SXSW 2008 — Is It March Yet?

In two weeks I’ll be flying to Austin, Texas for SXSWi and I am this [        ] much excited.

I wasn’t able to go last year and found it to be unfortunately painful that I couldn’t be there. It’s the place where I see most of my friends in person so missing last year means it’s been 2 years since I’ve seen most of them.

I’ll be staying at the Hampton, sharing a room with Anton Peck and Matthew Pennell. I arrive around noon on the 6th and leave on the 12th.

Things I am looking forward to: bowling, eating at Moonshine, playing kickball, and meeting people. New people. Going to try and let my inner extrovert out more. One of my goals is to run out of business cards.

If you are going, please find me and say hi. I’m the guy who looks like me.

    Hey Matt,

    Look for me as well – I’m the guy with brown hair, glasses, and a beard.

    Wait a minute…

    Anyway, always nice to meet more Boston area folks.
