SXSW Interactive Day 0
Mar 11 2010
This evening I went down to the Austin Convention Center to pick up my badge for South by Southwest Interactive and check out the Big Ass Twitter Happy Hour at Frank Hot Dogs and Cold Beer. I got the Chicago dog and a cranberry vodka because I don’t drink beer. The hot dog was pretty good but the drink tasted well nothing like cranberry or vodka. I got there kind of late and realized that since I’ve been so out of the social media scene this past year and rarely tweeted, that I really didn’t know a whole lot of the new twitter crowd. There were a few of us early adopters there, and I caught up with them before getting my badge. I thought briefly about going to the Austin High Tech Happy Hour but by the time I drove by where it was, the crowd had thinned so I drove on by and came back home. It was an early night.
SXSW interactive doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, but they opened registration up tonight and it’s a good thing because the line was already quite long. So it was an uneventful Day 0. Tomorrow should be more interesting since I have some business meetings set up for the morning, more people I know would have flown in, the bloggers lounge should be open, and I will get to drink a caipirinha and eat some cheese bread on the roof top of Fogo de Chao (Brazilian Churrascaria), where the Austin Technology Incubator hosts the invite only third annual Entrepreneur’s Lounge.Author: Aruni | Filed under: entrepreneur, entrepreneurship, social media | Tags: austin technology incubator, entrepreneur's lounge, sxsw interactive | 1 Comment »
