We're cancelling the March Breakfast because, we're in heavy prep mode for SxSW Interactive in Austin. Steve Phipps and I are road-tripping it the next day. In fact, this year I'll be co-presenting a session on SoLoMo (Social Local Mobile) with a long-time business friend from Ogilvy.
We'll have you along in spirit and look forward to sharing our findings in April and during the event (but we won't bombard you).
All going well, we'll be meeting up with an RVSX road trip bus from Chicago that's stopping for lunch in Memphis next Thursday. We'll post more details as we approach.
SxSW is different every year. Steve and I will be staying in a place found on AirBnB.com (that we've talked about during some of our "sharing economy" presentations at the Breakfast). There will likely be about 12,000+ people from the industry at SxSW Interactive, and more to do than time for. As you might imagine, we're tickled silly to be going! "South by" is composed of Film, Music, and Interactive. Because Austin can't accommodate Music and Interactive simultaneously, those segments of the event actually happen back-to-back.
You at SxSW 2013
We want all of you to consider a group trip in 2013. It's a relatively quick 10 hour roadtrip, and with as much info as you absorb in five days, you need the roadtrip to decompress and say "woah!".
Thanks everybody! More info in the next week.
