What I like about this unique format of panel transcripts is that it shows how rich those on-stage conversations actually were. Sometimes you find yourself in the audience, passive and wondering if the discussion on-stage is really all that meaningful to you. Well, it is -- as long as you engage and translate what's being said into another creative act.

Or as someone pointed out on one of last year's SXSW panels: "I write it down not to remember it later. I write it down to remember it now."
