SXSW is Over But the Pictures Live On
Having returned and recovered from SXSW last week, it's time to share some pictures from the week. If you have any interest in the festival which focuses on interactive, film and music, you've probably already read everything there is out there about the show. And if you've missed anything, all one has to do is entered SXSW or SXSW2008 into Google for thousands of results.
We will say one thing about the show though. To marketers and agencies in the interactive space, you need to go to this conference. And you are in the interactive space, aren't you? It's unlike any ad conference out there and it covers far more than most other conferences, mostly because it's not just about advertising. But, that's a good thing. The show gigs deep into social media, AJAX, rich media, blogging, vlogging, mobile marketing, online privacy issues, the relevance of logos, gaming, and hundreds of other topics. Make plans now to go next year. Seriously.
OK, on to the fluff. We saw Helen Hunt, Moby, Billy Bob Thornton and Mark Cuban to mention a few of the big names that make it to the festival. In addition to the famous, there were the internet famous and then just regular people who are cool, smart and fun to talk to. Check it all out here.
