I’m at the WordPress Users group tonight which is a basic intro session for beginners.Â Karen Kreps is here.Â Cesar and the Conjunctured Gang is hanging around the front porch.Â When I walked up they asked me “have you heard of this thing called a blog?”Â . . . they were talking about the meeting but for a second I thought they were alluding to the fact that my updates here have been, slightly, majorly scarce.
I’d like to say I’ve been busy editing the 200 plus SXSW interviews that our little crew did, but actually Luke Mullen gets all the credit for that.Â Luke and I are starting to get in synch with this and he’s on the final lap, which is putting all these videos in to a format we can publish on Itunes for ipods, iphones and desktop high def video.
I’m particularly fond of the Louis Gray interview (alistapart), Silona Bonewald’s open government series of speakers and the Felicia Day interview:
Felicia Day (Codex, the Healer)
â€¦was born in Huntsville, Alabama. She was home-schooled all her life and got her first acting role as Scout in the Huntsville Little Theatre production of â€œTo Kill a Mockingbird.â€ Felicia started college at 16, majoring in violin performance, and then in mathematics at the University of Texas at Austin. She has been on television shows such as â€œWindfallâ€, â€œStrong Medicineâ€, â€œMonkâ€, â€œLove Inc.â€, and most notably had a recurring role as Potential slayer Vi on â€œBuffy the Vampire Slayer.â€ She has been in such films as â€œBring it on Againâ€, and the Emmy award-winning â€œWarm Springsâ€.
She recently played the role of â€œPennyâ€ in Joss Whedonâ€™s â€œDr. Horribleâ€™s Sing-Along Blogâ€, and filmed a 4 episode arc on the upcoming ABC Family sitcom, â€œRoommatesâ€.
(IMDB). And in an exclusive bit of news she dropped on AustinBlogger, Felicia said she will be in a pretty major role in and upcoming episode of “Doll House” on ABC television.
