The South by Southwest Interactive conference is gearing up. It’s one of the biggest events of the year for anyone working in interactive media, including this little thing we call the Web.
Mozilla will be there, at sessions and events, so if you’re going, please look for us. Also, check out Tantek’s 2011 SXSW Packing and Check List and SXSW 101 and Additional Tips.

Throughout the conference, Jay Patel and I will be wandering around showing demos of open web technologies from Web O’ Wonder and Mozilla Demo Studio. Follow @mozhacks or #mdnsxsw to find us, and maybe pick up some Mozilla Developer Network swag.
