You know about the Beacon Lounge at SXSW, right?

Wait. You don’t? Well if you are coming to SXSW this year you should come say hello! For the fifth year running The Beacon Lounge will be the place to get your good on at SXSW Interactive with the best and brightest do-gooding Geeks in Austin. The 2013 list of “Changineers” & Beacon Lounge sponsors is chock full of awesome groups doing amazing work at the intersection of technology and social good.

To amplify the in-person conversations that will happen at the Lounge, they are pushing the #sxgood hashtag as the central source for social good tech news coming out of SXSWi. The Beacon Lounge is the obvious home for such a “social good stream” of curated thoughts, tools, tips, and campaigns happening online that can make a difference offline. We hope you’ll participate by using #sxgood on Twitter, but the #sxgood hashtag should also work well to aggregate content on Instagram, Google+, Tumblr and Pinterest.
