SXSW Interactive Brought All the Bloggers to the Yard

Posted in book porn by Lauren Leto on March 28, 2010

While at SXSW, @benbetter and I went to the ICanHasCheezburger party, hosted by Ben Huh. We hung with (the hilarious and very wise) Ian J. Spector, who writes the Chuck Norris Facts books. Also, we saw our old friend and favorite asshole Tucker Max. Huh, Spector and TFLN all share the same imprint for our books: Gotham. The meme blog world is small, @patrickmulligan pwns us all.

The next night, I went out to dinner with Tim Ferriss, Drew Curtis and Tucker. Of course, at dinner I find out Gotham has also published Curtis’ Fark book. Seriously, Gotham owns everything that makes you laugh online. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures from that dinner to share. Regardless, they are all great people and you should check out their books.

Here are the Amazon pages for all those authors/meme people:
