Jeffrey, Tantek, and I finished up our panel about an hour ago. Apparently the audience enjoyed it, as only one or two people left during the talk and there seems to be some good buzz among attendees. Maybe we’ll expand it and take it on the road. (“Hey, gang, let’s put on a Web talk in my Dad’s old barn!”)
Austin is nice, and SxSW Interactive is quite interesting. Caught some of Fray Café last night but the cigarette smoke drove me elsewhere, unfortunately. I’ve been meeting a lot of people whose names I know well, but whose faces were new to me. That’s the great thing about conferences: they help humanize everything we do, and strengthen intellectual respect into personal appreciation.
