It’s SXSW week

All the rich people are off at TED this week, but all the cool geeks are really going to SXSW. If you’re really rich and a cool geek (some are so lucky!) then you’re probably flying your jet from TED to Austin on Saturday or Sunday and hanging out. I’m not cool or rich, but I’m going to SXSW anyway cause they put up with me there and don’t charge me $6,000.

But, what this means is I’m just snowed under with tons of ScobleShow videos, emails, BBQ’s to plan, and all that.

So, I’m just gonna shut down the blog until next Wednesday.

Don’t fret, there’s still plenty of Scoble all over the place. My video blog is active (new Photowalking session at SLAC coming soon, plus interview with Sharpcast). My link blog is up to date and I’ll keep posting the best stuff every day there. My Twitter page is hyper active (whew, what a firehose!)

Anyway, if you’re coming to SXSW, say hi — I’ll be in Austin Friday night through Tuesday night. I’ll be at Salt Lick on Monday night eating BBQ. Wanna go? Drop me email at robertscoble@hotmail.com.

My cell phone is 425-205-1921.

I love getting invites to the best parties. :-) In the meantime, see ya next Wednesday.

  1. I love the fact though that TED Talks are made public on the Internet (thanks to Chris Anderson for that). It’s really inspiring stuff, and an eye-opening view into the type of work that is helping change some small but significant part of our world. I salute cool geeks and SXSW and I wish I could attend TED but don’t diss it just because you can’t get in.

  4. If you are near the Austin Convention Center, check out the Iron Works BBQ. The Pork Loin is awsome!

  7. Hey Robert, I’ll be in Austin too. Giving a panel with Gabe Rivera, Kathy Sierra and David Parmet on Tuesday at 5pm….

    See you there, hopefully…

  10. I’m guessing that if you follow through on all the requests in these comments you won’t have much time to do anything else.

    But I’ll jump on the bandwagon. “While You’re There,” will you puleese be an evangelist for software and other tech companies to install better sales and customer service options?

    They look at the line items in the budget, but I know of a LOT of intangibles that affect the bottom line in major ways that have no line item.

  13. You have an ‘About Me’ page that leads to your own Wikipedia article that says you’re a technical evangelist which sounds like it’s a new sort of religion on the Internet because of the word ‘evangelist.’ That’s cool. What’s weird is, when I subscribed to the comments, it says something like ‘buy cialis’… What the fudge is a cialis?!? I guess the Akismet spam protection isn’t working for comment feeds.

  16. David: more than half of the world lives on $2 a day. We’re all rich by that comparison. But it costs $6,000 to go to TED. Not for anyone who isn’t well funded in some part of their lives.

  21. Hey – you hardly need to be rich to attend TED. I’m here and I’m not rich by any stretch of the imagination. But today, the first day, was loads of fun. Met Forest Whitaker. Heard great talks by Hans Rosling, Murray Gell-Mann. Saw Jeff Hahn demo is latest version of multi-touch and it’s better than “Minority Report” this time. Like last year, TED helps me discover new musical talent and the last perform was Raul Midon. Amazing. It’s a great event!

  24. I am envious. SXSW seems like the ultimate party conference, with all the really cool folks going. I must admit, though, that the events seems not exactly up the typical podcaster or blogger’s alley. Is it really all about the parties?

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that!
