SXSW 2005 Panels I’m Going to

It’s mid-March, and that can only mean one thing — it's time for another fun trip to Austin for SXSW 2005. For those not aware, South by Southwest (more commonly known by its initials, SXSW) is a music, film and interactive festival in Austin, Texas; I’ll be attending the Interactive conference.

The interactive conference runs this Friday through Tuesday (March 11th-16th) and their schedule of panels is online. Here’re some of the panels which I’ll be attending:

Saturday March 12th

Sunday March 13th

Monday March 14th

Tuesday March 15th

  • 11:30 am — Notes From the Underground: The Rise of Remix Culture. I get a kick out of mashups — an art form where someone superimposes one song on top of another to form a brand new song — and I’m looking forward to seeing what they cover in this panel.

  • 2:30 pm — Accessibility Shoot-Out. In this panel, URLs are thrown into a hat and then accessibility experts look over the site and give advice. I’m concerned that I may not learn much new out of this one, but you never know.

So, those are the panels which I’ve penciled-in so far. SXSW is a great time every year and I can't wait to get to Austin!

    Sounds as if you have all the technical aspects of your trip planned out, but what about music and film? Are you seeing any bands or shows?

    Hi Mike! I just went to the Interactive panels — I didn’t have a pass for the Music or Film side of things. Not that it wasn’t tempting, but I can only be away from the office for so long ;).
