What if there was a gathering of the leaders, speakers, visionaries, teachers, mentors, and founders of the web? What if there was non-stop, extensive discussion of the pressing issues of web development and practice? What if this meeting of peers had the nicest people you will ever meet, every one of them so friendly and accessible that it makes you appreciate humankind? What if you were given the opportunity to meet with the very people who shaped your education and development in your most formative years? What if this magical event ended too soon?
I wanted to say goodbye, at least for now, to all of the wonderful people I met at South by Southwest Interactive this year. I feel really privileged.

You are a wonderful person. I am so glad I got the opportunity to meet you. Good luck and I’ll see you around.
Thank you so much! It was wonderful meeting you as well.
from the looks of it, your exit list has grown a lot! 🙂 thanks for all the great pics and recaps, Matt… i missed out on a lot! did you ever get my voice mail? in case you didn’t get it, i called to let you know where i was… just in case you wanted to meet up.
was good to meet you at SXSW (we had a brief wikiTalk…). Via dashes.com I found this link
thought you might find interesting…
I felt much the same way. That conference could be a full week, easily.
A full week? Yes, but I can only miss so much school… Besides, seven days of SxSW would make one weak.
Meeting you was one of the best things that happened at SXSW this year. You are the future. Carrie says hey.
Funny, I was goingto say the same thing about meeting you; it was really one of the highlights of the conference for me.
I realized, once again, that I’m lucky to live in Houston with someone as wonderful as you. These people only get to see you once a year – yet you are so accessible to me! It’s all about accessibility…
Hmmm… I wonder what amazingly stupid things I could have said to Zeldman if you had introduced me to him too. Although “CSS makes my eyes bleed” might have been enough.
It was great to meet you Matt. Your enthusiasm is inspiring and contagious. Thanks for the ride to the party on opening night.
