The SXSW Effect

Back on track next week.

by j. brotherlove

It’s been a minute, right?

I’ve spent most of the time getting adjusted to my new gig. Also, I just got back from SXSW. But you don’t want to read excuses, do you? SXSW was an incredible experience (again). You can read my SXSWi 2008 WrapUp on my other blog. You do know I started another blog right?

After fighting it the past couple of years, I’ve accepted that visitors expect black and/or gay material on this site. I started another web presence to give me a place to write about things that fall outside of that box. Mostly.

That’s not to say there isn’t a hip, gay presence at SXSW (queer geeks represent!) In fact, photographer Rannie Turingan put together a video for his contribution to the SXSW event: 20x2 v. 8.0: “What’s the Difference?” that speaks to us. Enjoy!

20 x 2 : What’s The Difference? from photojunkie on Vimeo.

Next week, I return with the usual postings (unless I get a better offer).

You’ve had another blog since Dec. and this is the first I’ve heard about it? I haven’t been that out of the loop, have I?

Well, as one of those who sees almost technology as a bane to the world of humans and still miss the days of real letters and radios and face to race real time, I hope you keep this site up and running, your point of view is one I do enjoy, as I like how you go from topic to topic so easily, and, varied!

But, can understand that you need to feed your inner geekness :). This I know as a bookish nerd, who just has no clue about anything related to a computer, cell phone or anyhting else I can’t control!
