SXSW coverage

The SXSW festival was last week, and if you haven't heard of it before, and you are a blogger, time to do a little reading.

The SXSW INTERACTIVE FESTIVAL brings together uber-geeks, tech entrepreneurs, and digital innovators from around the world for four days of keynote speeches, Trade Show, panels, parties and assorted evening fun. Now in its thirteenth year, this is the event where the web's most creative minds share their ideas about how interactive technology will shape our future.
How ... interactive technology .. will shape .. our future. Sounds pretty weighty - and important. What I imagine is that it is a pretty significant event with some pretty significant people, all that are involved in this convergence of media, the web, and relationships. I think you would agree that changes in the Web in the past few years have made a pretty big impact on our culture.

At about the same time that I had been thinking it would be good to listen/watch some of this coverage, Mark over at Posting Threads posted that we should watch the video about Craig Newmark of craigslist and Jimmy Wales of wikipedia talking about the communities theyƂ?ve help build.
