Everyone from Cloudkick arrived in Austin for SXSW 2010 on Thursday evening, so Day 0 technically.  Bob found us a nice condo to rent just outside the downtown, but still easy walking distance to everything.  We picked up our badges from a relatively short line that night, and then headed over to Iron Works BBQ bout 8:45.

On Friday, the first actual day of SXSW:

  • Grabbed lunch at Annies, and met with Jerry Chen who has been contributing to the libcloud project.
  • Opened CASSANDRA-885 bug report.  OOMing after the node crashed, as its unable to replay its commit log.
  • Went to a showing of ”The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.  The movie was very intense, but I still liked it.  Showing was at the Alamo, and having a Margarita while watching was even better.
  • Had dinner with the entire crew at Stubb’s.  Loved the brisket.
  • After some bar hopping, we ended up back at the pad… playing Rock Band.
