SXSW namedropping

I’ve been jotting down a partial list of the people I’ve been meeting (some old friends, some for the first time) in the halls and at the parties here in Austin. I’m sure I’m forgetting various cool somebodies and I’ll update the list when my memory coughs up new names (and when I go through the stack of business cards piling up in my hotel room).

    Thanks for the namedrop, Christian! 😉
    FYI, my URLs are http://lotusmedia.org (personal), http://OrangePolitics.org (local politics blog), and http://NetcentricCampaigns.org (network-centric advocacy).

  2. Heath Row Says:

    I’m googlable at Media Diet. Or use the link below.

  3. xian Says:

    Thanks, guys. Updated. I was gonna get around to it, honest!

  4. nancy white Says:

    You name dropper! 🙂
    I’m only sorry we never sat down for a chat. Having food poisoning sure slowed me down and I did not get enough sit-downs with friends! NEXT TIME!

  5. Frances M. Says:

    My, that’s a lot of people, I’d be forgetting names after the second day — as the crowd waiting outside roars “pho-tos! pho-tos!” [please, it’d be great to see some of the “I’m here and you’re not” shots like the ones you posted last year].

  6. j. brotherlove Says:

    Name dropping is tacky. Well, unless it’s my name you’re dropping, of course. Then it’s way cool! Thanks!

  7. Tikva Morowati Says:

    Christian! What a great idea! I only made it through half of the people. There are so many. I’ve got some good reads ahead of me! Thank you!
    P.S. David Pescovitz’s link needs to be fixed, and my last is Morowati.

  8. xian Says:

    I’ll fix David’s link and the spelling of your last name, Tikva. Sorry about that!
    j., your site is very cool! i like the way it transcends the usual blog all-the-stuff in one big stream style.
