The ratings for SXSW panels are out. Here’s the list. I’m happy that “Cluetrain: Seven Years Later” and “Election 2008: Revenge of the Blogs” got good marks. SXSW is my favorite road-trip. The right mix of words, flesh, bustle, C2H6O, sleep deprivation, music and blue sky turn a random crowd into a SXSW swarm. By the second night, some kind of group consciousness kicks in and the conversation and fun bump up a notch into tribal joy.
