SXSW Panels I’m Thinking of Attending

SXSW Panels I’m Thinking of Attending

I just went through the panel list for SXSW and again have had a hard time picking just one panel to go to. In general, I’m being drawn to the panels about collaboration, identity (which includes branding), networking, and making things. To distill it down even more, these seem to be largely the panels about the psychology of our daily experience, and what people are doing to transform it.

I’m really behind on prepping for the festival, but I grow more and more excited!!!
