I'm headed down to SxSW on the 8th.  I imagine many of you will be down there as well.  It's my first trip down, but It would be great to meet up with some of you down there.   Let me know if anyone is free to grab a drink or we can set up a time for as many people as possible to come hang out.

You figure out which parties you're going to yet? There are so many to choose from! I'm there Fri-Sun for Interactive.

Mark--- I got into this world because of Startup Weekend which was sponsored by Startup America.  Unfortunately I don't have a SxSW ticket.  If anyone has an extra that they aren't going to use, I'd love to grab or barter for it.  Presently I can't afford the 1100 or so bucks it is to pay for the ticket! 

So as many events as people have for non badge holders would be awesome!

Got it. Think most of the events above are outside of the event. In fact, you'll have no shortage of networking events and activities outside of the conference; It's where I spend most of my time. Check those out, including the one posted individually in discussions to get the most out of SXSW. Best success. Cheers! silva

I'll be there too.

If you don't want to manually rsvp for all the parties, check out (I'm not affiliated in any way).  Do512 is a good resource too.

I suggest the free Will Call:

I'll be around and more than willing to meet up. I'm flying by the seat of my pants so to speak because I soon as you plan on going to something, a better opportunity pops up. 

My advice would be to hang out in the bars, watch twitter and don't be afraid to talk to people.

Find me on twitter if you want to meet up: @alwaysunday
