I’ve spent a lot of time on the internet this week, but I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about IRL events.

今天,三年来第一次,South by Southwest在奥斯汀开始。会议和节日会吸引来自世界各地的数千人for the first big gathering many have attended since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.

I’m excitedbut also nervous—I haven’t been around large crowds for a while, and mysocial staminais still not what it was pre-pandemic. But I’m going to try and see as much as I can.

连同我的几个colleagues, I’ll be covering SXSW for the Daily Dot—writing aboutfilms,会谈, and其他事件that I think will be of interest to our readers. (那是你!)

This weekend, look out for我们的特殊SXSW通讯,我们将告诉你最多的地方interesting and weird things we saw.

What should you expect? This year, the conference isheavy on NFTs and cryptodiscussions. If you aren’t interested in NFTs, that’s OK.

我们也会covering the biggest premieresat the film festival—includingEverything Everywhere All at Once巨大的人才的难以忍受的重量. Next week, we’ll dive into the music portion of the festival.

总的来说,我们想回答这个问题:Why do we care about this还大事发生了很多噪音,我们的目标是告诉你what you need to know.

This week, after picking up my badge at the Austin Convention Center, I stopped by the merch counter. It was filled with merch that was标有三年不同: 2020, 2021, and 2022.

2020年,SXSW是canceleddays before. In 2021, the conference and festivals wereonline-only. This year,it’s on.

Are in-person events still a relevant part of our culture?We’re about to find out.

Look out for our coveragestarting today, and, if you’re feeling nostalgic like me, take a stroll down memory lane by reading our coverage in 2019. I attended many events that year, but my favorite part is stillmeeting Gritty.
