I’m off to SXSW

Tomorrow morning I will embark on a journey that contains of 12 hours on a plane (actually, two planes) that will eventually take me to Austin and the SXSW Interactive Conference. I'm not traveling alone, but with my colleague Daniel H, so at least I will have some company. There will be days of meeting old and new friends, a chance to finally meet people I've known for a while in person; of learning, networking, partying and chilling. There will also be bowling. Also, one thing I definitely have to do is to meet up with Carl Camera and have a burrito with him, still blushing from the nice words he once said about me. But Carl, please, let me pay! :-) Whatever happens, telling by the weather forecast at least it seems like I won't be freezing. :-) Naturally, I will miss Fredrika and Emilia so much it will hurt, but I think this is an opportunity that I can't miss out on, and I hope they can manage for a week (question is: can I?). Please don't expect live blogging or any of that crap. I'm there to have a good time and relax so don't expect any post here within 1½ - 2 weeks. Till then: enjoy!

    Safe travels, Robert. I'm looking forward to the conference, and being able to personally thank folks who have taught me so much.

    hejsan

    vill bara säga villken underbar ordenrunt resa. Jag drömer om att få göra samma sak =). kul att någon gör det man vill och drömmer om, finns för många som bara pratar och alldrig masar sig iväg. ha ett bra fortsatt liv och om ni får barn ta med dom överallt låt inte dom "förstöra" för ER

    // mvh carl

  • Have a safe trip and enjoy yourself :D

    You're not going to post pics of all the fruit booties at SXSW on flickr are you..? Man you guys ( and Molly ) are so into that waste of bandwith.

    "Here's me and Andy. here's me ans Simon , here's me and Roger" my God that gets old. I swear the only reason for all these incessant conventions is so you can post these loser pics' on flickr. Why don't all of you just satrt a conference pic website and so you can lick each others boots and be so proud of your little cliques. You're all like a bunch of 3 year olds putting pics' on the refrigerator so mom can be so proud.

  • Aren’t you home yet? ;)

  • Robert Nyman says:

    Everyone,

    Thank you for your comments, I'm home now. :-)

    Douglas,

    I never seemed to find you there!

    JamesAngleton,

    If you had taken the time to read my writings, you would know that I'm not a big fan of name-dropping. But if you don't like whatever I write here, there's a really simple solution: just don't read it! :-)

  • Did you get me a postcard Youngman?

  • Robert Nyman says:

    Robert W,

    I'm sorry, no. :-)

  • I don’t know, you cannot seem to get the right staff nowadays— anyway hope you’re glad to be back after all that really hard work.
