Greetings all the way from Austin!

On Sunday Colorlines.com and ColorOfChange.org hosted a meetup—a meet and greet of sorts—with readers, supporters and other journalists in Austin, Texas. We’re in town for the music and media conference South by Southwest (SXSW).

Co-hosting the meetup with me was Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org, the nation’s largest African-American online civil rights organization.

SXSW is all about new, innovative technology, music and film and I’ll bringing you updates throughout the week from Austin.

Mr. Robinson and I thank everyone who stopped by the meetup and we are especially grateful for Sabrina Roach, Brown Paper Tickets Radio and New Media Doer extraordinaire who hosted us.
