I'd love an excuse to go to South-by, but seems like the higher ed connection is rather thin. Any suggestions on how I can justify such a trip?
Not going but if I was I would not miss Pinata Protest on March 18.
I'll be there!
I'm starting a twitter list of higher education/marketing folks who will be there
My team - heck, most of my area - goes to SXSW every year. Helps that we're Austin based, of course, so the expense is minimal.
While you may not be able to sell it as high ed related, it's hard to pass up the non-stop blast of news, info, ideas, and energy focused on the interactive world.
My team is always exhausted physically and re-charged professionally afterward.
Do get the early bird rate if you can.
I'll be there.

Cynde: My colleague Chris Latham (@lathamdesign) and I (@nyleva) will be there, and I'm sure many other University of Texas at Austin Web staff are attending. A higher ed tweet-up sounds great!
Chris and I are leading a core conversation on "Communicating on the Web During a Crisis." http://bit.ly/ecJLQ2 We'd love to meet up with you there.
Liz, thanks for creating your SXSWi Twitter list. Very helpful to find/connect with other higher ed folks.
