I’m about to leave for my second year at XOXO in Portland, a technology and art festival put together by my friend Andy Baio and co-founder Andy McMillan, who wanted to recapture the feeling of possibility and camaraderie he missed from the early days of SxSW Interactive.
Last year the festival had a sort of craft fair in the lobby, and these were some of my favorite things:
We Flashy, killer reflective wear for creatures of the night.
Print mashup from Berkley Illustration.
A Bikesexuality Zine. Ding!Ding!
And among my favorite objects of all time, Campfire Cologne.
I may never wash this sweater again. Or my hair.
Stop looking at me like that.
Are you going to XOXO? And/or do you wash your hair after a campfire?
