SXSW Interactive: Booked!


I am thrilled to have just booked my airplane and conference ticket for SXSW Interactive, March 13-17, 2009 in Austin. Still working on the hotel part, not easy…

Are you going? Are you a swissmiss reader living in Austin?

  1. I am going! As one of the organizers of ROFLCon, it seems that we may be organizing a drinkup with RocketBoom and LaughingSquid, would you be interested in attending?

  2. I’m going! And yeah – the hotel part ISN’T easy.

    Are you speaking at the event? Would love to meet you. I’ve been a swissmiss fan for ages… ;-)

  3. You can still get a hotel via SXSW’s housing service.

  4. I’m a swissmiss reader (although I seldom comment!) who is going, and I hope to meet you!

  5. Yes – I am in Austin!! Email me! I can help you.

  6. Glad you’re coming! I’ve been going for a few years now, and there really is nothing like it. And I mean that in both the good and bad ways.

    I’ve been a reader for a few years now, and your interests are always so diverse but if you’re interested, I’ve organized a little Polaroid breakfast Saturday morning for fans of the potentially fading medium.

    Anyway, been a fan for a few years and figured I’d say hi. Good luck with the hotel!

  7. I live here too. Will you be speaking? I would love to hear you talk! I hope you find a good room, but book soon! It turns into Crazy Town around here during SXSW. Have you heard of the St. Cecilia Hotel? It’s a brand new boutique hotel by the same woman who created the impeccable Hotel San Jose. High price, but high style.

  8. I’m another long-time Swissmiss reader who is going. I’d be delighted to meet you, and of course if you’re speaking, I’d be delighted to hear you. I hope you find a good place to stay.

  9. I’ll be there for a few days. Doing a panel with Nick Finck. Will look for you. Great job on the redesign, by the way!

  10. I live in Austin too. I love your blog and your work. I’d love to meet you and hear you!

  11. Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I am not speaking at the conference (would love to though!). Don’t hesitate to say hi if you see me at the event!

  12. Long time reader of Swiss-Miss (I check it every day). I live here in Austin too. Swiss-Miss meet up anyone?

  13. I’m going too… I’ve been a long time follower and hope to run into you at one of the panels or an event party. Good luck with the hotel search… I am staying just outside of downtown (4 miles away), if you cant find anything, let me know and I’d be happy to share my room.

  14. Tina,

    I’ll be there. I have a show that coincides with the opening of Winnebago Man, a documentary that used my photos for the opening credits montage.


  15. I’m not going but a friend of mine from Nova Scotia is in a show, Jesse Dangerously .. … it would be pretty neat if my worlds collided when a Swedish blogger in New York I follow from Cape Breton went to a show in Houston featuring my friend from Halifax.

  16. Tina,
    I read your blog religiously. I’m in Austin, if there’s an event you somehow speak at let us know!

  17. You’re going to love it! Have you been to Austin? It’s one of my favorite cities. I’ve been attending SXSW for 8 years. Lots of great bbq, beer and music. It would be awesome to meet you. -db

  18. Yes to both questions! Hope you enjoy your time here in Austin!

  19. yes woohoo! im here, and i’ll one of the volunteers and my sister is also a panelist! looking forward to meeting you!!

  20. yes please: swiss miss meet up in Austin.

  21. i live in Austin and am a friend of Jen and Michael Cogliantry. I’m not doing SXSW this year as I have a 2 month old at home, but let me know if you need anything while you’re in town.

  22. Going! Finally!
    Every year something prevents my attendance. Hopefully not a repeat this year! See you there.

  23. We have two very decent Embassy Suites near downtown, and if the Sheraton on 8th and I-35 has availability, it is also safe. There’s a new shuttle service this year, and we have lots of peidcabs. The Embassy will usually drive people around too, if asked.

  24. As a fellow Swissy, it would be great to meet you; the meet up idea is superb!

    I’ll be speaking at sxsw on March 15, ironically about personal blogs being dead…
