SXSW Tweeps


A collaboration place for all of the Twitterbuds coming to SxSW in 2008! Let us know who you are, what your twitter name is, where you're staying and how to get ahold of you. We definitely need to get a drink or two together!


PASSWORD: twitter


A HUGE thank you and to @DustyReagan & @khaynes for straightening up the SxSW wiki and making it SING! @DustyReagan, you ROCK!



PLEASE NOTE: There is an Austin Tweeps page specifically for Austin people who will be attending SxSW. Many of us are willing to act as local resources.



New event for Monday night, cosponsored by Federated Media and Dell, plus Bulldog Solutions, The Conversation Group, and Social Media Club Austin-- featuring Shel Israel, Robert Scoble, Jeremiah Owyang, Charlene Li, Joseph Jaffe, Mack Collier, Chris Heuer and Lionel Menchaca. The event is free, but you must register here: An evening of conversation starters. -- posted by Connie Reece


SXSW Tweetup is in the works!


SXSW conference tips and tricks for a great conference experience - put your best tips here:


    • Upload your own badge photo before you arrive
    • Search the Registrant's Directory to find other people who are attending.
    • Leave your laptop in the hotel room. Really?? Can you elaborate why?
    • Don't forget the "side speakers" like interviews in the exhibit hall and the new Core Conversations sessions.
    • Check Upcoming.org to keep up with the tons of evening social activities.
    • If you blog from there, be aware that the WiFi absolutely groans under the load, plus available power outlets are very popular/crowded.
    • Want to get a run in during the conference? There's a new Facebook group: SXSW Runners.
    • A fun unofficial blog for keeping up with the news is SXSW Baby! If you're looking for transport/lodging, see their Ride/Room Share Board. Their forum also has a link to the audio for the 2007 \"How to Rawk SXSW\" panel, in case you don't want to wait to attend the 2008 version in person.
    • The really important info: great BBQ near the Convention Center. Look no further than Iron Works BBQ at 100 Red River.
    • You may find yourself texting a lot more during the conference; check your service plan and upgrade if needed.
