Okay, so I kicked this one off a little later than usaul, but that’s because I logged in the fullest day so far here at SXSW. The official tally is 6 panels, 2 happy hours, and 1 wet party. I’m a little under the weather this morning but that’s due to the massive amount of stuff that I and my lovely girlfriend did and the rain storm that hit us last night. Don’t fret, however, we are taking it easy this morning and heading back down to the convention center to try and make a couple of more panels and keynotes on the last day of the Interactive portion of SXSW. There’s much to go over, so I’ll try to make it condensed.
While I was going through the twitter round up, I couldn’t help but notice that the semantics used to address other tweeps include the @ symbol. That got me thinking about how the @ symbol shows up not only on some web services, but also email, blog comments, and even in the Getting Things Done methodology. I also recalled someone saying that the German name translated to “monkey tail” instead of the widely used “commercial at.” After some research, I discovered where the ubiquitous nature of the @ symbol symbol fits and where it potentially could grow.
