SXSW Initial Thoughts!



The first true sessions are about to kick off, but I want to relay to you my experience over the past 4 hours have been just hanging out and talking to people. One thing is for sure we live in a very small world. I have run into no less than 30 people I know personally in the new media space. I talked for a few minutes with Tim Street, Leo Laporte, Mark McCrery and a host of other familiar faces. I have also met no less than 20 new folks that will be fun to follow on Twitter and also potential business clients.

I read someplace that the best thing to do is say Hi to everyone. Folks tend to be a little shy until you say hello and wow some great conversations have resulted. The networking power of this conference for me thus far only 4 hours into is living up to the reputation I expected.

Geek News Central at SXSW



I will be in Austin for SXSW from March 11th to 15th. Unlike CES I will be going Solo and this will change the way I cover this event. Expect more intimate interviews some audio and some video dependent on the situation, location etc.

I am also going to try and live stream some of the events as well but this year is more exploratory to see what we can do next year on a larger scale.

If you would like to meet with me at SXSW please contact me as soon as possible so I can get you written in.


GNC-2009-03-20 #461 Fantastic Show Today



Your host is back and healthy and feeling good. If you watch the video sporting a Bono look ;) and ready to head to the East Coast next week should be a great trip with a series of Podcaster Meetups all across the country.
