Worlds apart 

South by Southwest speakers offer mixed messages

Even though SXSW has outlived, or at least outdone, similar events (the New Music Seminar, CMJ Marathon, North by Northwest), it's also been written off by a rare combination of idealists and cynics. First came the festival's discovery by major labels, which supposedly ruined it. Then came the decline of said labels, which ensured that its days were numbered.
