Northern Voice, SXSW - Will You Be There?

Updated: I've created a schedule of sessions and parties I plan to attend at SXSWi (maybe Sachi too!).  You can see the schedule here.

I suppose it's the time of year for directionally-based conferences. 

I'm heading up to Northern Voice in Vancouver this weekend and Sachi and I both will be heading south to Austin, Texas for SXSW Interactive starting March 7th.  I hope we'll be able to meet you at one of these conferences.
