Stephen Colman’s A to Z of SXSW
Partly looking back at SXSW 2011, but also chock full of info for this year’s conference, Stephen Colman has went for the tradition A-Z list to go through his experiences of Austin as a first time attendee last year.
P is for… Platinum Badge
The Platinum Badge – The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to attend every motherfu*king session on the program, accept no substitutes.
This is your pass to everything on the program: All of Interactive, Film, and Music. All the parties. All of it. Be careful though, that’s up to $1395 of badge you’re causally wearing on a lanyard around your neck. If you lose it, it will not be replaced. Treat it like gold (or platinum I guess).
Yes, he managed something for X, but there’s a nice mix of stuff in here.
