Deep in the Heart of Texas
At first light this Friday morning, Rob, Rollo and I will be traveling down to Texas for South By South West (or “South By” as I am told people in-the-know call it). This marks my first trip to Texas, and even though I can’t partake in the BBQ, I am still excited. I will be speaking on a panel entitled “Does Design Matter?” at 10am on Monday in room 17AB, joined by other distinguished people, Jeffrey Zeldman, Kelly Goto, and Joe Clark. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll be there. I just hope the four of us get the tumbling and juggling act down in time.
I am anxious to get away from the stupid snow and the weather is looking mighty fine down south. I’m really looking forward to meeting all those Brits, playing some kickball, seeing some good films (especially some of those midnight horror movies, sobriety permitting), sitting in on some speeches, and finally putting faces to many sites.
I have hired a few people people to look in on this site while I am gone,. You know, make sure there are no unmentionables lingering about, and to present the second series of guest photography in the Daily Photo section.
If you can’t make it down to South By, I’m sorry, I don’t think there’s really a home version of the game you can play. If you are in attendance, please come up and say hello, because I would be happy to meet you. I am approachable and only punch people in the throat when provoked. Rob will also enjoy hearing your best Stan impression.
