ConvergeSouth: Get it On...


With ConvergeSouth less than a day away, can I go ahead and get my geek on? My humble burg is already filling with folks of the cyber-variety: laptop lords, narrowcasters and scores of haunted auteurs - all in town for a one-of-a-kind tech summit of which I'm proud to be at least tangentially connected. This year such web heavyweights as Jason Calacanis, Anil Dash and Elisa Camahort will helping to oversee the making of The Fifth Estate - that bustling sector of the media landscape that has little to do with six o clock newscasts and moldering newsprint. But we're getting ahead of ourselves; what I really like about ConvergeSouth is the stimulating chichat between sessions, the live music my conference badge gets me into and the world's most sinful bar-be-cue, courtesy of one David Hoggard. Over the next couple of days I hope to catch up with Dan Conover, learn a few video tips from Tom Lassiter and witness the sartorial splendor that is Joe Killian. While I'm at it, I'll check in with The Fantabulous Coon Brothers and leave a dollar or two on the bar. Oh - and then there's Soni Pitts - a lady I'm collaborating with on my dream project, but have yet to meet in person. Yes, there is much happening this weekend in Greensboro and if I can manage to, I'll blog about it along the way. Otherwise, look for things to return to normal Monday, when the toxic stream of photog anguish will once again flow unabated. Now, if you'll excuse me I have to go charge a whole bunch of batteries...

This has nothing to do with anything, but I came across a good blog that's not in your links. No, I don't run it, but it should be in there...
