A highlight of this year’s SXSW was running into my friend Yiying Lu. I first met Yiying when she came to America for the first time in her life in 2009 to pick up her Shorty Award for designing Twitter’s Fail Whale. Now she’s hiding behind the design she made for the SXSWi Big Bag.

Ran into my almost namesake @Gregarious Narain at SXSW, who amazing didn’t know you could make an animated gif on an iPhone, despite starting animated gif-compatible “Twilio for photos” Chute.
