SXSW: Not Going

Nagas procession at Kumbh Mela, HaridwarImage via WikipediaI was on the phone with a friend earlier in the day. She is going to South By South West for the first time and she is excited. SXSW is in the air.

I have never bought a plane ticket in America. I guess she was trying to convince me to come along. I guess it is too late to sign up for panels and things. But you can go to the parties in the evenings, she said. They are free.

I get the impression South By South West is the Kumbh Mela of tech. More than 10,000 people show up. From all over the country.

Maybe next year. This year it's a pass.

I think it is a good idea to have a tech startup in motion before you show up. You don't want to just be a fan to the honchos. You want something going on for you too.

I am bootstrapped. I can't afford a trip to Texas right now. I am just fine, happy in New York City.
