South by Southwest is going on this week in Austin, and I don’t get to go. Having gone to college in Austin, the festival always fell on the same week as Spring Break, so it was easy to participate in the festivities. It’s such a magical week of parties, movies, music, and general debauchery. However, due to financial circumstances and the whole being an adult with a job thing, I am not there. So, I have decided to bring South By to me, and I will be hosting events at my house all week. See below for details:
rettiwT: A discussion on the art and benefit of tweeting in reverse.
