SXSWi is, as Guy Kawasaki puts it, probably the most youthful, unpretentious web and tech conference of its kind with very few, if any, suit entourages walking around. I love it, spend half my time sitting in the lobby of the Austin Convention Center chatting with people, and ALWAYS wear jeans. It all kicks off today and runs through next Tuesday. I’ll be blogging about it here and post some audio/video as well.
For those of you in town who like jazz, I’ll be performing with some great Austin acts in the evenings. My downtown gig schedule, all within blocks of the Austin Convention Center, is as follows. Hope to see some of you.

* Sunday 10th – w/ Gabriel Santiago & John Fremgen, 9pm-12 (Brass House, 115 San Jacinto)
