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 (http://sxsw.com) 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.

Also:

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 imamarketingjackass.com 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!

Out!

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!
