How do you SXSW attendees do it? We’d need a few clones of ourselves running around to catch everything we already know we want to see, plus new stuff we’ve never heard before. We’ve been feeling lonely with the slow news week since most people are in Austin, but next week will be just as slow since you’ll all need to recover from the insanity this week.

We’re still jealous, by the way. 🙂
