Gov20 at SxSW

I’ll be leaving today for Austin, TX, and this year’s South by Southwest Interactive Festival.

As with most years, I’ve completely overbooked myself, but this is the double-edge sword of interesting conferences: there is more to do and see and hear than two eyes, two ears, and one brain can take in. I do plan to tweet quite extensively from the conference (follow @GBYehuda if you want to read about it [or unfollow if you don’t!]) and you can see my schedule here.

Some of the sessions I’m particularly excited about (though there is no way I can get to all of them):
