There's also an official meetup on Friday at 2PM on the sxsw schedule
I'll be at SXSW all week, too -- it's easy to justify when you live in Austin :) The conference is so good, though, that if you're in any way involved with technology or the web, it's a worthwhile expense, even if there aren't many education-specific panels this year. I'll try to make it for the Edu Meetup, and hopefully the afternoon official meet up as well, but in any case if you see me wandering the halls be sure to say hi! (or find me on Twitter: @anorwood)
PS: is anyone already here in town attending the new SXSWedu conference that started today (http://www.sxswedu.com/)? It's a K-12 conference, but I feel like I've heard very little chatter about this new track...
