Finally, a break

Done with South by South West for the day, I think– or at least long enough to take some downtime. In this brief audioblog I discuss Galacticast, Jet Set Show, Steve Garfield, and some other stuff I really don’t remember.

I wish I could say that the first day has been awesome, but right now I think I’m dealing with a cavity, which just detracts from the whole thing. Also, having so many people around is somewhat overwhelming. I prefer little gatherings, I think.

Later on is the Ze Frank party, which will likely be filled to the brim. See you guys tomorrow!

    you’re going to a ze frank party?

    no fucking way.. he’s just about my favourite dude on the internet (y’know… aside from you of course…)

    He’s too big for his original mographics and pointless flash game fans now theshow’s been so successful of course, but we still love him…

    man, I’d kill to be a fly on the wall when you guys knock skulls together…

    Hey Julien,
    Nice talking with you. Thanks for the shout out. I enjoyed your podcast.

    I loved the lonelygirl15 panel. Best panel of SXSW so far. Really great insights into how they started and how the show is evolving. It was not even really a panel be a case study of the show. I think I like that format better than panelists who know what the prepared questions are going to be. I wonder if the panels are going to be available on the net later. I hope so.

    Other panels were not so great. One put me to sleep. PodCamp has spoiled me. Although the PodCamp have panels too, I like the more free form way things are organized. Panel / Audience is frustrating when the people on the panel aren’t that interesting and you know that the people in the room are.

    I like too. Look for me tomorrow. I want to hear more about what you are doing with Kathy. I’m working with Nina Simonds on It’s a food, health, lifestyle vlog.

    A big part of the fun of SXSW for me is being able to see others vloggers I’ve become friends with over the past few years. We only get to see each other 1 or 2 times a year.

    Julien – I think you have a really honest style and a really good voice. And thanks for the kind words about JETSET and our panel on Saturday. Steve Garfield sent me a link to this episode.

    One of the things I love about this time in the world of online video is that everyone knows each other and everyone is so supportive of each other. I want this time to last forever, and I am really afraid of what it will be like when people are making money and competing with one another.

    For the time being, all we can do is enjoy what’s happening. It’s not often you get to be part of a genuine revolution in media.
