Going to SXSWi


It looked like Amber and I weren’t going to be able to make it to SXSW, but thanks to our American Express Membership rewards points, we are able to get dirt cheap flights. With the right planning in advance, I think we can get our plane tickets next year for free.

In celebration, I downloaded about 5GB of music from the music festival that’s happening. Despite the fact that I’m not going to the music portion, it’s still cool to have over 1,000 mp3s of bands that are converging on Austin for five days. Here’s a link to a writeup I did about it:

Got 65:40:22? The 2009 SXSW Music torrents are here.

ps. If you’re headed to SXSW and want to help someone go, Nadia has set up a blog SXSWi or Bust where she is raising money to send her to SXSW for as little as $2 at a time. She’s a smart person and deserves to go, so help her out if you’re able to.
