Come Hang with Brian and Sonia in Austin!

Austin Skyline

I love and dearly miss my former hometown of Austin, Texas. Luckily, each March thousands of webheads converge on the heart of Texas for the unofficial “Spring Break of the Internet” at South by Southwest Interactive.

I’ll be wearing my SXSWi 2000 t-shirt just to pull rank. :)

This year, things kick off earlier than usual. I’ll be speaking at the revitalized PubCon South on Thursday, March 12th, about headlines that rock. Sonia Simone flies in Friday afternoon for the kickoff of SXSWi, and just about everyone and their blog will be there.

Plus, here’s something special. I will be personally facilitating the first ever public appearance by the elusive Chris Pearson, my business partner for the last 3 years across multiple projects, most recently the Thesis Theme for WordPress.

Apparently, Chris is also quite a hit with the ladies. I’ll either be running interference or charging cover for an impromptu Chippendale’s room.

So, let us know if you’ll be in town, because we’d love to meet up with Copyblogger readers. Follow @copyblogger on Twitter for drunken spontaneous updates of location, events, and marital status.

  1. Unfortunally I live in Brazil. I really would like to go that and see your speech, but…

    Regards,
    Monthiel

  2. A little bit of a freudian slip on the t-shirt comment? One letter makes a whole lot of difference in English. :)

  3. Yeah, that was unfortunate. Mad at Sonia for tweeting it back to me, and I still didn’t get it because I read it the way I thought I wrote it.

  4. I thought the t-shirt comment was a joke. I thought it was a reference to the Wii for some reason.

    You could have pulled it off! :)

  5. No, it’s encouraging to me. Glad to know I’m not the only one who buggers up copy occasionally.

  6. I am not one for speeches, but I am an old hand at hanging out. Here’s hoping we get to do some of that there stuff.

  7. “I’ll be wearing my SXSWi 2000 t-shit just to pull rank. :)”

    That made me laugh (hee hee).

  8. I loved the t-shit line too.

    I will be in Austin. Hope to see you guys!

  9. Hey Brian,

    I live in Austin and I’d love to come out and see what you have to say about some Killer Headlines. I have it in my calendar to be there at the PubCon South.

    Look forward to meeting you.

  10. And who said blogging is for geeks? Sounds like quite a party.

  11. Bah, everyone says SXSW is their favorite conference but getting there sure is expensive from down here in Aus. Maybe next year…

  12. Sounds like the Copyblogger crew is a great team to be around to demonstrate life in the Clouds. Oh wait, we mean Cloud Computing. If we weren’t busy communicating with beta testers, we’d love to fly down to SXSWi just to meet Chris Pearson and to ask him to demonstrate Thesis in a webtop environment. We’ll have to live vicariously through Twitter this time and wear our Go Everywhere T-“Shirts” while day dreaming about the conference ;-)

  13. T-shit. LOL. I remember once when I was a Microsoftie doing a roadshow which had a script that called for the presenter (me) to type ‘t-shirt’ in a Word document before doing something whizz-bang with formatting.

    I lost track of the number of times my fingers skipped over the ‘r’ – and in front of thousands of people. Just thinking of it makes my toes curl.

  14. Hey Brian,
    Myself and a couple co-workers will be rolling into town in an RV looking to share the experience with as many people as possible. We’ll be following along with you on twitter and hope to catch up. In the meantime, we’d love to have you “in the RV”. Check us out @newcitysxsw

    Hope to see you there

  15. Hey Brian — I never knew you were from Austin. I’ve been an avid reader of this site for a while now, and I’m excited that you and many others are coming to town!

  16. Where’s your car dude? Hope you found it! Glad you were able to make it to dinner, hopefully we’ll have an even crazier dinner at AdTech. Then again, maybe a not. That’s going to be pretty hard to top.

  17. I live near Beverly Hills, quite a drive, but would love to attend if I did live closer.

    On a side note, tell us how the BBQ is! I’m craving some good Texas BBQ :)
