SXSW And Grumpy Cat

To a lot of folk, the headline above may not even makes sense, so let me do some splainin'; South By Southwest (SXSW) has become an annual staple in Austin TX since it started in 1987 as a music festival.  It's a multi-day series of events and conferences, now covering Music, Technology, and Film. Both Twitter and Foursquare gained media attention there in 2007 and 2009 respectively, as did quite a few other tech start-ups. Grumpy Cat is, well, a "famous-on-the-Internet" cat that has a facial expression that looks a lot like a grumpy person, as you can see below. It's not a trick; the cat looks like that. Grumpy Cat became quite a sensation at this year's SXWS, as the feline phenom showed up in person to schmooze with her fans.
