The South By Southwest media and music conference, aka SXSW, is getting a reputation for using the latest technology to enhance the experience for attendees. This year, according to this Wired article, the technology was Sched.org, a scheduling application that sounds like a godsend for meetings. From the article:
- The login is simple -- just pick a user name and password and Sched.org sets up your account. Each day's festival events are laid out in their own tab. Click on a tab to browse the events and pick which panel, film or music show you want to attend. One click adds the item to a personalized page with a unique URL, which can be bookmarked on a mobile device (it looks great on an iPhone) or printed out. You can also see who is attending which event, and sort the events by popularity.
I have got to check this out for myself!
