SXSW08: Product Pimping Tuesday March 25, 2008

Before I start, I just want to point out that I was actually on top of this whole twitter Web 2.0 revolt stuff. See I wasn’t making it up. By the way watching the AltaVista Party happen via Twitter was hilarious. Hundreds of geeks all looking puzzled trying to find out if and how AltaVista was still a viable company.

Okay, so it’s been 2 weeks since I came home and I’m still only catching up now with rooting through all the swag I pull back. So this is the last you’ll hear of SXSW 2008. Ever! I promise…

So on with some product pimping from SXSW.

First and fore most since I’ve already increased sales of Blik and the sumo lounge chair on this site, I’m going to have to pimp Timbuk2’s line of customizable and designer messenger bags. I’m sorry, but these were almost as common as Macs/itouches/iphones at the conference and they are to fing die for. Seriously number one on my must have list.

June 5th’s my birthday in case you were wondering.

One of the coolest bits of swag came from Freshbooks, the quintessential freelance invoicing application, and their Hangover cure.

The highlight of the tradeshow had to Mimobots, who produce are custom made vinyl USB keys. At the trade show they were a stellar hit and at a 45% discount. Their booth was packed with people and I’m still hitting my head for not pickign up a dozen and reselling them. just check out the X-wing Luke Skywalker.

City of Heroes the video game. World of War craft but you get to be a superhero … If I wasn’t in a committed relationship right now I might consider joining this and throwing out all contact with the female race. But for now the addictive PackRat will have to do.

So what do you do when you’re all jacked into this whole web 2.0 Nonsense and you post on multiple web sites? Simple you utilize FriendFeed.com every time you post a twitt, blog post, flickr photo or a Gootube video it notifies your friends via an RSS Feed.

Besides that the rest of your usual suspects were pimping there wears at SXSW- You know Threadless, Facebook, Tokyo Police Club, and Media Temple.

Oh yeah….And if anyone can explain to me what the fuck Frrrvr.com is I will send them a small prize.

Seriously, WTF is it.
