We're in Austin, Texas and haven't left the hotel room yet. It's lovely in here and besides that, we're too busy reading Austinist. Brand new to the gothamist network, Ben Brown (Internet Rockstar) is its editor and, at this point, doing it all by himself.

Other gothamist action in Austin this week? Jake Dobkin will be at SXSW and speaking on two panels: How to create a community website and How to create a multimedia moblog. SFist's editor Jackson West is in town. We, and by we we mean me, will be speaking on a panel as well: Blogging while black.

Now where to go to get a breakfast taco?
