Wow, Austin is on fire! (I'm here as we speak - it's so warm!) The SxSW festival is amazing and one of a kind. The attendees have amazing backgrounds in film, design, interactivity, music and more! Nowhere else in the world can you find such a diverse set of events across independent film, music, and the internet. And did I mention that Austin is just a really cool town with fine folks all over the place? Hint hint - think about going next year.
sweetriot was lucky to be featured at the SxSW Web Awards Party, the Spout booth, and the Pluck booth too. I've had a chance to share cacao with so many interesting people, and the good news - they love it! I just walked into a room a few minutes ago, and the people stopped me and asked if I had more of that 'amazing stuff.' Walking down the hallways of the Austin Convention Center, I also have heard people saying, 'Oh, sweetriot.' and 'There goes that cacao girl.' :)
I only wish I could stay longer but alas work calls, and we rioters are gearing up for another big show in Anaheim, CA in just 10 days! I'm getting ready to head out to the airport but I'll be sure to tell you a bit more about speaking with Craig Newmark of Craig's List and Jason Kottke or Kottke.org. Are you at SXSW or in Austin?...let us know...send a comment... Special thanks to Bjorn for inviting me to speak and to Adam and Pluck for hosting me while in Austin.
