Leaping Into SXSW Interactive

An aperitif to kick things off

Leaping Into SXSW Interactive

Five days, hundreds of panels and parties and gadgets galore, and geek love abounding ... and we could only cover a smattering. (And we're already kicking ourselves – how did we manage to gloss over Monday Keynote Speaker Frank Warren, founder of the hugely addictive, hugely heartfelt PostSecret project, www.postsecret.blogspot.com?) So call our coverage an aperitif: just a little something to get the party started.
