It’s that time of year, and SXSW Interactive (that week-long mass pilgrimage of web, film, music and — for the first time this year with a conference track of their own — education innovators to beautiful Austin, TX) is almost around the corner.
Since there’s a good chance I’ll make the trip out there yet once again, I thought I’d take a quick look at the schedule. Here are some of this year’s sessions in the areas of politics, open government, crowdsourcing and the like that look particularly promising:
