Well, I made it. I rolled into SXSWi at about 11:00am today (Sat) got my badge and promptly headed out for some Mexican food at Chuy’s. Thanks to my host Carrie for taking the time to show me around and point out the free parking and free wi-fi spots. Free is good.
I spent good amount of time on the drive down shooting some video. I’ll do some editing and post a quick video recap of the trip early next week. (For a taste look for the uber professional “tease” at Minnov8.)
My first “official” SXSWi session is a keynote presentation from Tony Hsieh from Zappos.com. I’ll post some tweets and thoughts as we go this week, but everything will be post session. I can’t listen and tweet at the same time. Hey, you have to know your limitations. Time to get my “conference shoes” working!
