Photo Highlights from South by Southwest Interactive 2009 (SXSWi)

Below are some photo highlights from SXSW. You can find more coverage of SXSW on my blog, plus many more pictures on Flickr (soon) and on Facebook here and here.


Frito Pie, a Texas staple


Doing lunch with Joe Kutchera


In the Blogger Lounge at the Convention Center with Michelle Shildkret (no PCs allowed)


Greg Verdino puts down his crayons and Steve Hall stops ranting about ads for a photo


Kerry Hay and Simon Ruparella, not long before Simon taught me how to order haggis in a UK restaurant


Jeff Pulver and Alan Weinkrantz escape the Blogger Lounge


Shashi Bellamkonda ponders what meat to eat next at Fogo de Chao


Sarah Townsend and Tessa Horehled, joining me for the Whrrl party

Signing a shoe of protest from an amputee that does – ironically – stand-up comedy


Lara Lebeiko signs the shoe. My message: "Kick butt."

Rohit Bhargava juggles rocks at the Belmont; thousands of SXSW&;ers flee for their lives (actually he did a fine job, as you can tell from this shot)


After this, a new law was passed banning taking pictures of yourself in the rear view mirror while driving


Fun fact: Austin is the capitol of Texas; not so fun fact; this used to be George W. Bush&39;s office


At Lamberts, this Niman Ranch ribeye slathered in mustard butter with a brown sugar glaze is one of the best cuts of meat I&39;ve ever eaten

No, this is not an error – I just wanted to look at it again


Craig the coder climbs a tree… I started to think maybe I&39;ve been at SXSW a little too long

A socially sensational way to end the show, at Pure Volume with Steve Hall, Baratunde Thurston, and Lara Lebeiko

    Oh gee. Can’t get over that Niman Ranch ribeye. Mustard butter with brown sugar glaze? Wow. Thanks for the pics. I always think of Austin in the spring-time…

    They carmelize it on with a creme brulee torch. One of the best things I’ve
    ever eaten.
