It’s that special time of year when we pack our bags and head for Texas. Our destination, of course, is SXSW Interactive (aka “Spring Break for Geeks”). The conference doesn’t kick off until Saturday, but Austin is such a happening place that we generally like to get there a day early just to hang around. The fact that Austin has free wireless Internet in every bar, and that margaritas are cheaper than water has (almost) nothing to do with our love of the city.
My personal goals for this year’s SXSW are:
- Solve the mystery of the SXSW press room
- Devour a few nuclear tacos
- Meet a few (hundred) 9rules members
- Drink Nick Denton into the poor house
As a result of all of this excitement, we may not be posting as regularly as we normally do. I’m not a big fan of live blogging during the sessions. It always seems to be a just a slightly more advanced form of stenography.
If you’re headed for Austin as well try to track us down and say Hi. And be sure to ask us for a Medialoper sticker. They’re hot off the presses and we’ve got more than we know what to do with.
