So this will be my first year attending the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas and it’s already promising to be a really special event.
The Library of Congress blog, which I helped get going, is a finalist for the blog category of the SXSW Web Awards. AWESOME!!!!!
The fun doesn’t stop there. My friend and renowned designer Samantha Warren is also a finalist in the blog category of the SXSW Web Awards for her blog Bad Ass Ideas.
But wait, there’s more. Ficlets, the collaborative story telling Web app written by my friends Kevin, Jason and Cindy, is a finalist for SXSW Web awards in the CSS and Community categories.
The winners will be announced the evening of Sunday March 9th. Whomever wins, the first celebratory pitcher of beer will be on me.
