Sensors were a huge conversation point at #SXSW  this year. A deluge of sensors makes connected cities and experiences a reality. I say bring it on.

Can Buzzfeed have its cake and eat it, too? Or is it resigned to being a collection of lists and animal posts? A reflection on an excellent SXSW talk from the site's founder, Jonah Peretti.
