From wrecking ball selfies to 6degrees of Kevin Bacon, SXSW has it all!

SXSW is a fusion of social, mobile, gaming, film, tv and music creative forces coming together for endless days and nights of partying.

So whether you’re seeking to take selfies on a giant wrecking ball, go Mario Karting  with Nicolas Cage, Kevin Bacon, Jason Bateman, Seth Myers, Mark Cuban, Adam Savage, and Geoff Keighley, or boogie til dawn with Soundgarden, Phantogram, Snoop Dogg, Michael Jordan, and Fred Armisen, there’s something for everyone at this festival.

I’ll be teaming up with Machinima’s super diabolical Brett ‘Hundar’ Hundley for the ultimate SXSW Interactive crawl. Follow us @contentnow @hungryhundar for all the shenanigans as we attempt to cover the 77+ events below.

If you go, prepare with my Pocket Gamer SXSW 2014 Survival Guide –  YOLO!

Happy New Year!

Below is the start of the 2012 WHO’S WHO IN GAMING TWITTER GUIDE.  It was storming here over the holidays so I took some time to put this together so that everyone could get to know each other before coming to town for GDC.  The list is close to 1000 names, and I’m sure I missed most of you and got half of it wrong, so please feel free to send your edits and additions to me @contentnow.

Also, you might see some of your best friends or favorite writers next to a site he or she just left with an (A) next to their name – that indicates they’re alumni who are still tweeting about games and superfun to have at a party – just didn’t know where else to put them on the list.

Lastly, and in full disclosure, I’m EA & IGN alum and the Head of PR & Marketing at Outspark, a leading MMO publisher based in San Francisco.  You’re definitely going to see bias 🙂

Thanks & Enjoy!  Martine
