SXSW: The Latest in Food Applications

I spent the past four days at South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi)┬áconference, and my mind is jam packed with new information about our crazy connected online world. Thanks to friends at Whole Foods, I also spent part of the weekend at the Techmunch, an amazing conference for food bloggers. Those interested in hearing more about Techmunch should check out Natanya Anderson’s notes on her new blog, Social Feasting.
The panel I’ve decided to share with you all is one I attended yesterday, a SXSWi core conversation called “How Technology is …

Conference-goers interested in learning more about a specific feature could scan those codes, reading and saving the information to their smartphones.

Austin Overrated: No, you should NOT eat at that Austin institution

Like many locals, I get a bit angry when SXSW rolls around each year. Our city swells to the point of supersaturation, the traffic is horrendous, there are lines at restaurants we can usually get into easily, and those who work downtown (like me) are subjected to the sound of loud music and revelry while we toil away at our desks.

And while I get annoyed at some of the people who come here (see my friends Boots in the Oven’s posts on fashion at SXSW for examples), I still firmly …

24 Hour Eats in Austin During SXSW

Austin takes NYC’s place as “the city that never sleeps” for about ten days every year during SXSW. The three-in-one festival begins this Friday with SXSW film and interactive, followed by music on March 17 and through the weekend.
The activity is continuous but we all need to eat, right? Listed below are places you can grab a bite 24-hours-a-day — or at least into the wee hours of the morning.
24 Diner is the newest addition to the 24-hour diner scene in Austin, joining Magnolia and Kerbey Lane in the race …
