If you’re headed to South by Southwest Interactive this weekend, as I am, there’s a very good chance that you’re complaining about it. It’s too big and corporate.

There are some lessons for us all to learn about confronting the inconveniences of representing a brand in a chaotic space. (And why not learn these things when there are open bars everywhere?)
