Got into Austin without a problem. Leaving a melting Columbus OH (20 inches of snow this weekend) to warmer weather is always fun, especially since I am personally waging a War Against Snow.. (although I do miss my lady and my dog)
Getting my badge took no time at all, SXSW has a mini-army to easily guide you to where you need to be. I found my way to the press lounge, where there’s free drinks! And lots of power outlets and computers to get your work done.. (and surprisingly, a lot of trash…)
I don’t have much planned for today, saving energies for the next few days. (as I type this, a dude dressed up sorta looking like Judge Dredd came into the press room. Am I at Comic Con?)
These last two days I’ve been getting hundred of last minute SXSW party notices. Either people didn’t get to me earlier or they’re just getting their act together now. My word of advice – plan a little better next year. At this point I am in E-mail genocide mode, deleting without mercy.
