SXSWhat's up, y’all?!?

Overwhelmed, underwhelmed, or you just want to be at the right places at the right time? I’m no pro when it comes to SXSW but I have learned over the years that you do not need a badge or wristband to be “cool” at SXSW. If anything, it’s much hipper going the unofficial route (and cheaper).  And let's face it, when you are catching the same Jay-Z show as your pal who forked out almost $2,000 for a platinum badge, you come out on top!

Here are my top sites, apps, people to follow on Twitter/Facebook and #hashtags.
