For the first time since I was a boy (12 years?), I am not attending SXSW. (why?)
I already miss the iron cactus conversations and the walks to and from. I miss the hugs from old friends and meeting so many amazing new people. I miss the Shiner Bocks. I miss the clever t-shirts. I miss Brad, too.
If you are heading to Austin, hug yourself from me. And have a blast.
I LOVE YOU.
Here’s a SXSW memory from way back when I hosted the Web awards:
The gag was instead of “switching” from a PC to a Mac, I was switching to a computer (from analog.) This one was about Blogs, but substitute the word “Tweet” and the gags work even better.
