1st Day SXSW Wrap-Up
I have to start out by thanking Cindy Royal for giving us the chance to cover something as cutting edge as SXSW Interactive. The event was my first real press-like event to cover and it turned out to be a great learning experience. The Onion panel was definitely the highlight of the days events. I had heard about The Onion previously, but I have never really paid much attention to it. They take fake news to the nth degree, including one video that included some pretty hard core pornography. They definitely are unafraid to push the envelope, and have some great videos that I embedded in my blog post about the panel. I'm really looking forward to going back this Monday.
