Creative minds collaborated at SXSW on Saturday evening. The party was everywhere, from the bars to the streets to the premieres. Seth Priebatsch gave a speech titled "Interactive Keynote" about his belief that the new Internet trend will be something called "The Game Layer." In short, Seth says that in the connected world that has evolved through social media, a new space will develop that changes how we approach problem solving by applying game mechanics to issues we face as a society. The next step would be installing game-based applications and tools based around gameplay.
People were definitely playing at the Foursquare party at the Cedar Street Courtyard. Things got so out of hand people took it to the streets.
