I just got back from SXSW in Austin, and let me tell you, I had the time of my life. Thank you to everyone who went to my surprise birthday party... it was the party of a lifetime. I would also like to thank everyone who took some time aside to chat with me at SXSW... in specific (like the link whore that I am): Jeffrey Zeldman, Matt Rea, Carole Guevin, Joshua Davis, Heather Hesketh, Steve Champeon, Jeffrey Veen, Heather Champ, Derek Powazek, Lance Arthur, Matt Linderman, Scott Benish, Josh Kneedler, Darleen Scherer and Steve Bowden, Alison Headley, Susan Nixon, Michael Nolan and the rest of the New Riders crew, Peter Merholz, Stewart Butterfield Nikolai Nolan, Ryan Gantz, Jared Dunn, Pableaux Johnson, J. David Eisenberg, Samir Shah, Chris MacGregor, Matt Haughey, Sooz, Mark Bernstein, Meg Hourihan, the Linkdup crew, and most of all Billy Hutchison for orchestrating the party! I know I missed several people, when I get the list from Sooz, I will add everyone in. And thank you to everyone who has emailed me today on my birthday to wish me the best!
