So my first day in Austin… rocked. What a cool city. I can see myself spending a lot of time here.
The house I am staying at is pretty dreamy. It reminds me of the cabin I helped build in Alaska. Wood floor, ceiling and walls. The beams in the ceiling are at least 14′ and are continuous, a sign of what the lumber supply used to be.
I saw Virb today for the first time. It is about time someone did the social networking thing right! Looks beautiful. I was feeling a bit bad for the world of design with MySpace being so huge, with no real designed alternative. I saw a list of bands playing this week at SXSW, and all, and I mean all had their MySpace pages listed. No real website to be found. Next year I think over half of the bands will be using Virb and not MySpace. I can hope.
I love taking photos at dusk. What little light is to be had gives you what it has got. In the height of the day you through out a bunch of light, but at those last few moments after a sunset, every beam is cherished.
