My optimistic SXSW Schedule

Well it looks like all of the fun will get started tomorrow for SXSW 2007, and as long as the rain holds off (pretty please) I think we'll all be in good shape. I've been compiling some last-minute notes of some of the stuff that I'm going to try to catch this week, and most of my proposed schedule is listed here for anyone that is curious. This will most likely be revised for each day, and I still don't have my evening show picks figured out yet, but here is what I have as of this minute. Hope to see some of you out there this week!
