I’m a Media Whore! The SXSWi Edition

I know I'm not even fake Internet famous (trust me, I KNOW), but that won't stop me from pimping the interviews I did last week.

SXSWi! OK, I’ll be writ­ing a much more thor­ough round-up of the whole thing later on — but I’m still play­ing catch up. Yeah, yeah, I got home two days ago. Lots to catch up on! I have a post almost fin­ished with shout outs and thank yous to all the cool peo­ple I met, and that should be up tomorrow.

One of the many great things about Twit­ter is that you get so used to someone’s avatar, you can call out to them in a crowd, even at some­thing like SXSWi. Sev­eral peo­ple rec­og­nized me by name just because of Twit­ter, which has the result of mak­ing you feel both a weird (in a totally awe­some way) and pseudo-famous. The “I’m a some­body” vibe only increases because so many peo­ple are doing video inter­views and podcasts.

Please under­stand, I know I’m not even fake Inter­net famous (trust me, I KNOW), but that won’t stop me from pimp­ing the inter­views I did last week.

In an effort to not totally kill your feed reader with flash files, 

Loren Feldman 1938Media.com

OK, Loren has been one of my favorite web video guys for a LONG, LONG time. Being inter­viewed by him, meet­ing him in per­son (sorry his lady was sick, it would have been great to meet her) and hang­ing out at the Gawker party was just a blast. Loren would be the man even if he hadn’t inter­viewed Grant and I for his site.

Aaron “Technosailor” Brazell Technosailor.com

Aaron is such a great guy! He’s been a favorite Twit­terati for quite some time and I love all the stuff he does on his site and with b5Media. It was such a blast hang­ing out with Aaron and his crew. Plus, you gotta love a guy who yells “Bea­con sucks!” dur­ing the Face­book keynote.

Styledash Geek Chic Profile

Yeah, I won’t lie. This is pretty insane. Geek Chic is going global baby!

And Styledash also has this utterly awe­some Guide to Geek Chic at SXSW

And no Media Whore­dom post would be com­plete with­out link­ing to my inter­view with Guy Kawasaki of Alltop.com and True­mors — more inter­views will be up in the com­ing days on Down­load­Squad (our hotel wifi was teh suck).

Am I the only one that found the inter­view in a legacy pay phone room where all the pay phones were ripped out to be telling on mul­ti­ple lev­els? That was such a tele­poca­lypse moment! I’m reminded of the scene from Johnny Dan­ger­ously where all the news writ­ers run for the row of pay phones…

Great inter­views all around :)

your media who­r­ish­ness only makes me love you more. what’s filmgirl.tv all about? are you in stealth mode??? can’t wait for that! unless you start life­cast­ing every trip you make to star­bucks. then i would have to unfol­low you and i might even pre­tend not to know you whilst grab­bing a half fat not latte cappa cap­puc­cino with Ryan Block at SxSW 2009.

PS. I don’t even drink cof­fee, so it would be a pretty big dis. PPS. I’d write more but I just fin­ished watch­ing “Atone­ment” and I’m find­ing it hard to find pur­pose in life.

The best thing about SXSW was meet­ing folks that I have inter­acted with online on dif­fer­ent lev­els and find­ing them as awe­some in real life. Makes you like them even more (but not in a stalk­er­ish crazy way…)
