After 4 days of trying to deftly navigate the trecherous waters of
panels and keynotes and parties and sideways brautwurst vendors, my
time at SXSWi has come to an end. So goodbye, Austin, and goodbye
Driskill Hotel with your broken thermostat. Goodbye endless line of
Q&A audience members who actually had no intelligible questions and
were just grabbing the mic for some free PR for your busted 'start-up.'
Goodbye actual rock stars (like Michael Stipe who we bumped into last
night at Pangea), the kind of rock star that the dot-com nerdster rock
star really wishes they themselves were (if not, then why do you play
Rock Stat so much?).
Hellow home, my beautiful, loverly wife and darling Bubby! Easy trade
any time, anywhere!
My loverly wife made me an adorable pocket monster named Orwin as a surprise for SXSW, to carry around with me to remember how much she loves and misses me. Isn't my wife awesome?!
Anyhoo, I pinned him to my always-on badge so EVERYONE can see how much my wife loves me! Look for them soon on her Etsy shop...=^)
