SXSW 2009 was Twittastic!

Things have been wonderfully hectic and I have been Twittering away with my few friends from the SXSW Interactive and Film Festival. While I like to Tweet, this was Twittering at its best to keep up with the latest news, best panels, and parties. If you were not on Twitter, you were missing out. Here is a super quick post SXSW update. 

+ My panel session went well, or at least according to the Tweets about it. Here are a couple projects we shared as SXSW panel of The Convergence of High-End Design, Fashion and Technology:

+ I also shared a table with Bre Pettis and his DIY Rapid Prototyper and got a mini interview with my Flip Cam (below). While this object could use a bit of aesthetic design, it is an amazing tool that allows you to create 3D objects on the fly. This is a perfect gadget for the modern jewelry maker or at home product designer. You can print your designs within about 15 - 30 minutes.
