Next week we’ll be hoping on a flight to Austin for the South by Southwest Interactive conference, of course we’d prefer to be driving there :).
This will be my third time heading to Austin to attend the biggest interactive conference in the world. Can you tell I’m excited?
I’m even more excited, because I’ve teamed up with Kurt Daradics to host a Core Conversation called RoadTwip. This will be a casual, open discussion about integrating social media into your road trips, and connecting offline and in person with your online friends. Please be sure to add it to your schedule. We hope to see you there!
Kurt will talk about his experience with friends, Jolie O’Dell and Jonathan Dingman from their RoadTwip across much of the country last year. It’s actually how I met them! There’s a great story about the trip in ReadWriteWeb as well.
I’ll be speaking about our recent CES Bound Las Vegas road trip, and how we tapped into location-based social networks to stay connected with you along the way. There’s a fun interview with Andrew Fowler and I on Newsvetter today.
If you’re a road trip expert or novice, we’d love for you to join this lively discussion. You’ll walk away with new ideas on how to hit the road, stay connected and build relationships along the way. It’s going to be fun.
See you next week!
