1. What year did SXSW Interactive debut as part of SXSW?

2. Local Austinite, Bruce Sterling, has participated in most, if not all, of the SXSWi festivals. He used to throw a closing party to the festival at his house, but it got too large in 2004 and he had to stop. After the party that year, he wrote about how much alcohol was consumed and was particularly frightened that one particular bottle of alcohol was completely drained. What was it?

    I think I may have it… *crosses fingers*.

    1. In 1995, film and multimedia were broken into separate entities. In 1998, the name of the event was officially changed from the SXSW Multimedia Festival to the SXSW Interactive Festival.

    2. “my God, they drank the lychee brandy. Somebody drank *all* the lychee brandy. That scares me.”

    You’ve got it. Congratulations! In retrospect, I probably should’ve worded that first question a little more clearly, but you covered it.

    Woohooo!! You don’t know me, but I SWEAR I’m worthy! I even set my Outlook reminder to be here at 10. Thank you! I was worried I wouldn’t get #1 because my answer had both dates, but thank you for giving it to me. This is the ONLY way I was going to get to see Heather Armstrong from Dooce. I’m about to turn inside out w/ joy right now.
