Launched with the best of the music, film, and tech industries at heart, SXSW has exploded into a mid-March block party for the people. Austin's signature party has so much to do in so little time, it can drive you to the bottle, but that's what all the free drinks are about. If you just relax, take a moment to scour and mark your own personal schedule, and try not to let that overwhelming feeling that you're missing something awesome (and you probably are) win, you will have the time of your life. So schmooze, booze, and don't worry, be happy, because there's always next year.
