The SXSW Social Breakfast Guests

Slowly catching up with the follow-ups from March, and Henriette nudged me about this video. I passed around a Flip camera at the SXSW Social Breakfast to find out who was there.
This is the result.

Today is Going to be ‘Leave a Comment Day’

One of things I decided to do a lot at this year’s SXSW conference was to introduce people. It’s been joked by some that I know everyone at these conferences. I don’t, but when I get stopped in the halls of the Austin Convention Centre every ten yards it’s kind of hard to not generate [...]

Some Of My Highlights from the Various March/USA Events

So the USA trip is over, and I’m getting back into the current time-zone; but there are a lot of great memories. Too many to mention them all, but here are a few highlights.

The Little Gems of SXSW

At any conference, but especially at SXSW, it’s the surprise invites, the unexpected meetings and tiny moments you remember. This year is no different.
I’m in the Blogger Lounge yesterday (which makes an interesting comparison to the official press room, more on that after the event I think) and thinking I need to go back to [...]
