I'm taking off my SXSWi training wheels now and deeming myself an authority on the subject now that I've survived my 8th year. While I miss the times when there were just a handful of rooms with keynotes in 18ABC (adding D on as years went by) I can still say I really enjoyed the conference this year. Expanding out to more than just a couple of the local hotels and moving registration to the first floor really changed the crowd dynamics we saw in the past 3 years. Also, mostly by luck I think: the only line I stood in this year was the massive security checkpoint line as I left Austin. Yeah, it's a bummer I didn't get to see as many friends as I'd have liked, but I did get to meet a ton of new people. And if I'm being totally honest, it's the primary reason I go. I get to climb out of my damp Oregon cave in the morning and meet new real life friends in air that feels exactly the opposite of the clammy Pacific Northwest. Technically I think that's called "buttery". I think if the Foursquare app actually ran a bit snappier on my 3G iPhone I might have caught up with old friends more. But I think that slowness actually motivated me to simply say hello to more people than I would have and let events unfold as they might.
