Companies making impressions at SXSW

CUTTING THROUGH THE CLUTTER IN AUSTIN: Here's a list of (mostly) music-related companies that managed to cut through the clutter at SXSW Music, cleverly compiled by the elves at Digital Music News. They first collected a list of nearly 900 companies at the event, then tracked each one daily on Twitter. Specifically, any mention of a company name paired with “#sxsw” between the start of SXSW Music between March 16-21 was recorded. Some of these results are obvious, notes the accompanying text, while others may completely surprise you. (3/24a)
