Doesn’t quite feel like it was less than a week ago that SXSW in Austin, Texas ended.
One of the best 10 day festivals of Interactive, Film and Music, incorporating seminars, screenings, performances and some of the best collisions of the people working in social media and every form of entertainment today.
We spent a full term there, including speechifying in the interactive portion, and photographing the entire festival event from every angle.
Every night at about 2:00 AM, the media cards were downloaded, edited and, with minor tweakage in Lightroom, sent off to 4 different outlets for usage/publication.
One of our home team companies, Nikon, was there with a sweet twitter/online photo/video setup via yfrog.com as one of our recipients of our photo files.
Not just us, of course, but some of the most popular bloggers/tweeters out there were armed with Nikon gear to capture the festival from their unique perspectives.
Seriously, you would have to be cloned 10 times to see a good portion of the stuff available to you.

And the best part was that not only was that group uploading materials, but anyone could do it. And still can.
If you were there, upload and share.

Of course Nikon fave, iJustine was there.
It wasn’t speakers and music either. Erik Estrada, “Ponch” from C.H.I.P.s showed up promoting hearing check-ups for the rockers. Say what?
We dig that Nikon came out to this very cool, very relevant event and saw the opportunity to be at the crux of people sharing all of their photos AND vids with everyone.
Check out their page and you’ll get a great memory of the event you were either at, OR will be attending next year.
You will be there next year, right?
