SxSW notes, for you and for me
(This post originally started on March 13, 2006 at 10:36 AM CST)
The crazy thing about SxSW is that you get busy and don’t have time to do the things you mean to do. It’s not a bad thing, it’s just the way it is. So you go with the flow.
Anyway, I wanted to post notes, cool quotes, and links to folks I’ve met (or reunited with). I’ll update this whenever I have time… maybe not until after I get home!
So far, here are some new folks that I’ve met:
- Ryan and Adam from Infinity Web Design, on the flight from Minneapolis to Austin
- Baratunde (meaning: one who is chosen) at Breaking Bread with Brad
- Kit Seeborg, one of the Webvisions organizers
- Eric Hansen, Minister of Culture (definitely the best title I’ve seen in a while!) at Tom Peters
- Pat Ramsey, standards wrangler at Southwestern University
There are many people here that I already knew (virtually) but am meeting for the first time:
- Chris Kaminski, a fellow WaSP member, and the guy who saved me from having to take time to write some scripts for the new site when I was still busy working on templates and design issues
- Drew McLellan, another fellow WaSP and creator of 24ways
- Kazuhito Kidachi, yet another fellow WaSP, whose done a fine job of translating and testing for the group
And I’ve gotta call out some of my AOL and ex-AOL friends:
- Tom Crenshaw, fellow hockey fan, Corrado enthusiast, and author of the foreward to the Flash 8 Bible
- JoRoan Lazaro, creator of the AOL Running Man
There are some really good pictures up on flickr from various activities, too:
- The WaSP ATF
- Me at the WaSP badge-making table
- How to Convince Your Company to Embrace Standards Panelists (including me!)
And all of my photos are up on Flickr as well.
And here are the slides from the panel I did with my AOL pals!
