Making good Mondays is like making coffee -

The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

South by Southwest --

SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST means different things to different people. Right now -- with a Google search -- lots of people have been referred to my other blog's web address, South by Southwest. I would guess that over the years it has gotten me a few more readers. It has also probably been frustrating to people who had no interest in reading a Progressive political blog such as mine at S/SW. My blog's heading reads,

IDEAS & REFLECTIONS - my observations and commentary on people and events that affect the USA or the rest of the world.

Google did it -- When anyone does a Google search on "South by Southwest," my blog always comes up on page 1. It is a very interesting confusion. This year is because it has been early registration time (1/11) for the "South x Southwest Festival and Conference," set for March 7-16 2008 in Austin, Texas. Here is what they were actually looking for. To quote from the S x SW websites:

SXSW Interactive
March 7-11, 2008

SXSW Interactive The SXSW Interactive Festival features five days of exciting panel content and amazing parties. Attracting digital creatives as well as visionary technology entrepreneurs, the event celebrates the best minds and the brightest personalities of emerging technology.

March 7-15, 2008


“While SXSW has been able to leverage its laid-back 'tude and its lead-up to the musical festival as much as its film lineup, the fest has continually been honing in on taking itself to the next level.” – Ian Mohr, Variety, March 2007

SXSW Music
March 12-16, 2008

SXSW Music Each March SXSW Music presents new opportunities to make your vision reality. Musicians and the companies they work with have used SXSW as a cost-effective way to promote themselves since 1987.

Today I salute you, the South x Southwest Festival and Conference. It will be the "happening" place to be here in Texas in March. Early registration is closed, but you will have no trouble registering for the events.
