Suburban Assault

Suburban Assault In Austin for SXSW

with one comment

In case you were wondering about the lack of posting the past few days, it’s because I’ve been in Austin for the SXSW Interactive Festival. My agency, Launch, sent my copywriter and me (for the second year) to learn about the latest online trends. It’s a non-stop fusion of seminars, networking and learning that’s going to take a while to process – but well worth it.

There are some exciting things to see in Austin:
– Bikes EVERYWHERE!
– Bike lanes were everywhere.
– Pedicabs seemed to outnumber the taxis around the convention center. Sorry, I didn’t get any pics – but I’ll try later this morning.

Even with all the excitement of SXSW, I still have a few regrets:
– I miss, miss, miss my family!
– I did not have time to ride a bike. However, we have been walking a bunch.
– Missing the Bike Hugger Mobile Social ride and party at Mellow Johnny’s. I was here for work, so I had to keep my time work related.
– Missing the arrival of the SXSFixed group to Austin. I really wanted to cheer them on as they arrived, but again, I was there to work.

Here is a link to some of my ‘extra’ flickr pics. We’ll be heading back to Dallas later today.

  1. I’ve noticed as well how nice everyone is and the Austin CarShare. Pretty cool idea.

    Oh and I miss my family a ton as well.
