It’s been a lonely day at the office for us at camp GigaOM, with multiple writers headed out to Austin, Texas, for South by Southwest where they’ll have all sorts of fun while we remain in rainy San Francisco. Luckily, you don’t have to be in Austin to join in on the fun that is SXSW — the indie bands, the art house movies, and all the location, micro-blogging and newteevee madness — as the annual event is slowly warming up to live streaming.
Most of the SXSWi program, including a panel featuring GigaOM’s Liz Gannes and a talk given by our own Liz Shannon Miller will unfortunately not be streamed live. However, there’s a number of events that will, so we decided to compile a handy little list for everyone who is, much like ourselves, left behind.
Ustream is having a big party tonight, SXSW opening night, with live performances of the Method and the Class Heroes starting live at 8 p.m. CT/6 p.m. PST.
Justin.tv teamed up with Brick and Mortar Media to produce a show live from the Austin Convention Center floor. Bamm.tv will start on Sunday at 10:30 a.m. PST and continue almost daily with live performances and talks on subjects like the future of copyright. Bamm’s schedule can be found on Justin.tv’s blog.
The Social Media Clubhouse is also live on Justin.tv with daily shows starting on 03/12 as well as special events like the Synaptic Web Summit and the CoWorking Summit. For a detailed schedule check Justin.tv’s blog.
Levis’ Fader Fort will get it’s party on every day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. PST. The event is “one of the hottest unofficial parties every year,” according to Justin.tv.
Microsoft’s BizSpark Accelerator will be streamed live by Level3 on March 15 and 16. The contest will pit 32 startups against each other to find the best in social, web and mobile media. Participants will pitch their products to a live audience, and the event will be moderated by Brad King, Chris Sacca, Dean McCall and Tim Street.
We’ll add more links as they come in, so check back frequently, and feel free to add links to your own live streams in the comments.
