I came back from the hectic SXSW Interactive a few days ago and have now caught up on sleep. I learned quite a bit from the panels and have some new ideas, some of which I’ll mention here in the near future.
It was also a rare chance to meet and talk with some people in the industry. Here’s a big list of nearly everyone I met: Jeremy Dunck, Simon Willison, Yvonne Adams, Nick Bradbury, Scott Johnson, Betsy Devine, Jonas Luster, Eric Meyer, Nick Finck, James Craig, Sam Ruby, George Kelly Jr., Matt Haughey, Anil Dash, Adam Keys, Alex Russell, Jason Fried, D. Keith Robinson, Mike Wasylik, Jason Calacanis, Brian Alvey, Rannie Turingan, Ryan Gantz, Matt Mullenweg, Molly Holzschlag, Tantek Çelik, Scott Andrew, Kevin Smokler, Anitra Pavka. I know I met at least a few others, and I apologize for this incomplete list. Let me know if I missed you.
As a newcomer to SXSW, I want to thank everyone who made me feel welcome and allowed me to participate in some inspiring, mind-broadening, and entertaining conversations and meals. I’ll definitely be there next year and hope to see all of you again.
