South By South West (SxSW) – Who's Going?


For two years in a row now, I’ve missed out on going to SxSW. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it’s pretty much the largest technology / music conference in North America, and it happens once a year down in Austin, Texas. Last year, while watching everyone talk about it online, I decided that I would go this year and check it out.

South By Southwest — Help!

I’d happily trade some photography skills or web skills in return. Drop me a line if you can hook it up. Thanks!
