It’s Almost SXSW Time
If you go to the blogger.com home page, you will see a blurb about the Blogger folks coming to Texas for SXSW. They are planning on having some event a Club De Ville during the great yearly festival.
I always think of SXSW as a music festival and nothing more. I’ve forgotten that the film aspect of it is becoming almost larger than the music and that the interactive festival is catching on as well. Once upon a time, a few years ago, I was invited to attend the interactive festival. In fact, they were encouraging me to come. They were actually calling my phone and doing everything short of begging me to come. My how times change. Now they don’t even want me or my kind at the interactive festival. No, they would prefer web rats with blue hair who can ride electric skooters around the place while wearing excessively baggy pants and overly dark mascara. They want folks who use words like l8tr to complete sentences in their IM devices at this year’s conference. Yes, that’s who they want most, not the likes of me. But still, it’s fun to remember the good old days, even if they weren’t all that good, it wasn’t all that long ago, and they lasted scarcely past a day.
I’m still a bit miffed at blogger today because yesterday it ate my blogger entry. It seldom does this, so I shouldn’t stay all too angry with it, but yesterday really got me. It’s my own fault I suppose. I tried to load another page without clicking on the little browser button to open up a new window. When I hit [back], I ended up back at the blogger “New Post” page by all of my content was gone. Erased and dumped into the giant bit bucket in the sky. It wasn’t even that good of an entry, rather it just kind of pissed me off because it went away so easily without saying a proper goodbye.
Speaking of proper goodbyes, I believe I shall post this before it gets eaten again, and then I have to contend with your angry emails protesting the lack of new postings on my weblog. Man, I really hate that.
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
