Noteworthy, SXSW edition
~ 12 March 2007 ~
Yes, I’m totally bummed I couldn’t make it to SXSW due to illness. Thank you to all who have sent well-wishings. I’ve heard from Jason and Rob, as well as attendees, that our (their) session on Saturday was a success. I had no doubt they’d be able to pull it off without me, despite getting news about my illness just 24 hours prior to speaking.
Anyhow, below is a collection of stuff noted in the last week or so. Please enjoy responsibly.
You can thank Jesse.
