Hi all: SO FUN to have the kick off to “On the Road with iV” here in Austin Texas with the official opening of SXSW Interactive.  As you can imagine, the rock stars from social media are here and its been great to see and hear the latest of what we can expect from these entrepreneurs over the next year.

Case in point- first morning of SXSW, the night AFTER the launch- the whirlwind of meetings began.  8:30AM meet with one of my Advisors, Tim McClure from GSD&M.  Then on to meeting with attorneys- then- rush back to the hotel for a 10 minute meeting with my producer, Lyn Graft, Loic LeMeur and his wife/ partner Geraldine LeMeur all before hitting the airport.

Geraldine told us a bit about LeWeb ’09 being held Dec 9-10 and Loic of course was getting Seesmic ready to launch its FACEBOOK client. http://bit.ly/LqEbS 

Lots going on- my flight out got cancelled so I ended up getting to stay and extra day and see more of SXSW.  If you haven’t seen already- check out the Twitter feeds from your favorite social experts.  There is a good chance they are here and you can follow the updates, launches and even party stops for all of them!

See you next year at SXSW ’10!
