Panels I’m Planning to Attend at SXSW Interactive

Keeping in the spirit of not waiting until the last minute, I’m looking to fill out my schedule for South By Southwest Interactive before I get there next week.

My original intent was to drive down Saturday, but it looks like there are a couple of panels on Friday that I don’t want to miss.
