Yes, I did not bring my real camera to SXSW this time, which was a real treat for my back. So I took video clips instead.
Promise you won’t sue me for any Blair Witch style-induced nausea – because most of this was shot holding the camera over my head, behind my back, or in other unmentionable places, so considering all that, I think it turned out freaking awesome, OK? Because, also, if you followed my tweets, I basically didn’t sleep for 5 days straight – Yes! Another point in my favor.
In a nutshell, my main takeaways from the conference: location is like really, really, really important (which we knew already) and SXSW has become massively overcrowded. Which prevented me from attending several panels that I really wanted to see, which will make me think hard about even attending next year. (Yeah, right.)
The rest of it? The networking and seeing friends and collaborators and not sleeping? That stuff? AWESOME.
NEXT! You know that amazing Mom 2.0 Summit I did not get to attend, but I did send artwork for their gallery show? Well, those prints are up for auction right now, with the proceeds benefiting Haiti.
And here is where you go to bid on mine, and all the other fantastic contributions.
On to the REAL point of this post. Announcing the winner of this month’s Greeblepix contest, meaning the person who gets bragging rights for the month, and more to the point, meaning the receiver of the $250 camera rental from Pro Photo Rental. Woot!
I absolutely love this shot. I love all the surprising things in it when you look close.
Congrats to Nate Anderson!
