Well, I’m off again to South by Southwest Interactive. This is my fifth year going, which seems hard to believe. It’s also the fifth year that I’ve put together a music compilation. This year’s is called “Let The Distance Keep Us Together” and is named for the leadoff track, by Spoon‘s Britt Daniel. If you are coming, and want a copy of the CD, I’ve got a limited supply so make sure you track me down and ask me for one. I’m staying at the Hampton Inn again this year, and sharing with SXSW noob Neil Lee. My AIM handle is “JamesSeamus” if you want to chat while at the conference.
