It’s just the best most wonderful week of the year for the internet industry, isn’t it? I mean there are cooler conferences (DLD, Next Web). There are more exclusive ones – Summit Series (who just bought a mountain! WTF!), and the mainframe TED, which is sorta the Sparc Supercluster or Cray of tech conferences. Monolithic, kind of old school but still pretty awesome. SXSW Interactive, now entering its 13th year, is the big one. It’s the closest thing the tech industry has to an E3 or a CES or Cannes or Outdoor Retailer. It is, essentially, the Internet’s trade conference. Everyone goes.

I’m increasingly excited to go SXSW: Interactive next week. If you’re going to be there, say hi. If you know anything about Austin, tell me what to do.
