Today’s San Francisco Chronicle features an article by Dan Fost on how Twitter was the “toast of the town” at last week’s SXSW Interactive 2007:
“Austin’s SXSW festival atwitter over Twitter”
In the article Dan quotes one of the Twits I sent out at SXSW: “I think we reached Twittercal mass in Austin. It will be interesting to see where we go from here.”
Dan also references a story I told him from SXSW about I was out with Obvious Corp (the company that makes Twitter) for a late dinner at Maglolia Cafe, where afterwards we were stranded in the rain waiting for a cabs we called that were not showing up. I said, why don’t we use the awesome force that is Twitter and I send out a Twitter post asking someone to send a cab our way. Well the cabs we called eventually showed up, but when I got back to the hotel a saw a Twitter post from Whurley, the organizer of BarCamp Austin, who offered to come out there and pick us up. Yeah, the system works.
