One of the great things about SXSW is all of the online community support that conference garners.  Specifically the folks at Frog Design got to handle and build a great web site to help the community come together.  They built a web site called the pulse and you can find it here:  http://pulse.sxsw.com/

The pulse allows the attendees of SXSW allows the community to come together in a mashed up style of site, that includes blog commentary, pictures and videos.  All the content can have comments and discussions, a very cool design!

Well during my walk, I got to speak with Matt Howell about the pulse site and how it was built!
