bird poops on plum branch
In the airport on my way to Austin for SXSW Interactive. There by 7. I think this is my... 7th year? I've spoken at panels, skipped panels, slapped people, almost got beaten up by a cowboy, been nominated for awards (but have never won), been a deadbeat, eaten plates of nothing but meat, watched Cameron eat a ball of butter, made out with lots of people, played kickball, auditioned for a Facebook reality show, been interviewed, slept in very late, and even learned a lot about stuff on the Internet from the amazing people who build it in the process. This year, we're throwing a big party (Monday Night Frrvrr at the Mohawk) with a bunch of good bands and the pseudo-launch of a cool new product. You gotta come!

Every year is different, some are about everyone building hobby sites, others are about selling those hobby sites to big companies, others are about getting depressed working at a big company that you sold your soul to, and others are about starting new companies and quitting your old job at the big company. These themes just emerge as the set of people grow and evolve and adapt and invent over time. I'm curious to see what the theme is this year.

If you're gonna be there I can't wait to see you! I'll be using twitter, dodgeball, upcoming, and my lemming sense of following the crowd for the next 5 days.

bah! *jealous*

I've never been to SXSW. This ain't my year, but maybe I'll try to go next year to see what all the hot fuss is about!

yes, you would LOVE it.

I think I get there the day before you leave. I will dodgeball or something when I get there.
