John Gruber does not seem impressed with sxsw either. “But the nebulous nature of art puts more emphasis on the need for speakers to add structure, clarity, and preparation to their presentations.” How do I not fall in love with that quote?
I did not know I was in such good company in sxsw disappointment. If so many people think this lowly about sxsw 2007 I would not be surprised if attendance drops next year. A conference can't run on parties alone.
