SXSW 2009 – Hope to See YOU There

South by Southwest is upon us, and while i’m likely not going to be there for 9 days this time, I will be there for Interactive, Thursday thru Tuesday. Amid all the excitement, panels, parties, and more parties it can be difficult to meet up with everyone I’d like to, so please hit me up if you’re going to be there so we can connect. I’m especially interested in discussing upcoming projects I’m working on at Live Earth and the many ways you can get involved as a partner, friend, or otherwise.

Below is the overbooked schedule of events that i’m interested in but won’t be able to make it to without cloning myself (via sched.org):

Your best bet, as per usual is to find me via twitter and/or brightkite.
