So far, 2011 has been hair-raisingly exciting, a bit daunting but a lot of fun. And next week promises to be yet another of those weeks.
Like I've done for the past three years, I'm going to SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas. The biggest twist this year is that I'm not travelling alone, but taking Andrew and Anna with me! Hopefully, the event lives up to the tales of fortuitous meetings, massive BBQs and equally large margaritas I've told them.
Austin is a lovely and very lively city, especially when thousands of people descend from all over the world to talk about tech, listen to bands or see films together. We're going to SXSW to fill out brains with interesting stories, meetings and information, to meet fellow Mac developers, community managers and interesting people from all walks of life. If you're going, let me know on @vero on Twitter. I'll be bringing some Alfred schwag with me and will be wearing a very fetching black and purple bowler hat, so I shouldn't be too hard to locate!
If you aren't going to SXSW and don't want to hear me waffle on, you can mute me for the week. ;)
