It's happening right now. South-by-Southwest 2011 started up in Austin. And, as we pointed out earlier, one does not simply walk into SXSW. There's a screaming sea of Twitter and Facebook updates, fast-posting Redditors and discarded Red Bull cans. What are we talking about? Oh, you already know. It's South-by-Southwest Interactive.
So, we have another game for you: SXSW Interactive Bingo. SXSWi, if you're unaware, is stacked with panels dedicated to the ever-changing nature of social media. SXSWi goers will overhear phrases like "content is still king," and "AOL is dead," and see self-righteous Foursquare mayors: we turned it into a game.
As we mentioned in our SXSW Bingo music edition, we want you to get into it: Print our SXSW bingo cards out (download all four cards in full size after the jump!), take them with you into
Mordor SXSW, and keep an eye out for the various things we want you to spot. Bring your camera with you, snap a photo of one of our squares in the real world and then post it the comments. If it's what we're looking for, we'll put it in one of our slideshows recapping SXSW. Good luck.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
