Bring a sharpie, says Lanyrd’s Sophie Barrett

The Baby! spoke to Lanyard’s founders last year in Brush Square, and we’ve been watching the progress that Simon and Nat have made with their social directory software (it’s impressive, and you should  check it out before March). They’re coming back to SXSW for 2012 with more people from their team including Sophie Barrett, who’s put together some tips from her first timers experience last year:

Take lots of business cards with you, and keep a fine Sharpie handy so you can note down important information on the back of each one you take. You’re likely to meet lots of people and forget what conversations you had, so little reminders can make all the difference.

More hints, and links, over on the Lanyrd blog (and thanks to Sophie for linking through to us). And if you want to keep an eye on Lanyrd, they have a dedicated twitter feed for Austin… @LanyrdSXSW.
