SXSW, Day 2

SxswIt’s been another good day of programming. Making Your Short Attention Span Pay Big Dividends was fun and rather validating for me. Short attention span: it’s not a bug, it’s a feature! The Designing for Global Audiences panel had it’s moments. There were occasional juicy examples… when you say “I need it at 5 on Friday” to someone in India, that pretty much means Monday or Tuesday. Much of the presentation meandered, though… a couple times I caught myself wondering “man, is he ever going to say anything? Online Advertising: Is It worth it was interesting, but they never really addressed the actual topic or answered their own question. Fictional Bloggers was delightful. Odin Soli talked about his years writing a personal blog detailing the daily life of a bisexual woman, grew a huge audience, and was eventually outed. I met Liz Henry at the BlogHer event Friday — turns out we peripherally know each other through the world of Science Fiction fandom. She had so much to say – it’s unfortunate that this was one of the short (1/2 hr) panels – it really deserved more time. I’m eager to read lots more of Liz.

Tonight it”s the SXSW Awards Cermony, at which the Dewey Winburne award is given out. Dewey was a visionary and a friend of mine. Last year the award went to Dale Thompson, with Austin Free-Net. I’m proud to say I’m a co-founder of Austin Free-Net.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your site. You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Thanks!

    12 Ekim 2011 Saldırı diyorlar fakat hangi marka kendine defacto’yu rakip olarak görüp böyle bir saldırı yapsın. Ya da kim o kadar mail adresini bulup sırf markaya kıllığına böyle bir gönderim yapsın. Bir de uygulama Pazartesi yayına alınmış, blogger ve sosyal medyacılara ya da sektörde yer alanlara gönderim için bir gün sonrası planlanmış. Ayrıca görsel vb. de uygulama kimliÄŸi ile çok örtüşüyor. Yapmaları gereken hatalarını kabul etmekti.

    My go-to travel shoes are from Land's End–they are a Mary Jane style I suppose, but they're sturdy enough for hiking, good for the beach, waterproof and dry fast
