Things I Learned from Going to Texas

Wednesday 16 March, 2005 ( 2:48PM GMT)

So, as we all know, it's obligatory to go to the SXSW conference in Texas. So I went. And GOOD it was too. Really, really, F-Bombing good. Although it had a rather frustrating end to it, I had an absolutely amazing time, made a lot of new friends, and I've returned to the UK, with a severe lack of sleep and a failing liver, with a million ideas for conferences, my business, HTML Dog and web design in general.

It's also obligatory to blog about SXSW, so here's my contribution, a list of some of the things I've learned from my SXSW experience:


Comment 1

It was @media or SXSW, I had to make the choice. Good job I don't like flying I guess.

Good to know you are happy with the line up! I can't wait!

Well, y'kow, SXSW is okaaay, but it's kinda just the warm-up act for @media 2005 ;)

Probably the cheaper option for people our side of the pond too - all in all my little four-night American jaunt set me back around £900!

Glad you managed to get to SXSW. I'm also encouraged by your comments about the quality of speakers expected for @media2005. I'm looking forward to it, esp meeting Joe Clark.

Roll on @media2005!

Great to meet you and have some serious fun at SXSW. So glad you enjoyed your time in Austin, and I hope you're catching up on rest - I'm still recovering! It was one hell of a week.
