival is twice as big as the interactive.. (10,000 attendees vs 5,000)
But of course on upcoming.org, the perspective is a little different..
Oh yeah. And we're ready to get the party started:
cannot wait. my fav conference!!

Here are the details:

I'm flying out at 10:15h on Friday morning from Heathrow. Give me a shout if you're on the same flight so we can start the fun and games at the airport!
This will be my first year attending the interactive part or any of it for that matter. I'm driving down from Dallas. Don't know a single person going so it ought to be interesting.
This is my second SXSW. I'll be there with coworkers and members of Refresh!Austin
Paul, is there a way to list this as an all day event? 10 AM to 5 PM hardly covers it; plus the phone sync is dirty now. TIA.
The Interactive Playpen is back this year. Between panels come join the block party.
cookiecrook: Good point. I changed it.
The Viddler team is trying to meet as many vloggers and artists as possible. Introduce yourself beforehand and guarantee yourself a free Viddler.com t-shirt.
Anyone flying out from Newark on the 9th?
This is my 10th! My 10th SXSW. Damn.
So which parties should we attend?
It's my first time to SXSW ! I'm quite nervous ! I don't want to miss a thing, if you have any suggestions - I'll have to made hard choices I think.
Well tomorrow is the day. Look forward to networking and meeting a few fellow designers / ui experts:)
See y'all there. Oh, sorry, am I allowed to use that contraction without being a local?
woot! anyone staying at the La Quinta - Oltorf? email me at [email protected]
If you, like me, pick your panels as much by speaker as by topic and have found it difficult to do that on the official sxsw.com site, check it out: a searchable schedule for SXSWi 2007.
I am so there. For those of you who have not attended before I highly recommend going. Hope to see you there!
