SXSW in 140 characters - Day 2

This is a summary of my SXSW experience in 140 character bites with pictures...

About to explore Austin. Wow. Location based services SERIOUSLY make sense here. No wonder FourSquare/GoWalla got funding.

Location based services and marketing suddenly make a lot of sense. http://bit.ly/dbc7vW

These location based services were pretty amazing. The combination of relevancy and immediate access to crowdsourced information is powerful. The images below are from GoWalla and FourSquare - the two front runners in the location based service space.


Ah. Stopped in on my first location based offer and store was clueless. Fulfilment!! http://twitpic.com/17rzn9


Had my first US begging experience. Lady stopped me on the bridge asking for change. Tough world for all at the mo it seems.

Lovely evening walk down the Austin river http://twitpic.com/17srsy
