Great advice, Chris. I've also been using a speech-to-text app to compose blog posts. (I use Siri with Notes.) whether it is or not, it feels faster than typing, and you can do it almost anywhere.

Great stuff, Nick. Thanks for putting this together. I thought of another one: Don't be afraid to say hi to people. A lot of people are there on their own, and you could create your own posse to hang out with. Plus, a lot of the social media bloggers, thinkers and authors I know (like Ann Handley and Jason Falls and Amber Naslund, for instance) love it when people say, "Hey, I read your book!" Just be respectful of the fact that a lot of the big-name folks at SXSW will be mobbed from time to time, and it might not be the best place to pitch them or ask for a favor, but don't be afraid to introduce yourself.

Jay, this is one of the most beautiful, honest and heartfelt posts I've ever read. Your decision and your inevitable success are a magnificent tribute to your brother. If there's any way I can help support you, let me know.

I completely agree that the social media world spends far too much time quoting stats that are either meaningless, unrelated or yet to be proven. It will continue as long as the people who do social media for a living, whether in companies or agencies or as consultants, are pressured by the people who sign their checks to produce instant ROI. It's harder to wait until all the results are in when the boss is waiting impatiently, and maybe threatening to move the budget dollars somewhere else.
