SXSW is this week! For those of you not familiar with SXSW, it’s a very cool “content” conference. It used to be pretty much just focused on music, but in recent years it’s also included film and “interactive” tracks. The Interactive track is the cool one – it’s all about techie web 2.0 stuff. Here’s a description from SXSW’s Interactive page – “Attracting digital creatives as well as visionary technology entrepreneurs, the SXSW Interactive Festival enables you to connect, discover and inspire your link to the cutting edge.” Translation = all the cool geeks will be there.
I can’t go to SXSW2007 this year (though I DID send my library’s web manager) – but I can certainly follow along via blogs, flickr, and videos! I didn’t want to add a bunch of tag searches to my normal feed reader, so to follow the conference, I’m using Netvibes and tags to track the conference – this screencast explains how I set up Netvibes to do this.
