SXSW Interactive

I’ll be in Austin next week representing Sub Pop at SXSW Interactive. If you’re a clever designer, a rubyist or are simply passionate about music (and are planning on actually being at the festival)— let’s talk! Just leave a comment or email me at webmaster.

PS – Anyone know if there is a schedule online iCal or vCal format? I’m not really interested in adding my the events one-by-one. Am I just missing an obvious link somewhere? It wouldn’t be the first time.
