You could feel it in the air. The world had changed.

It wasn't that the web had gotten less important, in fact, very much the opposite. The web was, until the day before yesterday, a series of pages that could be viewed on your computer. Now it had somehow broken free of its bonds and sprung to life.

SXSW's Next Big Thing Summed Up in One Word: 'Us'

Every time I come back from the SXSW Interactive conference, I get asked the same thing: "So what's the next big thing?" There seems to be this artificial pressure to "discover" the next Twitter. The next Foursquare.

SXSW: Thinking Beyond Publishing to Storytelling

In PW’s first trip to SXSW, we came to the Interactive portion of the days-long event in Austin wondering how best to tackle a show featuring an endless stream of panels, talks, and parties.
