"If you want to make a living as an artist, now is the best time to do it." — Ron Bloom, Podshow, SXSW 2008
I had to take 5 as SXSW IS media madness, from gamers to bloggers to filmmakers to musicians... despite all the events, I've only gone to one scheduled panel thus far. That said, the Bloghaus is already hopping and I have been doing a lot of talking to folks for The Conversation Group Flip video project. Pure Digital gave us some of the nifty hand-held cameras to capture the impressions of attendees "This is SXSW."
My multi-tasking skills have increased threefold: catch a panel or show, twitter and video all at the same time. Pretty crazy.
Many cool folks are in town and later hold the promise of Yo lo Tengo at one of the film parties. Hopefully I will see a movie before I'm done here before the music starts in full.
did I mention it's cold in Austin (but not snowing like Dallas)?
