  • The essence of SXSW
The best stories are told in fragments. The stories of SXSW are no different.

In the leftover wristbands, fast food wrappers, and photos strewn across the internet, the laptop, and the phone, a complete story emerges between the lines. Today after cleaning out the car (ewww, did I really eat Burger King, and who hid these coffee cups under my seats?), unpacking bags of schwag, and collecting all the photos hiding in every digital medium possible, perhaps another version of my own SXSW story, one between the shows.

We binged, now it's time to purge.

So hopefully in the images will paint a portrait of life before, during and after SXSW. Enjoy these details of the larger photograph that was SXSW 2010:
