SXSW Interactive 2012 – Day 5

March 24, 2012 |

2 parties – 2 panels – 1 lounge – 1 band – 1 DJ – Catch A Chevy – Connected Lunch – The Big Goodbye

Starting the day at panels, but waiting for the city bus does take some patience.  It makes me a little late for the Spotify panel.

Panel 1 – The Future of Music Consumption
