Austin Roll-Call + SXSW

So I just got back from Austin, TX, because I spent almost all of last week at Austin GDC. I love Austin but rarely get a chance to go, so it was a treat to see locals like Sara, Damion, Brian, and Brandon, as well as catch up with folks like Joe, Jane, Austin, and Bill, who were in town for the conference. I even talked to Kim for about 15 seconds on the streets of Austin.

Got to go see King of Kong with some folks from Midway and MIT/GAMBIT. That was an awesome film. Believe the hype!

I also entered my business card into two drawings, and won both of them! The first drawing netted me a bottle of hot sauce, but in the second drawing I scored a free pass to SXSW Interactive! This is great, because I’ve never actually attended SXSW in any way. It’s usually during GDC, but it’s not this year. So I’m psyched.

Probably the most exciting takeaway from Austin GDC was that there were about five different talks about metrics in one way or another. I’ll write more about that on the Orbus blog, though.

Great hanging out with you too, brother. As for SXSW, congrats! I’ve been three or four times now, and if I go again next year I’ll introduce you to the maddening crowds. :) (Assuming, of course, my particular maddening crowd also returns.)
