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!

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