Chicago has been beautifully sunny for us so far. We had a great cruise down the river onto the lake with fascinating architecture commentary.The Apple store almost did its magic on Clare, she wanted an iPad but I held her off buying until I had done some research about UK compatibility. Perhaps Chris Brogan will have some advice at Sobcon? Seems there has been snow in Calgary while we have been here, hope it goes away before we get there so we can get everything done that we need to. Things are moving forward .. We have had one viewing of our house (after one day on Market) so might be buying our Canadian house sooner than we thought!
This place is great. The film and music folks are much swankier than the interactive nerds, but I expected that 🙂
Had a nice catch up and breakfast with Darren. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to get sim cards to make our calls/data costs cheaper, though seems like we might have been given duff info by the AT&T sales guy …
Stroke of luck with my SXSW pass, only 10min wait (have been up to an hour for others). Hotel shuttles pretty good when I finally managed to work out how to get my wristband.
Everything seems organized chaos, but a great vibe. There are so many people I am having trouble working out if I recognize faces or not. I have only been blanked once so far but managed to have some great conversations already.
What with the jet lag and the sun I am already drooping, considering having a nap.
All this and I haven’t been to a panel yet 😉
So far so good, and this is only part way through day one 🙂
Sadly our trip down under is coming to an end, but we are still enjoying our travels. We are now in Melbourne and are looking forward to exploring this cool city. Cool is a good word for it, the place seems great but is under half the temperature of Sydney which had reached almost 40c before dropping to rain before we left! We thought we had left the need for coats and wooly socks at home but hopefully the weather will turn for the better today so we can hit the beach before meeting up with Darren and his wife for a meal tonight 🙂
BlogWorld has been great so far, some excellent sessions, and met some awesome people (some of whom are featured above!).
The best part so far has to be finally getting to meet my friend and problogger book co-author, Darren Rowse.
Finding it hard to believe the rest of the trip can top that, but willing to give it a try 🙂
