With back to back trips lately (an actual skiing vacation to Colorado), I've been more than slammed. And through all this, the repeated narcolepsy of my computer has been loads of fun. But the good news is — my husband and I are at South by Southwest in Austin. Timothy does “music and movie” stuff, so this is the first conference I've had opportunity to attend that includes us both. Most have been more Macromedia/Adobe-related and I'm looking forward to hanging with a huge assortment of my favorite things — geeks! Geeks from every walk of life doing every imaginable type of code. And is this city hoppin'!
I'm about to go register and get my real schedule, but looking at the options online, I see some great panels to attend… great friends to meet… and some great parties (pace yourself Stephanie)… Jen Taylor, Scott Fegette and Bob Regan are here from Adobe. We're having our annual Web Standards Project (WaSP) meeting, so there are over 30 WaSPs registered. A great turn out and some names I'm really going to enjoy meeting in person. And of course, I can't wait to reconnect and hang out with friends I don't often see.
I'll try to report back about the fun and learning… just to make your mouths water a little. And hey — this Austin place is cool!
