Team Viget Visiting Austin for SXSW 2008
I have to admit that when the due date of my 3rd child was determined to be late February of this year, one of my first work-related thoughts was "I wonder if I'll be able to make it to SXSW?" After last year's trip to see Squidoo take home the Best Community award, SXSW became a must-attend conference in my book. I'm happy to report that my in-laws will provide plenty of love and support on the home front while I join Rob, Jim, Erik, Jackson, and Samantha from here at Viget to make the trip. It just so happens that six of us from Viget make a perfect bowling team, so when our friends at nclud mentioned they'd be taking over the bowling event this year, we wanted to help. We'll be a beer sponsor, which means that if you say hello we'll buy you a beer. Pretty simple. Right before bowling, we'll be cheering loudly at the SXSW awards ceremony again this year. The newest member of the Viget design team, Samantha, is one of the finalists for her personal blog, Bad Ass Ideas. The Blog category recognizes "sites that revolutionize the power of publishing by providing regularly updated content of a personal or professional nature." As for the rest of the trip, we'll be taking in as many of the panels and social events as we possibly can. We're all looking forward reconnecting with old friends and making some new ones. See you in Austin!
