Remember how I said I had a mixed bag at SXSW this year? Sarah, into whom I bumped once every day, reliably, had a similar experience, and we came up with a few things that could be improved about the conference:
- note the intended audience for the panels. Newcomers or old hands? Will the topic be broadly covered, or will it drill down into details?
- for the web site:
-- it's a HUGE site. And there's no search. No search!!! How can this be?
-- it's great that the panelists are listed on the panel pages - but why aren't the panels listed on the panelists' pages? If you are interested in a particular speaker, there's really no easy way to find out when and where they're speaking. Sheee-eeeeesh.
-- and why is the coverage (podcasts from the sessions, for example) in a different section, and not added to the panel listing, so you can find it easily?????
