Take notes collaboratively at SXSW with Hackpad and Lanyrd

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.

Give it a go - you'll be surprised at how much fun it can be.
