6 big ideas fromSXSW Interactive 2013a VISUAL recap
This year at SXSW Interactive, ImageThinkhosted the SXnotes initiative. Over the fivedays of this festival of innovation and ideas, wecreated over a dozen visual summaries of presen-tations and panel discussions.Again and again we heard common themesechoed across presentations. In the followingslides we’ll share the 6 Big Ideas that emerged forus, as well as the visual notes from each sessionwe covered.We hope they inspire you!
#1: Connectivity Burn-out is GrowingOne theme that came again and againwas how the giddiness of new apps, smartphones, and social media platforms has giv-en way to the realization that these toolsare transforming the way we relate to eachother. We’re overindulging in connection,and the result is we’re becoming distractedfrom bigger ideas and our stress level is onthe rise.
#2: Information overload is making usstupid and angryNate Silver of FiveThirtyEight.com andDouglas Rushkoff both spoke of the per-ils of too much information. Clay Johnsonwarned of the dangers in overly-processedinformation. Silver reminded us that at oth-er points in history when information be-came more plentiful due to innovation (i.e.the printing press) conflict also increased.The more information that is shared, themore people form opinions and take action.But the type of information we consumeaffect the conclusions we draw. Rushkoffcoined the term fractal-noia for the erro-neous connections we make from seem-ingly unrelated information.
#3: Geeks are our futureFrom cartoonist and keynote speaker, Mat-thew Inman’s reverence for inventor NicolaTesla, to Alexis Ohanian’s cry for moregeeks in office. Ariel Waldman of Science-HackDay.com spoke wistfully of the hacker-age of NASA in the 1960’s. Appreciationand celebration of the geek ethos of curi-osity, exploration and experimentation wasa thread woven across the festival.
