Merlin Mann on SXSW

Merlin Mann:

Not a list of peoples’ jokey internet names, not a moldy hillock of kinda-funny-once “memes,” not a series of asynchronous “@” responses, and not a goddamned drama about who follows whom today and what it all means. Talking about meeting people who speak in sentences and have complicated lives and make great things and care about a lot of the same stuff you do. That’s the thing.

Camaraderie doesn’t develop very well through LCD screens, and there is very little in this world that is better or more important.
