Some photos from the first few days of SXSW Interactive. Please click through to the flickr photo to add tags and comment as necessary. Eventually (and with your help) I will add more detail/descriptors.
Waking up to this story in the NYT made sent a chuckle of disbelief across the land. Perez Hilton, the ocd-celeb blogger with the funny, unshowered hair and the hastily Photoshopped, illegal photo usage, is now Mr. Lavandeira in the New York Times? In an uncorroborated report that he’s soon to be given his own record label by a major?
The talks are preliminary, and an agreement is not certain, but Mr. Lavandeira could receive $100,000 a year as an advance against 50 percent of any profits generated by artists he discovers and releases…
First McCain and now this — the Gray Lady really is on the fast road to fade to black. They didn’t bother to mention Lavandeira’s tendency to print rumors from unnamed sources as fact — take for example his guaranteed reports of Fidel Castro’s death last year.
I had a tricky time getting the htrack microformat to work and eventually gave up (on second thought I think this was due to some issues with the Firefox 3 Beta I was testing it on). However, I now see that there is a WordPress Plugin that might make it even easier.
