Observations and Interactions of a first time SXSW-er

Posted by on Mar 19, 2009 in Events, networking, Social

It was a great conference for a first timer and I actually had a little anxiety about going to the event. There was so much information being presented it seemed impossible to check it all out.

It was mentally stimulating to be involved in so many break out sessions with individuals from a diversity of online media backgrounds.

In a normal day, I manage my time pretty well. I multi-task endlessly.
