Avoid Humans

While SXSW is chock-full of fantastical things, sometimes, you need to hit the eject button and escape the insanity. To help, GSD&M presents “Avoid Humans” – a web based app that combs data from Foursquare check-ins and combines it with a GSD&M-curated list giving you the least crowded places in Austin. The app is divided into four categories – nightlife, food, coffee and refuge – and each location is color coded indicating the current level of human presence.
