I’m in Austin for my fourth SXSW and I’m fixin’ to have a rip roaring good time for the coming week. Every year I come home after having met even more good people than the last time and I end up a better person from the experience. The excitement is different than my first time which was a mix of apphrension and excitement. This time I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones and filling every evening with good food and conversation.
Also, the first rule about SXSW is to meet and greet. If you’re coming and you haven’t met me, please come up to me at any time and introduce yourself. If you’re feeling like a wallflower at the very least consider that most of the people here feel that way.
