SXSW: It's a wrap
And I'll never be able to show my face in Austin again.

I'm sooo, sooo sorry!
I'll never be able to show my face in Austin again, and I'd like to take this opportunity to apologise publically to...
- Jon Hicks for (probably) snoring
- Asking Dan Cederholm if he ever gets fed up with people asking about the Wired redesign
- Asking Ryan (Brian) Sims if his new Bright Creative site was going down well
- (Accidentally (honest)) kneeing Derek Featherstone in the nadgers
All that's left to say is an enormous thank-you to everyone who made me and the rest of the Brit Pack sooooo welcome in Texas.

Come back anytime. I will wear a cup :D
(that's a hunk of plastic that protects your nadgers since they probably call it something weird over there)

No apology to me for asking if I felt pigeon-holed by my work on the Firefox logo? Thanks, thanks a lot.
Don't you hate messing up design firms' names. Nuebix is a bitch of a name to remember (as is just watch the sky). I probably won't forget it now that they've launched the big noob
sorry, it's http://thebignoob.com

Andy, it was great to have (finally) met you. I never would have taken you for a nadger-kneer, but -- you learn something new everyday!!

I'll take getting asked about Wired over getting "kneed in the nadgers" any day :-)
Really great meeting you, Andy.
Wonderful meeting you Andy, though I do wish we'd run into each other again after the Buffalo Billiards thing. Ah well, there's always next year.
Speaking of nadgers and Derek, and as long as we're saying we're sorry, I'd like to apologise to anyone who may have been in range of my refusal to use the indoor rest rooms after a certain point at the closing party. It was at Derek's suggestion, so his fault, really. :)

Oh man, what did I miss?
And to Mr. Malarkey I'd like to apologize (with a zed) for any inadvertant retinal damage, and for missing the opportunity for a proper goodbye.

Christ, Austin should think itself lucky I wasn't there, if that's the kinds of things you got up to!

I find myself reading all these SXSW entries and kicking myself in the nadgers for not being there. I'll be sure to make over to Austin in 2006.
Rest your nadgers on that long drive back, Derek.

It was really nice meeting you and it was especially nice talking about the idea of whether web design had influences from different cultures or if we are now part of one collective web culture. I had no idea you were so deep! :)
Also, I must say you Brits ROCK!
I actually asked Tantek if he was going to be involved in any way in the IE 7 development, to which he stared back at me and with a very straight face answered:
"I'm not with Microsoft anymore, you know?"
It was great meeting you Andy. Hope to see you again next year.

Great design, by the way your blog is on Tim Worstall's Britblog Roundup Number 5:
And I thought you were so well behaved, Andy. I must have missed all you little 'moments'. See you at the next 'geekend' then? Wherever that may be ...
Andy Clark! :)
