We are traveling way before the roosters are up so that we arrive in time not to miss any session on the opening day. This post is a public service announcement[PSA] about things to do or places to go to when I take the stage at Jacob Javits Center 1A06 at 3.45 p.m on Tuesday May 24th. Thirsty for knowledge ? Here are the sessions I would attend if I was not speaking : SXSW4Japan: A Case Study in Real Time, Iterative Development, Crisis Response, Crowd Sourcing and Social Good. I was there at SXSW to see this happen and also interviewed Leigh Durst and Deb NG in this Video http://bit.ly/lVhylh .
