Online though, you're either a raging douchebag or a guy whose FB friends are in better relationships with hotter girls or guys. Join our panel of mental health experts, healthy relationship facilita- tors, gender theorists and one meathead Jersey-boy poet to discuss how men talk about (or don't talk about) emotions online. 408-409 402-403 401 Lounge 405 407 404 Salon 1 Salon 2 Salon 3 Salon 4 Salon 5-6 Salon 7 Salon 8 406 Lounge East 2 nd Street Brazos Street North Congress Avenue J W G R A N D B A L L R O O M 406 GR 4th Floor SOCIAL & PRIVACY FESTIVAL SESSIONS SXSW 2015 Interactive Festival 187 Jamia Wilson Christopher Gandin Le Zeynep Tufekci Marko Werman
