    This is the data SimpleGeo collected from the eight geolocated data providers (FourSquare, Gowalla, Twitter, Flickr, Bump, Brightkite, BlockChalk, and Fwix) during the South by SouthWest Interactive Festival. The live datastream was available on http://austin.vicarious.ly, but we thought people might enjoy a conference retrospective in data. If you'd like to have access to this data and more, and/or outsource your entire geolocation infrastructure to the experts in massive geodatasets, check out http://simplegeo.com; we're in Beta right now, with a full launch at the end of March! Created with Processing (http://processing.org/ ). Maps from the OpenStreetMap project (http://www.openstreetmap.org ). Music: "Pocket Tanks," Eliran Ben-Ishai (DNA-Groove).
