A quick video done a day before flying out to sxsw this year to give you a quick overview of what you can expect from the 'ontheground' team at south by southwest interactive festival in austin, texas from march 13th onwards.

We have been sponsored by sleepydog.net to take out the amplified concept of recording ontheground and we aim to push the concept a little bit further utilizing a mashup we have built around google maps and using the rezpondr/eventca.st theme system to provide a really easy to use interface so you can track our latest posts while we are around the streets of austin. We hope you will come and say hi!

We want to thank. .

sleepydog.net (@sleepydog) for believing in us and investing time, patience and money into the codebase, people and effort that goes into these experiments.

@bogenimaging for the loan of the awesome litepanel

@boxee for working with us on plugitpassit.com concept
and the 1gb usb sticks with preinstalled appletv hack boxee on! ;)

tekkeon for supplying a test version of the mp3700 and a discount code of 20% for people at sxsw for the week (i'll add this in here shortly)

cradlepoint for supplying us a backup ctr500 router for the experiment and charging batteries/cable for gumballstyle (phs300)

@bambuser for giving dev versions of codebase and partnering with us for future projects involving the mapping and hopefully gaming with @sleepydog

@buddhamagnet (who is on the team in austin) for working on the google map mashup at short notice and i hope to work with the next version/port to ruby and expanding on the idea in his freetime (when he has it!)

@orchid8 that came to the rescue at the hour of need to locate a rode ntg-2 and deadcat for the recording.
