SXSW 2010

The Internet is Serious Business

I’ll be going to SXSW Interactive and speaking on the subject of packaging and selling digital content. I’m arriving Friday night and leaving Monday evening. If you see me, come up and say “hey”. SXSW is a great opportunity to meet with some of the smartest people working in the technology and new media industries. Relationships formed there result in business opportunities later.

Pro Tip: bring your iPhone charger and carry it with you. What with the all the Twitter and Gowalla and Facebook and Foursquare going on, you’ll need to recharge throughout the day. Also with so many smartphones invading Austin, wifi and 3G coverage has been terrible in prior years, so try turning off 3G for better connectivity. Worked for me.

I'll be there Friday to Monday.

I'll be there Friday to Monday.

I’ll be attending SXSW Interactive March 13th through the 16th. Lots of clients, friends, execs, CEO’s, buyers, entrepreneurs, geeks, dreamers, videogamers and internet cool kids will be there . I hear it’s going to be even busier this year than last year, but I hope to get a better start than 2008 when I got stuck with a “kids room” after I arrived late to my hotel. Still, I had a great time and met a lot of great people.

Hope you can make it. If you see me this weekend, say “hey”. I’ll be the tall guy with the camera.
