That's right, I'm ready to work. If I go to zero parties, but get connected with even more people that matter and are being innovative in a down economy, then we will have succeeded.
My goals for attending SXSW 2009 this year are simple:
- Participate in the "Beyond Aggregation" panel
- Get introduced to new companies and services
- Meet up with peers in social networking and tech
- Come away with great story ideas
The panel is one I am particularly excited about, and has, in my opinion, with the exception of myself, some of the most-interesting characters presenting at SXSW09 this year.
Topic: Beyond Aggregation -- Finding the Web's Best ContentAs you can see - a packed lineup from one of the Web's best tech blogs, two intelligent services aimed to find relevant content, and the most-widely known tech aggregation site. Not too bad for one panel.
Day: Monday, March 16
Place: Hilton A

When I participated at BlogWorldExpo last fall, I was a little surprised at the low amount of blogging I found about the conference in general. While, yes, people were tweeting about it and using hashtags, these microupdates are largely in the ether. For SXSW this year, I plan on doing my part to keep the full blog posts coming. Hope to see you there if you're going. Hit me up on e-mail, or of course, call my cell at 408 646-2759.
