The Paleo F(x) Effect

Earlier this year, I took a break from technology by retreating to the mountains with no phone, no computer, and no electronic entertainment (see "The Art of Recreation"). This week, however, I won't be running from technology, I'll be flying right into it's epicenter.
I'm heading to Austin Texas the very moment when South by Southwest (SXSW), one of the world's largest art, music, and technology festivals, is going to be in full swing. You won't hear stories about me rubbing shoulders with the Technorati, however, I'm going for something that is, for the time being, flying under the mainstream radar.
Simultaneous with SXSW, is Paleo F(x), an event that is bringing together some of the biggest names in the Paleosphere in order to bridge the gap between "theory" and "practice". The organizers of the event have made sure to include a wide diversity of presenters, from Invisible Shoe Inc.'s Steve Sashen, to Paul "Safe Starch" Jaminet, to the Low-Carb Living Jimmy Moore, to the ever Primal Mark Sisson, and everything in between.
While I'm excited to hear what the experts have to say, my main goal is to find out what's going on "in the trenches." I'll be attending as a "reporter on the scene" for PALEO Magazine and will be looking for stories from attendees who are the "practice" behind the "theory". If you are going to be in Austin, come find me and tell me your story!
Well I'm off to catch a plane, see you when I return!
