Let’s Meet at SXSWi!

Posted By Darren Rowse 12th of March 2010 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

SXSWi.pngAs this post goes live I’ll be in the process of arriving at SXSW Interactive in Austin Texas.

I was fortunate enough to at SXSWi two years back and it was one of the best conference experiences that I’ve had – so I’ve made it a priority this year to return.

My schedule is pretty open. The main thing that I’ll be doing is a book reading this Friday night. I’ll be talking about some of what Chris and I have included in the 2nd edition of the ProBlogger book (due out next month).

The book reading is on at 5pm, Friday 12 March on the Day Stage. I hope you’ll come!

For those of you involved in the Third Tribe there is a drinks/meetup the next evening (on Saturday 13th from about 5.30pm) at a bar called ‘Lovejoys’ at 604 Neches Street (2 blocks north of the convention center).

Note: I originally thought that my reading was on Saturday and we’d do one after the other…. but I messed up the time so the book reading is Friday and the Drinks/Meetup is Saturday. Sorry for the messing around 3rd Tribers.

Other than that I’ve got a pretty open few days and am looking forward to checking out a few panels and keynotes and doing as much networking as possible. If you’re at SXSWi I’d love to meet you – feel free to come up and say hi any time!

    Hi Darren,

  • It looks like a nice event but I couldn’t join.

  • All i can say is happy trip Darren, wish you good luck!

  • Have a safe trip Darren. I hope we all will have chance to meet you personally some day :)

  • I really wanted to go this year, but I it really crept up on me, because I was planning on going to Internet Retailer.

  • Have fun

  • Make sure to get your fill of beef while in Texas. Texans are very carnivorous people (and I mean that in the nicest way).

  • I’ll definitely going to be there. I’m looking forward to meeting you. You’ve been a big influence over my blogging life. Are you going to read from the book or just take questions?

  • I love SXSW, my band got to play there last year and it was one of the funnest experiences of my life, the straight 32 hour van ride home wasn’t as fun though haha. We didn’t end up going this year but I’ll be there next year for sure, hope you return then!

  • I’ll look for you in the Bloggers’ Lounge, Darren! I’d love to meet you in person.

    Kind Regards,

  • For me is to far maybe 5.000 km so have fun ;)

  • Unfortunately I couldn’t get to the event. I could have been a pleasure to meet you in person. Perhaps sometime in the future. Keep us posted with your future meetups!

  • I liked what you posted here but I must say that it can be improved, although it is good but some more effort can get this blog to the top. And the theme is good.

  • if you don’t like it, we will stop it. but SXSW, my band got to play there last year and it was one of the funnest experiences of my life, the straight 32 hour van ride home wasn’t as fun though haha.

    we should have some more thing like this.

  • dsi

    I’m pumped you’re coming to SXSW this year. I’ll be buzzing around the parties so hit me up on twitter so we can catch up!

  • That was missed opportunity. You can say it was misfortune.

  • Looking forward to the book reading and getting to meet you!

  • Been researching this most of the day this was very helpful thanks.

  • Looking forward to it Darren. Will be there to cheer on a fellow Aussie.

    Thanks for your article.
