For the fourth time, I’m at the annual geek retreat in Austin. Since I went when it was but 300 people, I’m obliged to marvel at how big the conference is getting. I remember when we had to walk uphill, through the snow, both ways, *on fire*, to get to every panel.
This year, I’m going to retire the hoodie I got five years ago wen I first attended SXSW. It’s a big deal, mind you. FYI.
Anyhow, I’ll attend a subset of these sessions, if you’re curious. I’m hoping on “attending” the “hallway track” more often this year. Also, I’m going to take the leap and not bring my laptop with me. Just a Moleskine and my trusty tricorder.
If you aren’t are coming, I will continually lament your absence. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing you there!
