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.

It's the little details that take things from good to great. I think that applies to this Scrabble campaign.
A recent Scrabble brand campaign falls just short of a digital marketing win by focusing on mentions over sustainable brand interaction.

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.
