When I set up my schedule for SXSW I set it up as a geek looking for new toys. But since I have been here, my schedule has morphed. I look at sessions as an academic doing research for their doctoral project. The overriding question is how does this talk help me in preparing for what comes next. I didn’t expect that, but as SXSW goes on I am changing sessions because I realize the one I originally wanted to attend will not add value to my conversation. While I may miss some of the “latest and greatest” here, my conversations are vastly richer because of my choices.
