So....for those of you who aren't here, you may want to visit the site to get a copy of the sessions by strand and follow the tweets based on sessions you would attend. Tweetdeck will be VERY handy!
Update: The online schedule doesn't make the hashtag appear! Dang! So it will take some trial & error. May have to follow just #sxsw and search for mention of a speaker or topic to get the #sx_____ hash to follow on topic.
You can tweet me and I will look up your presentation in a session if you want for the hash tag. You can send me the presenter's name and I can check the index. I will try!!!
