Seriously +Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation ?   I guess there is a "bubble" for the rich kids and the VC's, but millions of us would love to have the opportunity to participate in an accelerator - that is why some of us are working on approaches by those left out.   I realize it is a good junket, but many SXSW isn't the best place to learn about what is really going on with small business in America.
