So, I got to the airport this morning, Southwest’s computers were down. Luckily, after a half hour, I was able to check in. Wait, did I got to South By Southwest… BY SOUTHWEST? I guess I did.

So, I arrived before checkin time. I eventually checked in and had to run immediately to the Convention Center. That’s a $25 cab ride, so I’m going to find an alternate route (like this) since I can’t pay that out ten times over the next few days. Of course, the cab ride took forever and the line inside was ridiculous, so I got to the first panel that I wanted to see a bit late. However, I got in. So, here are my first notes:

How to Rawk SXSW

This was really the only panel of the day. It will be interesting to see what goes on tonight.

Update: Liz Henry took better notes than I (and Tantek just stole her Twitter to use as advice).

Update: Vanessa took some good notes as well.

Update: Stef Lewandowski has notes and some great photos.

Update: Tantek’s page that he projected.

Update: The posted coverage.
