Anyone in Austin next Wednesday and Thursday?

In exactly a week I'll be flying to Austin for my first SxSW. My session JavaScript: the Big Picture will take place on Monday at 4:05pm in Ballroom F (whatever that may be; I assume a gentle SxSW employee will patiently explain where to find it). See this entry for details on my panel.

I'll be in Austin a few days before SxSW starts, and I'll leave a few days after it ends. Which brings me to my main point: will anyone be in Austin on Wednesday 7th and/or Thursday 8th and feel like meeting up? If you do, please leave a comment below. I'll be staying in the Driskill Hotel (not sure if that matters, but anyway).

Well, I don't have any plans to attend SXSW, but I do live here. Not sure if you had people in mind when you posted this, but...

I read your book awhile ago, and will be at your SXSW presentation. I'm looking forward to it.

I believe the 8th is a Thursday.

I won't be there until the afternoon of the 9th (Friday)...otherwise, I would love to meet up. I'm looking forward to your session either way!

If you're talking about march, 8th is Thursday. Good luck.

Thought there would be loads of folks wanting to buy you drinks when you come to town.

I also live in Austin but do plan on attending SXSWi and your session on Monday. Looking forward to it. I'm open for dinner or just lending some time for sightseeing. The Driskill is a great hotel. Right in the heart of downtown. And just a few blocks from the convention center where SXSWi is held.

I can also get some folks from the Refresh Austin group to come along. Might be best to just hang at a local watering hole and talk.

Yes, that seems like the best idea. I think we should just arrange to meet up somewhere on Wednesday or Thursday; I'll publish it and we'll see what happens next.

Being the local, I suggest that you select a venue.

PPK, I work right next to the Driskill and would be happy to lead the charge to take you out to lunch, since Paul has dinner/happy hour covered. How about gathering some folks for an invasion of Las Manitas?

Sure, fine. Shall we say Thursday around noon?

Thursday at noon it is. Meet you @ Las Manitas, otherwise email me.
