As South by Southwest Interactive is right around the corner, I want to let people know that I’m attending and would love to meet and hang out with any and all of you who are going too. It’s a great event with a ton of interesting panels and keynotes, but the most important part (for me at least) is the people you meet and talk to throughout the days and nights. Last year I met some really cool people and I look forward to doing so again.
If you’re coming and you’d like to hang out at the conference or any of the after-parties, lemme know by replying to this entry, or tapping my shoulder during the events. There is no reason to wander SXSWi alone! Start conversations with strangers, and if that isn’t your style, look for me and say hi (you’re reading this post, so we’ve now me, right? right). There’s a picture of me at the bottom of this entry so you’ll recognize me.
I’m local to Austin and am gathering some other local Web folk as well, so I hope to have a nice size group together. For those who aren’t technical, don’t worry, some of the best conversations tend to focus on broader topics, and I know many of us welcome a chance to learn about areas beyond dev and design. Cross-pollination is good.
Wow, that’s a large photo… Anyway, I may or may not be wearing the glasses, but my head should remain shiny.
So come say hi. It doesn’t matter if I’m talking to other people, join in!
Where I’ll be
Events I plan to attend, but subject to last minute distractions and possible double-booking (tell me if I’m missing something good!).
I’ll try to publish the schedule of panels I plan to attend when I have a chance.
