One of the things I like about SXSW is that it’s a time to just think about new ideas without necessarily trying to relate them directly to a particular work project. When I take notes, I write down interesting quotes or concepts that the speakers are presenting, but I also intersperse my own opinions. It’s important to capture ideas at the time they spark, and today there were enough to fill a book. Instead of summarizing the day I will take some of the themes and work through them in later posts this week.
I should at least note that it was great to hear Joe Trippi speak, though. Ryan posted some photos from that session and the MoveOn.org keynote.
