SxSWi (South by Southwest) is a big conference of “interactive media” types in Austin Texas. WxWM is a slightly smaller and much more hastily organised (but brilliant and fun) gathering held last weekend in Birmingham (the West Midlands…). There was lots of great stuff, which I may well blog about later, but first the self promotion.

Without much preparation, I gave a short talk on memes; particularly where they are slightly rude. Rhubarb Radio broadcast the whole thing live, and also have made the talks available for download.
