On the Road

So, since apparently it’s the thing to do these days… I’m posting from South by Southwest in Austin!

I’ve never seen so many laptops on a flight. The plebs worked on their powerpoint presentations and excel spreadsheets while journeymen tackled javascript consoles and other various forms of coding. I stated my own claim to nerddom by blitzing through a couple hundred feeds in Google Reader’s clumsy but well-intentioned offline mode.

The grand prize has to go to a gentleman touching up some beautiful b&w photos in Apple’s fancy-ass Aperture: a program I may have deemed worthy of a purchase (or another term with a p) had I not been so thoroughly scared off by the putrid stench of iPhoto.

Until next time.
