SXSW 2011

I went. I saw. I overindulged on food trucks. I also survived several nights of this: It was my first time, and with all things late pass related, the prevailing wisdom is that the best days have passed, despite SXSW 2011 being the most attended in all of the event’s 25 years. Assessments of shark […]

Tardy WMC 2010 recap

This year the family reunion vibe trumped the hustle, and I’ve come to appreciate that a lot more. I don’t know how much of it is the economy, a shift in the industry or a waning interest in WMC but attendance was noticeably lower. Last year I noted a recession effect and this year my […]

Thanks, Pittsburgh

Back from Blighty (and Spain)

A recent jaunt across the Atlantic yielded some nicely accomplished missions, stronger alliances and much needed R&R. I even engaged in a bit of tourism that was absent from previous trips. Caught up with the Uprock fam and was an eager and well-received guest at their recent Sunday night holiday jam. Straight off the plane […]

WMC 2009

For everyone who didn’t follow my Twitter feed or check out Fusicology’s breakdown, here’s a much delayed final word on that one thing that happens after SXSW. This was definitely the recession WMC, but the actual effect was less severe than I anticipated. Attendance was lower all around but the folks that did come were […]
