SXSW and the Great Hope

There were a few articles and speeches from the SXSW festival that I found intriguing simply because the implicit theme was self-defined, community-based media production and control.

This piece by Derek Powazek highlights how out of touch Hollywood is.

Bruce Sterling's speech was powerful. The end portion, to me, is a moving call for an authentic populist movement in America.
