I'll be headed to <a href="">SXSW</a> this year. I'm half-excited and half-apprehensive. I'm excited to hear about technologies and the way they impact everyday lives, a good break from the constant discussion about profit margins and return on investments.
The more ambivalent part about going there is the human interaction aspect. It'd be wonderful to be able to put faces behind the blogs I read, placing a whole new level of reality atop the virtual personalities. Yet at the same time stepping out from behind my monitor is rather daunting. One need only look at Tribolum with Mozilla and see the obvious lack of technical expertise. On an aside, I'd much rather be viewed as lazy than incompetent, but in this case I probably deserve both tags.
Being probably the only Asian there doesn't help either.
I gotta learn to relax. A lot.
