Lanyrd has released browser extensions for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera Browser to hide updates from SXSW on your Twitter Stream.
This extension would come handy for people who follow a lot of techies most of whom would be attending this event.
Jake Archibald developed this app and this is what he had to say about it:
Hi, I’m Jake Archibald, user-wellbeing developer at Lanyrd International Incorporated Industries. It might be tempting to simply tolerate a Twitter stream like above, but unfortunately prolonged exposure to this brand of gushing joy, in-jokes and comradery can lead to violent emotional and/or physical outbursts.
At Lanyrd, we worried about how this may affect your loved ones, so we locked our science boffins in a room and refused to feed them until they developed an antidote. Well, they emerged earlier today, hungry and holding aloft the Lanyrd “Not At SXSW” browser extension.
