SXSW Tweeps


A collaboration place for all of the Twitterbuds coming to SxSW in 2009! 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.


The Nuclear Tacos event is open to everyone, and we will have a Tweetup there. This event will be held on Monday evening from 6 - 9 pm, with live music, adult refreshments, and the HOTTEST tacos you've ever wrapped your mouth around, guaranteed!

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? (Because you're going to be walking at least 10 miles a day) Unless you're liveblogging or really have a need for a laptop, it becomes just one more thing to lug around, and the available electrical outlets get very crowded. If you have Web access from your cell phone/PDA, it might be less hassle for you.
    • Don't forget the "side speakers" like interviews in the SX Studio in the exhibit hall, the new Core Conversations sessions and book readings/speakers in the Adobe Day Stage Cafe.
    • Use SCHED: SXSW 2009 to schedule your events. It is up and running, but check back for updates as not all sessions are up, and more parties and events are in the works.
    • Check Upcoming to keep up with the tons of evening social activities.
    • If you blog from there, be aware that the pos system WiFi absolutely groans under the load, plus available power outlets are very popular/crowded. A good place to blog from is the BlogHaus.
    • 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: decent BBQ near the Convention Center. Look no further than Iron Works BBQ at 100 Red River for counter service, Stubb's BBQ on Red River for generous portions, or venture further to either Green Mesquite BBQ or Uncle Billy's Brew & Que just south of the river on Barton Springs Road.
    • You may find yourself texting a lot more during the conference; check your service plan and upgrade if needed. 
    • Follow @SXSWi on Twitter!
    • There are two WiFi Networks, each on a different frequency band. One is identified by SXSW2008 and the other SXSW2008 5GHz. The SXSW2008 5 GHz network is the higher performance network with more channels and faster speeds. If a WiFi device sees the SXSW2008 5 GHz network please select it. These are the only official networks for internet access at the Austin Convention Center. Pacquiao Vs Mosley
    • Why SXSWi is like visiting Walt Disney World from @SheilaS and SXSWi cheat sheet suggestions from @NicoleSimon
    • SXSWi coverage in the local indie Austin Chronicle, also a major conference sponsor.
    • March 7th and 8th is also BarCamp Austin III.
    • Local beer so you don't look unimaginative ordering the same old Bud Light: REAL local craft beer available from right here in Austin (or nearby Blanco) would be Independence Brewing, Real Ale, (512) Brewing or Live Oak Brewing Company.
    • The most creative safe ride home/after-party ever is the RVIPLounge. Follow us on twitter: @RVIPLounge--we will be driving 6pm-4am every night (and we have a full bar and karaoke on board!) If you hail us, we'll very likely pull over, pour you a drink, and let you sing us a song while we drive you home. bamboo sheets
