We've teamed up with Hackpad to enable collaborative note taking for every session at SXSW Interactive.
I've been fascinated by collaborative note taking ever since I discovered SubEthaEdit (then called Hydra) in my last year at university. It's amazing how effectively a small group of people can capture notes if they're all editing the same document at once.
For this year's SXSW Interactive, we've teamed up with newly launched Y Combinator company Hackpad to provide collaborative note taking for every session at the conference. Just browse to one of our session pages and you'll see a link to the corresponding hackpad - with an indicator of the number of people who are currently editing the document.
If you're the first in, don't worry - you can tweet about the document to invite people in to edit with you.
The notes are all covered by the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license so you know exactly where you stand with your contributions.
Give it a go - you'll be surprised at how much fun it can be.
