I’m making the pilgrimage to Austin for SXSW Interactive again this year, but no crazy Worst Website Ever antics this time. But I will be speaking at a couple events, if you want to get together:
Lane Becker moderates a lineup of web geeks who started projects during the last bust, with some advice and lessons learned from our past success and failures. I’m very lucky to be on the lineup, along with the wonderful Ben Brown, Michael Sippey, and Jane Mount.

Every year, writer/comedian Heather Gold brings her live, interactive talk show to Austin to interview artists, musicians, coders, and writers around a theme. This year’s subject is “Something From Nothing,” a loose conversation about inspiration and the creative drive, with CD Baby founder Derek Sivers, Huffduffer creator Jeremy Keith, Adaptive Path founder/Emmett Labs CEO Janice Fraser, singer/songwriter Amber Rubarth, and me! The Heather Gold Show is a small part of the huge Plutopia EFF-Austin party, a three-stage art and music extravaganza featuring Bruce Sterling and Ian McLagan from The Faces, so should be fun. Free admission for SXSW badge holders, $10 for everyone else.
