Getting (dis)organized for SxSWi in Austin
SxSWi looks to be quite the PathCross: The microformats panel on Monday is what put the conference on my radar this year, but it's just one of dozens of panels that I really want to see. It's overwhelming. Of course, that's part of the appeal of the Austin/SXSW scene: creative chaos. As a student, my creed was "never plan more than 15 minutes ahead." Life was much simpler, in many ways, back then.
Other stuff I'm looking forward to:
- Saturday: Matt May's invitation to a social event looks interesting.
- Sunday: Flickr, Upcoming.org, and Del.icio.us in the company of Yahoo!. I RSVP'd, but so did 390 other people. If the Iron Cactus were big enough to fit all of us, I: think I would remember it. Oh... hmm... it seems to be on 6th street; the names on the clubs there rotate with the seasons; some of them big enough, if we don't all show up at once.
- Tuesday: Kevin Lawver: How to Convince Your Company to Embrace [Web] Standards
- MattB will be there
I'm driving down with Mary and the boys, stopping to visit folks here and there.
