  1. This is the first time i am reading about sxsw. I tried to read about it at the site. But the site is not all that first-time-visitor friendly.:-(

    Could someone do a ’sxsw in fifteen words’ for a common man like me?

  4. 1) Yes
    2) Most Any
    3) Yes
    4) Yes
    5) Yes, but my friend who’s flying in is the one you’d want to meet. He produces the Basic Brewing video podcast – it’s been featured on RocketBoom as well as being one of the top video podcasts on iTunes for many months. BasicBrewing-dot-com.

  6. 5.) My company, http://www.musicplustv.com, an online music television network, will be at SXSW. Please let me know about your event. I potentially can get either of our co-founders to talk at a panel. We’ll be there from the 13th – 18th.

    Also, let me know about your BBQ get-together.

  8. Yes, any, yes, yes, no.

    As a local, my preferences in order are:

    Lockhart, TX: Black’s for sausage, Smitty’s for brisket, and Kreuz’ Market for the legend (the first two did it for me, so I’ve never managed to make it there.) It’s about a 45-60min drive and they close at 8pm. If you’re driving that long just to get to the Salt Lick, drive another 15 minutes or so – the BBQ in Lockhart is far superior.

    Ruby’s (29th & Guadalupe, north of the UT campus): Not to be confused with Rudy’s.

    Iron Works (1st/Cesar Chavez & Red River)

    Green Mesquite (S. Lamar & Barton Springs Rd.)

    Artz Rib House (S. Lamar)

    Salt Lick (Driftwood, TX) or Salt Lick 360 (Loop 360 just south of the bridge) if you want a cloth napkin.

    Those who prefer vegetables or need a break from BBQ are directed to Casa de Luz (buried on Toomey just north of Barton Springs Rd.) It’s macrobiotic but they do a great job.

  12. Since everyone is hyped about Salt Lick and it sounds like there are a lot of free Sunday nights, how about a SXSW pilgrimage? 7:30 at Salt Lick? I’ll have a car. (and would look forward to meeting anyone who’s up for it…)

  14. Laura and I will be in Austin Thursday through Thursday. We might have a car. Would love BBQ but a 35 mile drive might be a stretch.

    Iron Works is very nice and walking distance from the convention center… It does get busy, though.

  17. Hi Robert:
    So far I’m free Saturday through Monday evenings.

    BBQ – Yum. Let’s definitely do barbeque. Just let me know when. I’m at the Hilton across from the Convention Center.
    Car – ‘fraid not.

    Video Blogger – Yes, with the unique perspective of a screencaster. I’d love to do a panel with you. We can talk about how fun it was to do the photowalking/photoshop shoot.

    Not sure of a barbeque place, but last year we went to a very cool outdoor beer and burger place called Hills Country Cafe, where I got to swoon over Kris Kristoferson up close. I think they’re having the Texas Heritage Music Association awards there on Sunday.

  21. I live in Austin, have a car, and love the Salt Lick.

    I’m the leader of Social Media Club Austin, and I can help find a qualified video person for your panel. I already have someone in mind who would be great. E-mail me for specifics.

  24. I’ve heard about the Salt Lick for years, it’s supposed to be amazing – then again, I’ve heard ALL the BBQ in Austin is good!

    5) Sure, I work on the video side at http://www.imeem.com in business development – what is the panel topic?

  25. Hey, Robert — I have a friend who moved to the south for the bbq. I am very envious of him. :-). The beer is good in the Northwest but the bbq does not match.

    I can get a car. Easy. I’ll drive. Heh. Saturday evening bbq? How good would that be? II’ll bring along the M-Audio micro-track. Love that little gem. Video creation, distribution? That’s what we are all about at SplashCast.

    See you at sxsw! Are you there Friday? Come and check out the panel I am moderating “The Real Story Behind Snakes On A Plane” Rumor is that the panelists will be “in character.” Free snakes at the door! Hey, what about “snakes on a bbq?” :-).
