Mecca in Texas -- a South by Southwest review

Once a year the faithful followers of heady discussion, creative collaboration and community convene in Austin, TX for the South by Southwest conference. This conference offers the plugged-in professional an opportunity to marinate her brains in rich juices of topics in business, content, design, convergence and beyond.
I arrived last Friday, March 10th when the New Media Venture Capital Conference brought together entrepreneurs in search of funding. That night the Four Seasons was host to the Texas eComm Ten Awards while the SXSW Interactive Festival Pre-Party gathered up some of the other early arrivers to get acquainted.
