Updated Mobile Social SXSW 11 Schedule

The People of Austin didn’t get the memo that we planned Built and a smaller Mobile Social SXSW this year. About 3K have RSVP’d on Facebook. That’s a good problem to have and our sponsors have kicked in more budget for another party. Yeah Sponsors!


The Mobile Social SXSW is two parties now. A preparty at Frank for beer, dogs, schwag. Then we ride the Mobile Social and conclude with tacos and beer at the Gypsy Tavern.


If you’ve RSVP’d on Facebook already, you’re good for the Mobile Social and for tacos and beer. To meet us at Frank, RSVP via EventBrite. Besides the dogs and beer, we’ll have prizes and schwag there.



Brush Square Park (5th/Naches) is our traditional meeting spot and we’ll have people there at 5 to collect anyone that didn’t get the this message. We’ll ride to Frank and meet up with the rest of the crew there.

Festival Beach is where the Mobile Social starts this year and ends at Gypsy Lounge.

Your Help

Note: Facebook won’t allow us to message event attendees directly. Please tell your friends. We updated the schedule and added the pre-party because of the massive turnout expected for the original party. Now it’s two parties!

out for a ride.

Then back for meetings. While I know that belt has no grease on it, I touch it and then my pants to make sure.

Assembly time was about 30 minutes and 15 of that was me adjusting the wheel alignment. The belt slipped just once up a climb and then not again. This morning, taking it apart, and back to Seattle.

Japanese manga is not just nerdy; it’s bike nerdy!


“Until Death Do Us Part” is an adult-targeted Japanese manga (comic) that is something of a hyper-modern take on Japanese cinema’s Zatoichi blind swordsman. A pre-cognitive girl fleeing from the yakuza and international terrorists finds protection with a blind, sword-swinging secret agent. But flipping through reasonably entertaining chapters full of graphic dismemberment by sword and gunplay, you find that the manga artist is eff’ing serious with the small details. You can actually see that the girl is riding a Dahon mini-velo with a Bio-Logic iPhone mount.
