Early Engineering Prototype

A few of us are heading down to Austin TX for the annual SxSW music/film/interactive festival for the long weekend. Beyond the panels, events, and BBQs, I’ll have an early MID prototype from Gigabyte.

This engineering prototype is running Linux and features the Intel Atom processor. I’ll put it through its paces riding along on the Bikehugger Urban Ride through the streets of Austin. Its new, it may be a little buggy, but I’ll find a few hotspots or shady spots to blog w/ my MID.

If you’re at the show, join us for the ride and/or come find me w/ my Aigo.

    Sweet!! Wish I could be there. I will certainly be watching the action online…from bella Italia. I’d love to see a list of cool multimedia microblogging services making a buzz at SxSW. Maybe at SxSW 2009 we’ll see festival goers live socializing with MIDs. Have a great time!
