I'm registered!


Every year I hem and haw. Should I go to South By Southwest? Last year I was a panelist, so the decision was made for me. I started off on the wrong foot (strep throat!) but had a blast once I got better. I also went to Apple Computer with Rocketboom, and was caught up in the utter insanity of RB's first video ad. Oh man, what a ride.

I didn't propose a panel on time this year, so I'm just a free agent. But I can't pass up the chance to hang with Steve Garfield and Zadi and Casey and the usual lovely suspects. Oh! Here's something odd: None other than Odin Soli is on the list of speakers. You know, Plain Layne, the most notorious fictional blogger of all time (I'd say). Here's a few pics of my interview with Odin for Blogumentary.

If you're going to SXSW, see you there!

I wish I could come so bad, but between money for the trip and shooting a wedding that weekend to pay for "Video on the Net" the following week, I don't think I'll be making it.

Erica: High 5ive returned!

Clintus: Oh crap, I forgot about VON conference. Ummm. Well if I get rich I'll see you there. :-)

So glad you decided to come! It wouldn't be the same w/o you. I'll be there covering for abc and Casey and I will be on a panel together... I def want to see what that weirdo Odin has to say...one of my favorite parts of blogumentary was his/her story fo' sure.

Oh goodie, this should be fun. I'll be there too. Staying at the Capital Hilton.

And do you think we can finally ask Odin who the pics of Plain Layne really are of? Cuz I still wanna track her down!

Posted by: Rex at Jan 15, 2007 3:58:27 AM

no doubt!

Can't wait to see you, Chuck. You're getting a hug the size of Godzilla.

I am still an undecided voter on going to South By Southwest Interactive.

I am leaning towards going.

I think I still have until February 12 to register (if I want to make on the List).

Your take on attending.
