From the floor of the Austin Convention Center, TechCrunch TV is live with all the latest news from SXSW. Find out what TechCrunch writers have to say about their favorite apps, events, and surprises. TCTV’s Colleen Taylor leads a roundtable with our TechCrunch writers. There was huge pre-show buzz for the app, Highlight. We’ll talk to the Founder Paul Davison and about whether it lived up to the hype.
Our thanks to the folks at Newtek’s who are providing the studio and Tricaster for the show. If you are in Austin, join the studio audience on the 1st floor of the exhibit hall at Newtek booth #713. Or watch it on our Ustream player above.
We will be monitoring your questions and comments on twitter at #sxswcrunch.
