Friday 03.12.10 – Friday used to be the Day 0, but now there are a full set of panels & parties, so welcome to the new SXSW Interactive Day 1.

Thurs 03.11.10 – Austin is lovely today. Tons of folk already here. While a very large line to register at the convention center, it was very efficient.

Dog Tusseling, or Why Does Kimchi Hate Me?

Scruffy & Magnus

Wed 03.10.10 – Today was the day I was too be running around errands, finishing up details, laundry, packing, etc etc etc, in preparation for a 6am flight Thursday morning to Austin, Texas.
The whole day today was derailed by a nasty light phobic migraine that kept me in bed until around 4pm. It is all the fault of kimchi and my innate pre-travel fridge frugality. I always feel the need to not waste any food that might go off while I am out traveling and I try to make all kinds of interesting dishes before I depart as to not have to throw anything out.
This is a bad impulse. I have now gotten sick 3x just before flying. Silly me.
There was a large quart jar of kimchi from AR supermarket that was in the final dregs for a couple of weeks now living on the top shelf of my fridge. Why I felt compelled to eat the remainders I don’t know, since I already know that kimchi older than a couple of days makes me tummy sick & triggers headaches. Le Sigh.
So, today’s photo was of Scruffy & Magnus wrestling while I was trying to recoup from my ill-advise kimchi consumption.
Tomorrow, super early, I am off to SXSW for Interactive. See you there!

Dear Nokia, Re: SXSW

Dear Nokia,
As a 12 year vet of SXSW, here are my tips and tricks for a great SXSW experience, particularly my food recommendations.
Don’t miss the Kickball game at Palm Park on Sat. March 13, 2010 at 10:30. More info at
While I already have my SXSW Interactive Badge & plane flight, I would love to win a white Nokia N86 to take lots of great photos & video at SXSW (see min 3:30 to end of video).
Less than a week away folks! It will be fun! ;o)
Ms. Jen

Stick a Fork in Me, I’m Done. Part II

Every year since March of 1998, with the exception of one (2002), I have gone to SXSW be it Music, Interactive, or both. Every year since 2001, with the exception of one (2006), I have gone to Punk Rock Bowling in Lost Wages.
This year I am taking off, not from SXSW as the rubric should suggest given it is 2010, but from Bowling. I just can’t do everything, and this week after months of working hard on a web app and a few other projects, I had to make the decision to trim something. Something that takes lots of social energy, creative energy, and some money. And that something was Bowling.
This year BYO Records and the Sterns are ramping up the event to include a Music Festival, I say – Bravo! I hope it goes well for the team, for BYO, and for all the lovely folks who will be bowling and merry making. I will not be joining the weekend long party.
By the graces of the Grace, in May, I will be in London or the like as it is time to make a transition.
Yes, I am officially job searching. If you have room on your team for a kick ass, intelligent, creative developer & mobile user experience professional, let me know. I am looking to join a great company, make a difference, and relocate.
Wish me well. And to all the Bowlers, have a grand good time!
