SXSW 2007 Post Mortem in Links

I didn’t get to do nearly all that I would’ve liked at SXSW 2007. I suppose it’s that way for everyone. I missed both Turbonegro shows. I missed all of Thurston Moore’s shows. I missed all of Tom Morello’s shows. I missed Bruce Sterling’s annual rant, although I can re-live that through the SXSW
. SXSW is also posting video from the conference. I didn’t see any films. I heard King of Kong was awesome.

Here’s a small sampling of some of the things that I’ve seen posted over the past week or so that I think are worth checking out.

The big controversy this week is the shutdown of several of the parties held outside the normal SXSW schedule. It’s been happening for years and has become its own little cottage industry. John Kelso wrote a column in today’s Statesman. Austinist has an open letter from the owners of Factory People about their encounter with
the fire marshals with a long comment thread and a post speculating about the death of the afterparty, but I can’t link it at the moment because they’re inaccessible for some reason (it appears Austinist had some issues over the weekend).

Louis Black does his own recap in an editorial in this week’s Austin Chronicle.

SXSW Baby has the dates for next year.
