|Our first SXSW event - a party at the Paramount Theatre, followed by a presentation by the creator of SXSW,|
among other notables.
|The Startup Crawl started in the lobby of the Omni Hotel building.|
|The Startup Crawl was very busy, and it was hard to make it around to talk to all the vendors.|
|Eric spent most of the time at the Startup Oasis in the upstairs of Old School Bar & Grill on 6th Street.|
He made use of their daily "Office Hours" to meet with experts in different areas of business.
|One of our favorite parties was the "I F-ing Love The Science Channel" Party.|
Bartenders all wore lab coats, drinks were served in beakers with glowing ice cubes, and they had
good food and freebies.
|The Capital Factory had a lot of good stuff going on during SXSW Interactive.|
|Eric got to ride around town (and network) on the Can We Network bus.|
|Cara found the Bates Motel in downtown Austin (complete with a vending machine of "Mom's Killer Brownies")|
|Okay, not quite sure what Eric had going on here...|
|Cara enjoyed the Silvercar Moonroof Party with new friend, Lisa McNally.|

|We found a nice cool spot to rest for a bit. Cara loved the shade concept here.|
|The Yahoo! Lounge was a good place to chill and get some work done.|
Plus, they had a constant rotation of acts that would perform a couple of songs, then get interviewed.
|We even enjoyed a near private performance by Spandau Ballet at the Yahoo! Lounge.|

|You see all kinds of stuff on the streets.|
|We did catch some good live music at The Tiniest Bar in Texas.|
