BackHot, rotating, vertical porkIntroduction

Our last official act in Austin was a happy hour and early supper at Guero's Taco Bar, where I had a fabulous margarita, great chips and salsas and, of course, the speciality of the house.

After eating, we said a farewell to James and dropped him off at his hotel, then Dinah and I returned my rental car to the airport and went our separate ways.

All in all, SXSW 2001 was completely different and exactly the same as the experience I'd so relished in 2000. With "the burst of the dot-com bubble", there was naturally more talk about potential revenue models at the panels and more furious exchanging of resumes and business cards and -- most lamentably -- fewer open bars with free Shiner.

But the people were the main attraction, as they'd been for me the year before. SXSW is an opportunity to catch up with friends I may only see once or twice a year but value no less for our separation. It's a time to bullshit with old buddies, break bread with new ones, brainstorm ideas and get caught in the rain.

Needless to say, I can't wait for next year.
