In about 2 weeks I will be heading off to SXSW Interactive. I look forward to meeting and talking to lots of exciting people in the industry.  I am also going to try and pull together a UI designer meetup group. Last year only a few people were able to get together. I hope this year we can get a lot more!

While at SXSW I hope to blog about the classes I’m attending and many other items of interest. I can only hope the network is capable of sustaining 5000+ people all in one small area using every last spec of bandwidth. Last year and the year before it died. Here’s to wishful thinking

Here are a list of the panels I plan on attending (subject to change): If you are at SXSW and don’t see anything panels you like at a particular time be sure to check out the “DAY STAGE” Cafe.  There are usually book readings, and other great conversations going on. Since they are a smaller format you can get a lot of face time with the author and ask some questions etc.
