While standing in line for an hour to get my badge and materials at this year’s SXSW Interactive Conference, I had time to ponder my first trip to Austin for the event. Initially, my plans for attending centered around hunting down and harassing SEO spammers but a little extra time to reflect reminded me of the insensitivity and meaninglessness of such actions. Besides, that time could be much better spent hunting down beer and merch.
All kidding aside, Friday got off to a slow start, panel-wise, but that seemed to suit the nice, laid back nature of this town. At least the AT&T network seemed stable. We’ll see how that goes in the following days. If you have something specific to bitch CrunchGear at SXSW, twoot me at getdonovan.
Check back for details as I sort the good from the bad and pass the info on.
