SXSW 2009 Kicks Off, Alex Bogusky in the House
SXSW Interactive kicked of Friday and if you've ever been, you know it's just, well, HUGE. There's no other way to describe it. A friend once dubbed it "the internet in real life." WHich is very true. EVARyone is here. Even Alex Bogusky. Yes, Alex Bogusky who did a panel on....um....bikes or something. We didn't get it really.
Anyway, there were only a few session the first day. Most of the action was in the hallways as everyone was registering and mingling and getting to know the IRL version of the people they've known online for years.
Oh...and commercial interruption (totally unplanned I promise)...I just met the CEO of blurb, Eileen Gittens, in the press room. The Killed Ideas project I'm working on involved blurb which will publish the work after I choose the final 50 killed ideas in April.
Back to regularly scheduled programming. Oh screw that. All you want are the picture, right? Well here they are.
