This is my 5th trip down to Austin Texas for the annual South By Southwest Interactive Festival. I always have a fantastic time during my visits to SXSW – - I get the chance to rub noses with some favorite geeks across the internet, from all points on the globe and do a little promotion of my various books and projects that I have going on at the time.
I am leaving for Austin exactly one week from today! I am flying out of Milwaukee on March 11th and am staying in Austin through March 15th. I will be mainly out of the office during those dates – but will be checking email and, of course, progress on various ongoing projects that are in my current and active queue. Should you need to get in touch with me directly during those dates, please send us an e-mail and my assistant, Lindsey, will be happy to assist you – - or grab my attention in Austin if it is urgent.
If you are reading this and are also planning on being in Austin for SXSW – please let me know! I love SXSW for the opportunity to meet new people and to put faces to names I see floating around in my Twitter and Facebook accounts!
Also, if you’re going – I am planning on being at the SXSW Happy Hour & Internet Oldtimers Meet Up on Saturday, March 13th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at J Blacks Lounge for some fun with old friends I only get to see once or twice a year, and new friends that I haven’t met yet! You’re invited to come – it’s shaping up to be a great time with great people! Hope to see you there!
