SXSW Interactive Recap

There’s so much SXSW happening right now, and tomorrow marks the end of this year’s banquet of activities for SXSW Interactive, which includes prominent tech thinkers: Baratunde Thurston, Amber Case, Ray Kurzweil, and Jennifer Pahlka—all of whom were keynote speakers in 2012. Below, I’ve shared talks by these thinkers, as a sort of recap of the technological future, and what we should have learned: hashtags are important, we are cyborgs, the singularity is our future, and our new government will grow with our hands.
