Unofficial Geek Guide to SxSW-Interactive 2006

It looks like Austin’s own David Nunez is up to it again, he’s updated his guide to getting the most out of SXSW for 2006 to motivate us all to be more friendly, less clique-ish and generally open to getting more out of SXSW. Heck, he’s even put his personal, mobile phone number up so you can call him for directions, a dinner invite or to get together and chat (but not for bail money I assume). (How about your instant message IDs too David?)Check it out and be sure and leave him a comment on his blog.

Let a thousand orange smileys bloom!

The Power to Predict

This looks like an interesting book from the Harvard Press: The Power to Predict.

What I hope to find upon reading it is that a business can be more competitive by being more data driven than their competitors, be it from extending Knowledge Management ideas to fully forming a company around leveraging knowledge or from using data to help establish a conversation with customers about expectations and higher levels of service.

OK, this is the big one.

Come one, come all to the Annual pre-SXSW get together for anyone doing Web design, development, Information Architecture, and anything else SXSW “Interactive-y”.

Whether you live in Austin or are in town early for SXSW, do join us on this Thursday, March 9th from 6-8 at the Cedar Door at 201 Brazos Street in downtown Austin.
