I'm so happy this photo was approved for my badge. I'll be on the VIDEO BLOG BUSINESS MODELS panel on 3/14, along with Andrew Baron, Josh Kinberg, and some dudes with venture capital-backed businesses. Yeah, I think I'm the little guy in the pool.

HOT NEW PANEL: DEMOCRATIZATION OF THE MOVING IMAGE with Andrew + Amanda from Rocketboom. Cool! Vloggers, come to this and reprazent. And you can check out a "high-end video phone for SXSW vlogging. I might try to get one, but only if I have the rights to post the video on my site too.

Think you'll be there next year? I swear I'll get an early bird badge. I have no excuse not to. Not that I have an excuse for not attending this year, considering I live here and all ... but we'll ignore that.

well, you don't need a badge to come out for a drink. :-)
i have no idea where i'll be.... it tends to be very crazy, but shoot me an email if you're free.

BUSINESS MODELS, so I guess this means your buying the drinks....

I wrote the "image auditer" app we use to crop and approve (or reject) uploaded badge photos. Your pic was right on the threshold of rejection, but I figured "hey, this guy seems cool, and I'd recognize him if I saw him." On a side note, I was supposed to turn over the auditing process to the SXSW registration department, but frankly, I've enjoyed it too much, so have hogged the job for myself and the other code monkey to do.

I hope we run into each other at some point in the coming ten days, Chuck! I don't know how many panels and such I'll be going to, but I do have the Film Blog discussion marked down again this year - maybe our paths will cross there? This year I'm sporting the chrome dome look, so look for a pale shiny scalp...that'll be me.

If you see one movie this year, go see my friend Joe's feature LOL. You'll like it a lot. I think.
