SXSWi 2009, Oh my!

I'll be at SXSWi again this year, dude, it'll be so good but I'm already so worn out!

See me spea at SXSW 2009 ( I leave for Austin for SXSW 2009 in like 10 hours. Holy shit am I completely not packed. I’m washing my jeans right now (drip drying them this quickly will be fun. Hello drying rack!) and then have like four separate loads of clothing to do. I’ll be doing something I almost never do — tumble drying my t-shirts on low. I’d like to avoid it, but um, there’s not way I can drip dry everything in this amount of time. No fucking way.

So Grant and I are driving this year. After last year’s hilarious, yet ultimately awesome snafu with the whole having to drive from Dallas to Austin with friends I made at the airport bit last year, it made more sense for us to drive this year. Especially when we booked our hotel in November, you know, before flights got so cheap. Le sigh.

The awesome, Corvida will be road tripping it with us, and we plan on having a blast. Chris, the brother of the AWESOME Kimberly, of Regator fame will be driving back with us. Geek trip!

OK, so I’ll be in Austin, God-willing, from Thursday – Wednesday. DM me on Twitter (@film_girl) so we can meet up if you’re in town.


Be sure to check out my StudioSX interview with skinnyCorp’s Jeffrey Kalmikoff on Saturday at 3:00 PM. You can also watch the video online afterwards, and I’ll be sure to pimp it out — you know, unless I royally fuck up or something. Just kidding, even if I fuck it up I’ll still pimp the hell out of it.

Victor is leading a Core Conversation about organically growing a fanbase and Grant and I will both be giving some of our thoughts.

I’ll also be moderating a panel on The Convergence of High-End Design, Fashion and Technology at 5 PM.

And of course, I plan on attending as many parties, meet-ups and drinking sessions as possible.

Oh — and because Grant has to have something attention-grabbing at anything he does, we created to coincide with his new brand: social media “expert.” Really, it’s just a play on all the people that brand themselves as experts in marketing or social media or this or that, but really have no qualifications or ideas on what is actually required. Plus, it matches his business cards. Which I also designed. 🙂

OK, my jeans are done, the reds are in the wash and I’m off to do like 50 other things.

See you in Austin!



Alltop, all the cool kids (and me)

Lucky. You’re always going to all these cool events. BTW I didn’t know you were also a designer.

Don’t worry, there’s just as much chance that I’ll fuck it up – probably even moreso than you!
