10. SXSW Venn Diagram, photo by Steven Rosenbaum. Venn SXSW is the brainchild / hairbrain scheme of Sam and Hannah the Planners. We like to reduce things to their essence and find the Venn diagram a trusty tool. We’ll be condensing and synthesing all the big ideas we encounter, to produce a diagram of the day, everyday. To Venn SXSW. This will be captured on film, blog, twitter, media partners and t-shirts and relayed back to those at home in near real time. Making us your man and woman on the ground in SXSW. Over and out. Visit Albion London – Venn SXSW and Clay Shirky’s Writings About the Internet.

11. Whale Diner + Pixelated Saints, photo by Scott Beale / Laughing Squid. The Diner was opened on December 31st, 1998 by friends Mark Firth and Andrew Tarlow. After years of living on the South Side and having nowhere to eat, drink, or hang out nearby, they decided to open their own little place, and took over the lease of the 1920’s Kullman Diner car one block away from their home.

Some things to note:

1. I will be tracking tees during the Interactive Session (March 12 – 16). Depending on how things goes, I might do this series of posts throughout the entire festival. We shall see!

2. If you’re a startup and you see your T-Shirt here then please note that I want it! If you’ve got an extra Men’s Large send one my way and I’ll be sure to review not only your tee but your service/website on this blog! Should be fun.

3. If you’re at SXSW, 1. I am jealous and 2. Be on the lookout for cool tees that you spot and send them my way!
