SXSW in 140 characters - Day 3

This is a summary of my SXSW experience in 140 character bites with pictures...

Breakfast taco time. Also contemplating how the cat treats the wife when Im away. http://twitpic.com/17wteo 

So the first piece of news back home is that the cat has gone back to his inappropriate ways. I assume Dexter misses my presence an is moving in on the alpha female in the group.

Cholestrol beware. My first taco. http://twitpic.com/17x3ov

In search of my GoWalla Sweet Leaf Tea voucher. Testing location based fulfilment. Bit of a hike http://twitpic.com/17x76z 

Sucess! Score 1 for location based marketing. GoWalla + Sweet Leaf Tea combo. Very cool experience. http://twitpic.com/17xk9g 

Is fulfilment the most important word in digital? A GoWalla / Sweet Leaf Tea story. http://bit.ly/ac4yli

Social media can only truly be appreciated when there's volume. The movement is palpable.

RETWEETING -- @EveD: The #crowdfund is 75% there! R750,000 raised so far, in less than a week 

The CrowFund is a great initiative set up by Eve and a bunch of other SA techies.The concept is simple - if 1000 people give 1000 Rand each, you could develop a 1 million Rand fund. With that fund, you can start injecting much needed impetutus into raising angel investment for South African tech startups.
