Within days everyone at Hop Studios (that’s right, all three of us!) are heading for Austin, Texas, for the annual SXSW Interactive Festival. Last year we had a great time, met tons of people, had some BBQ and made some excellent connections with companies. We’re hoping for more of the same this year.
SXSWi is five days of panels and parties, and the conference for savvy Web 2.0 geeks across North America. We’re planning on reconnecting with EllisLab, Blogads, Moxie Design Studios, E.Webscapes, The Blog Studio, and lots of other folks. I’m even doing a book reading on Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m.
