SXSW was awesome and I can’t imagine it being any better, which exceptions noted below…
I didn’t bother with day-to-day updates. There are plenty of those to go around. While I do have some pics, you’ll find a whole lot of those on Flickr.
For me, it was about getting the chance to meet and hang out with a lot of people I’ve followed for a while online and have a great deal of admiration for. If you are in web design or web development at all, you should attempt to make it next year.
The key to having the best time at SXSW is to be social. While there are a few great panels, most could be better. It’s at the parties and social events and bars where you’ll get the most out of the entire experience.
The exception mentioned above was my night out with Garrett Dimon, Dan Rubin and Matthew Oliphant who’s evening just went from about as good as it could get, to almost as bad as it could. Check out his recap of the evening.
Regardless, it was an incredible time. I’m now energized to get back to work and looking forward to SXSW 2007 already.
