My main goal at SXSW is to see people.
People who I have connections with online, but only see once a year.
People who I know online, but never have met.
People who have read my book, Get Seen.
People who I don't know.
People who need people are the luckiest people in the world.
Last night was lots of fun at two events, the first was the SuperMeetup! at Maggie Maye's where I met lots of filmmakers and showed them how to stream live for a laptop.
We did some interviews and and I think the lightbuld went off for a few people. That's me and Dan Berube.
Wiley Author Party
Next up was the Wiley author party at the Cedar Door. It was such a beautiful night and the Cedar Door is a great venue for a party because it's both indoors and outdoors. I met so may nice people and enjoyed talking with everyone.
Here's me and Amanda Congdon.
It's always great to see Amanda. This photo reminds me of the first time we met in NYC, in January 2005, when I became the Boston correspondent for Rocketboom.
Such a long time ago.
Come See Me Today at 1:10
If you are at SXSW, come see me today at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore on the 4th floor of the convention center. I'll be signing my book, Get Seen, at 1:10 - 1:30 PM. Books will be available for purchase.
After that I'll be tweeting out for Where in Austin is Steve Garfield?, so make sure you are following me on twitter.
