  • ZOMG lightning and thunder in Austin! #
  • And I’m on the 24th floor. :-O #
  • Breakfast with @billpearson. I’m not a breakfast person, so it’s the fruit plate for me. #
  • I’m from Oregon. I don’t believe in umbrellas. :-) #
  • I’m hearing a drum/Samba band, or something, out in the street from my hotel room. People cheering at 9AM? Wha? #
  • @PragueBob Heh. Portland, actually. I grew up in Utah, but lived in Oregon for almost 10 years, and that’s home. Wife is from Springfld, tho #
  • @RichSPK I have no idea why there’s a drum band, chanting, and cheering in the streets, in the rain, at 9AM. Only at SXSW! :-) #
  • What I thought was a Samba drum band turned out to be some sort of protest. Justicia! #
  • @RichSPK I have no idea. They had a tomato shaped sign that said Justicia, and were chanting in Spanish. I speak Spanish, couldn’t understnd #
  • Connecivity sucks today. Wifi is spotty, and I have no cell signal. Can’t even send text messages. :-( #
  • Last session convinced me more than ever that TV is dead. So sad that so many people haven’t noticed. The corpse is rotting! #
  • PSA to all SXSW attendees: turn off the key click on your iPhone, and the beep on your camera. It’s annoying, and marks you as a n00b. #
  • @croncast I’ll try to drop by the bloghaus. Is it still a zoo? #
  • @r just came by and caught me cat napping before the “web that wasn’t” session. :-) #
  • “The best technology doesn’t always win.” – Alex Wright #
  • I can has cheezburger. Liberty Tavern at the Hilton, across the street from the convention center. #
  • Dear HostMySite people: Please stop calling me, spamming me, trying to sell me web hosting. I’ve killfiled you in GrandCentral. #
  • Even though I’m unhappy with mediatemple, I am NOT shopping for a new web host, and if I was, I wouldn’t pick the one that spams my phone. #
  • @turoczy That was a very kind writeup. How come it won’t show up on the front page? (not that I care, but I’m sorry if your site is borken) #
  • @turoczy *blush* keep that up, and I really WILL have to start paying you as my PR agent. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • Being kind of a loner, cause I still feel sick, and I don’t want to share. #
  • @rachelbancroft It’s OK. How are you feeling today? Better, I hope. :-( #
  • @billpearson UMPCs have been 800×480 for a long time. My guess is that the LCDs with that DPI are cheap, while higher res ones are more $$. #
  • @billpearson The EeePC supports 800×600 as a virtual scrolling resolution. The new 9″ model is 1024×600. They’re both a weird aspect ratio. #
  • SXSWi Podcast recordings are starting to show up on the page/feed: http://2008.sxsw.com/blogs/podcasts.php #
  • At the Day Stage for the simulcast of the Frank Warren (PostSecret) keynote. #
  • Has the Frank Warren keynote started? Nothing yet here at the Day Stage. #
  • Nevermind. It’s started. #
  • Regarding yesterday’s keynote, “When we say SXSW Interactive, we MEAN interactive.” :-) #
  • Frank Warren has us all transfixed, enchanted. This is great stuff. He’s a wonderful storyteller. #
  • @sourcecode yes, the EeePC 9″ model bumps the physical screen size AND the resolution. #
  • “All of us have a secret that would break your heart, if you just knew what it was.” – Frank Warren, PostSecret #
  • Live proposal on stage, during Frank’s “come share a secret”. She said yes. #
  • Holy crap. Go Google “frank warren twitter”. One of my tweets from a few minutes ago is the first result! *boggle* #
  • So what is Frank Warren’s Twitter username, anyway? ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • At the “don’t abuse your fans” session, surrounded by my twitter friends (@billpearson, @ejacqui, @turoczy, etc.) Hi! :-) #
  • I have no idea why, but I get the vibe that Jon and Heather Armstrong don’t like me. They seem like the type who make fun of guys like me :( #
  • I’ve never met them, so that’s not fair, I know. Just my insecurity, I guess. #
  • @ejacqui the only person who DOESN’T know Ars and think you’re cool is Ron May. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • I love Heitor Alvelos’ Portuguese accent. It’s so Iberian! :-) #
  • @billpearson you’re right. It was unfair of me to even say anything. My brain-to-twitter filter is leaky. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #
  • “Stop seeing the final product as the final product.” Hector Postigo on mashups and remix culture. #
  • Kathy Sierra on the mic in the griefers session. Let me reiterate that I think what happened to her TOTALLY SUCKS. :-( #
  • Got to meet Kathy Sierra! Said Hi, gave her a Moo card with a cute pic of me and Emma, told her we support her and miss her. #
  • The best part? Kathy Sierra knew who I was, from our online interactions! w00t! That totally made my week. :-) #
  • @memathews I actually missed her panel yesterday. Met her after a session on griefers today upon which she commented. #
  • And a little birdie might have over heard that another little birdie might return to blogging soon. :-) #
