If you’ll be in Austin for the SXSW Interactive Festival over the next several days, be sure to say howdy. I’m attending the geekfest/party/conference for the first time. I’ll be there with my chum, the inimitable and mysterious Dr. VanEsselstyn, soaking up ideas, trends and an alarming number of tacos. I’m looking forward to meeting you and a bevy of other creative folks along the way.

You can stalk me on Twitter or chase me down during the daytime panels by following my picks on Sched.org. (Winnowing the 150 panels is daunting. How to choose John Gruber versus Jason Fried? Jim Coudal versus Andy Baio? Between superhero-themed panels “How Manga Explains the World” versus “Scope Creep and Other Villains”?) At nights, I’ll be roaming the parties, both official and unofficial.

And seriously: If you see me, say hello. Would love to share a few words about content management, design, or even better, where to find Austin’s best barbecue. Don’t be shy; if we find ourselves together at an open bar, the beer’s on me.
