One of the best things about this year’s SXSW is meeting up with old friends. At usually goes like this:
- You say something about SXSW on twitter/Facebook/whatever.
- Your friend sees it
- Your friend replies/DMs/messages you, “hey, I’m here, too! Want to meet up?”
- There is an exchange of determining where you are and who wants to meet where.
- Meet up and talk about old times.
I caught up with an old colleague I haven’t seen in 6+ years who is now running a political big data consultancy, a friend from high school who works for Pixar and was there to premiere something at SXSWFilm, an old client that I haven’t seen in 3+ years who now works on a startup–THAT was great!
