MAKE alt.SXSW content badgeHot on the heels of alt.GDC comes alt.SXSW. What does “alt.” mean? It’s a throwback to the old alt. domains on USENET and refers to MAKE taking a slightly askew view of these large commercial tech events, in search of maker stories amongst the conventional mayhem. We have a video team and some bloggers at SXSWi and are doing live streaming of the event, making it up as we go along. And this is alt.SXSWi (interactive), so we want to hear your ideas for what we should cover, where we should point our cameras. Send your thoughts and feedback to #makesxsw @make.

  1. Search Twitter for #wemadethis to see reaction to awesome presentation by @robbiew on bringing maker culture to marketing. It was amazing, inspiring, insightful about the future role of makers and creativity in products and marketing development.

  2. What’s going on with all the different network’s internet dongles?

    • Yea, that’s what I wanted to know from the picture. No mention of what all of that is or what it’s used for? Streaming live video?

        Yep, it’s documented with a link on one of the earlier SXSW coverage posts.

        Pretty neat gimwicket, using 4G to stream live video to either an traditional editing/broadcast setup or direct internet feed.
