SXSW, I’m coming

After weeks and weeks of pondering and evaluating and re-evaluation my monetary situation I decided to go for it and booked my flight as well as registration for this year’s SXSW Interactive Festival. I just didn’t want to sit here and watch from afar as so many great people have so much fun in Austin. This is the place to be when you’re in the web developlemt business, or so I’ve heard. Just look at the confirmed speakers list and tell me this is not an event worth the travel from the Old to the New World.

It might be unfair to many of the other great speakers, to just name a few of them. But I have to release my excitement about the prospect of meeting people whose books and/or blogs I’ve been reading. First of all there is Molly E. Holzschlag. Her book “Web by Design” was my very first web design book and it not only got me hooked by its content but also by the witty and straight forward way it was written. Now my bookshelf prouds itself by holding more of Molly’s writings.

I could go on for paragraphs on end, writing about some of the speakers at SXSW Interactive, but instead I’ll present you my “Top 10 list of people I look forward to seeing/meeting at SXSW Interactive” (not really in any particular order):

Looking forward to learning new stuff, meeting interesting people and sharing experiences of life and work.

If you’re also going to be there, please drop me a line.
