To avoid severe FOMO at the show, follow my SXSW 2018 Twitter Guide: Who To Follow to keep up on all of the shenanigans.

Skip impossibly long lines for films, comedy and music shows by snagging SXXPRESS passes the night before on the SXSW GO app, 8pm for music, 24 hours before film. Platinum badges get 3 passes per day, film & music badges get 2, and interactive badges get nada.

The full schedule is available on iOS, Android and online but be forewarned, it’s massive…you’re going to need a guide. So below are my top picks for having the best time ever. I’ll be on the ground with Geekazine’s Jeff Powers for the entire show. Follow all the shenanigans @geekazine @contentnow and tweet us your adds.

Here’s My Genome – Call Me Maybe, The age of ‘precision’ healthcare, where an individual’s personal metrics are used to target therapy and design preventive recourse, is still in its infancy, but Linda helped push it forward. In 2006 she co-founded 23andMe, the leading personal genetics company. Simply by providing a saliva sample, individuals can learn about themselves through the lens of their DNA. There are now over 1 million people enrolled, making it the world’s largest genetic database with online ties to its participants, 80% of whom contribute to the company’s research mission. 23andMe was chosen as Invention of the Year in 2008 by TIME magazine. Linda’s current start-up is We Are Curious, Inc., which she co-founded in 2011 with Heather Anne Halpert and Mitsu Hadeishi. Curious is an online platform where diverse data from sensors, wearables, trackers, apps, social media, biometrics, and other sources of personal data can be gathered, explored, and shared. The proliferation of these devices and the accumulation of personal data can be overwhelming; Curious provides analytics, a social graph, and an infrastructure for people to get the most out of that data. Prior to her start-up experience, Linda spent over two decades working in the pharma/biotech and biomedical research field, directly interfacing with scientists who sequenced the human genome to protein biochemists mapping the proteome. Those experiences motivated her to create new and disruptive research strategies.

Instagram has changed everything. The rise of new distribution platforms like it have led to new kinds of influencers. And as we learn more about what’s healthy and what’s not, there’s a big movement away from processed, packaged, shelf-stable goods to real food. We’ll explore how this profound shift began, what’s good and bad about where we’re at today, and why where it’s headed isn’t even about food at all. Melissa Hartwig is a Certified Sports Nutritionist who specializes in helping people change their relationship with food and create life-long, healthy habits. She is the co-creator of the original Whole30 program, and a four-time New York Times bestselling author (It Starts With Food, The Whole30, Food Freedom Forever, and The Whole30 Cookbook). She has been featured by Dr. Oz, Good Morning America, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Details, Shape, Outside, and SELF, and ranked #27 on Greatists Top 100 Most Influential People in Health and Fitness in 2017. Melissa has presented more than 150 health and nutrition seminars worldwide, and is a prominent keynote speaker on social media and branding, health trends, and entrepreneurship.
