Why all the exclamation points!?
Because I’m excited, that’s why. I’m here in Austin Texas for the “South By Southwest Interactive”:http://2006.sxsw.com/interactive/ conference. The excitement and the buzz, the energy are palpable.
I’m also looking forward to meeting some online buds (or just some guys I respect) in person: “Nathan”:http://sonspring.com/, “Ryan”:http://www.artofmission.com/, “Cody”:http://codylindley.com/ and “Nathan”:http://nathanlogan.com/.
Oh, and by the way, black really _is_ the new black.
*Update* _(and some name-dropping):_ They’re all great guys. Had lunch with a whole bunch of awesome people, including some of the “famous ones:” “Dustin”:http://www.dustindiaz.com/, “Jonathan”:http://www.snook.ca/, “Bryan”:http://avalonstar.com/, and “Peter”:http://peterflaschner.com/. Great conversation — the whole web industry feels energized and fresh, as if anything is possible.
