SXSW is upon us and I’m already twitching in excitement.
OK, it might be all the coffee I’ve had lately. Or my anxiety. Or my ADD.
I’ve spent the past few weeks planning for my Core Conversation with Anna Tauzin, so scheduling and planning for anything else fell down to this week.
I’ll probably continue to harass you all about the Core Conversaton until it’s over, so sorry in advance (kinda). We have a blog for it, which you should check out, and see us in action Tuesday, March 15 at 11 a.m.
Tools to get you organized
The good thing about being a frazzled procrastinator nowadays are all the helpful apps and websites around to get you organized.
I’ve been using SCHED to create my calendar for each day. I think it’s safe to say my schedule is set.
I also made sure to download a few apps onto my iPhone for the fest. ReadWriteWeb has a great article on five apps you should download.
Beluga and Hashable look like they will be really helpful. Hurricane Party looks like a party. Let’s just hope the wireless networks hold up. AT&T says they will boost the network in anticipation of the SXSW crowds.
So if you are heading out tomorrow to the first day of SXSW, don’t forget to pack a few things. This is what I won’t leave home without:
Flip video camera
Noms such as a granola bar and peanut butter sandwich
water bottle (reusable – respect the environment, yo)
chanclas (that’s flip flops for your non-Spanish speakers)
a light jacket or sweater
Film and Music
Tiny baby Jesus. There’s still film and music to stress about! I’ll post about that soon. There will be plenty to watch and see.
