CrunchWeek: Messenger Adds Payments, Lyft’s Financials, And TechCrunch Does SXSW

Welcome back to our temporary CrunchWeek set as we rebuild Video Land here at TCHQ. This week Sarah Lane, Ryan Lawler and myself dug into the week’s most important topics: Facebook’s work to bring user-to-user payments to Messenger, the inside scoop on how fast Lyft is growing, and what was the big new thing at this year’s SXSW festival.

Oh, and a small point: TechCrunch is launching a new daily show called Crunch Report that our own Sarah Lane will host starting Monday. That’s mere days from now. We’re pretty excited.

Now, crack a beer, sit back and kick it with us.
