Heading to SXSWi this week
I am heading down to Austin on Friday morning for the South by Southwest Interactive festival.

There is a great group from Louisville going: Jason Falls from SocialMediaExplorer.com, Todd Earwood and Nikki Key from DailyIdea.tv, Nick Huhn and Melissa King from Yum!, and Joshua and Melanie Rosenthal from Sprigley. I am actually on the same flight with Jason, so it should be a fun trip to Austin.

There are quite a few people I plan to catch up with while there including Eric Marcoullier, founder of MyBlogLog and IGN.com, Eric Weaver of Edelman Digital, Jeremy Owyang from Forrester (did a phone interview with him for Forrester's report on Online Community Best Practices, but we've never met in person), Robert Scoble (we met at the BlogHaus during CES 2008) and the crew from SXSWm.

I'll be Twittering throughout the event, so follow me here.
