MeFites attending or presenting at SXSWi 2013? February 9, 2013 7:41 AM   Subscribe

What are people's plans for SXSWi this year? Anyone presenting? Can someone more on top of things than me organize a meetup? Looking forward to see y'all soon.

South by South West Wisconsin?

(I know I know, but that WAS my first thought)

What does the Wi stand for?

Or is that just a typo?

Interactive (to distinguish it from Music and Film)

I am in town but not doing anything other than hiding during SxSW - I could have sworn someone was just talking about a meetup but maybe it was on Twitter.

(I'm personally fine with leaving this here for the moment, since SxSW is an event people travel to from all over and the location-specific nature of IRL sort of works against it for this kind of thing.)

Sorry to cause confusion. The little 'i' is for 'interactive' (see link above) as opposed to the Music or Film portions of SXSW. See previously.

I'm going! We had a great meetup last year that someone local organized.

The "i" stands for "interactive", dfriedman. Interactive runs the week before "original" SxSW.

Another local, but not going to interactive. Also game for a meetup (and hence posting here since one might get planned in comments).

I'd go to a meetup, not really doing anything at SXSW except seeing a few movies.

I'll be there talking about Zombies, Run! and would be happy to meet up, chip in for pizza, &c &c.

I will be there! Happy to go to any sort of meetup.

Just moved here & haven't met any other local MeFites yet, so I'm game for a meetup. Still not decided what parts (if any) of SXSW I have interest in.

I'll be fleeing town for the music segment of SXSW this year, but will gladly attend & help organize anything prior to the 11th.
