Day 3 of the Interactive portion of SXSW was filled with Internet topics from Grumpy Cat to NASA Projects. Below are the top four finds of the day.

  1. Grumpy Cat at the Mashable House. People were lining up almost around the block to meet the feline celeb, Grumpy Cat.  It’s hard to resist being part of such a large meme and we waited in line for almost 20 minutes but when it came our turn for a photo opportunity —we just couldn’t do it. The poor kitty was being picked up about every three minutes by random people and honestly we just stood there and gave the cat a break. She was awesome but after that many people hugging her, we don’t blame her for being grumpy.
  2. As with any festival, food is a central part of the experience and we caught glimpses of two cool food apps. The first is called Forkly and is available in the Apple App store. Forkly helps you share your dining experience with others. The app will show you what’s good and where to get it based on your personal taste.
  3. The second food app is one that has been around for a bit but is still underrated and under utilized. Meet Feastly. Feastly helps eaters find a home cooked meal and great conversation and vice versa for cooks to find new people to feed. We love that it combines food and community.
  4. We know Vine is what mainstream media is talking about, but have you heard of Recood? Recood is a video service that allows you to take short videos and add filters to them. Think Instagram for video. We really liked the snow filter.

The best part of the day was seeing NASA break the world record for the largest astronomy lecture at the @NASAWebbTelescp exhibit.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring, so be sure to let us know what you think of our recommendations in the comments below.
