SXSW 2008 - Frank Warren and the PostSecret Project

So, today at SXSW Interactive 2008, I graphically recorded Frank Warren. He's the author and curator of The PostSecret Project, which involves giving people blank, stamped post cards to be sent back to his address. His request is that people write one secret on the post card - one that is authentic and has never been told. Over time, Warren began to be flooded with post cards, some tragic, some criminal, some heroic. His presentation to the audience was eloquent but his message was simple: We don't keep our secrets; our secrets keep us. And sharing them takes courage but ultimately allows you to be free. It was a remarkable session.
