Today, Stephanie Agresta and I are officially announcing some two-must attend TechSet events during SXSWi.

SXSW Interactive is powered by the one thing that binds us together, you.  It is a congregation of wisdom, artistry, and poetry and it is the foundation for why we each make this annual migration to Austin, Texas.

This year we have something very special lined up for the 2009 SXSWi, and your presence is formally requested. Join us at The TechSet Blogger Lounge sponsored by Windows Mobile to collaborate and celebrate everyday during the conference.

We’re assembling an agenda rich with activities, entertainment, and resources to make this year unforgettable, fun, and also productive. Daily Tweet-Ups, contests and a video wall available for your blogging interests. Drinks, snacks, and all you can eat broadband also provided.

The Austin Suite is a large room located on the 3rd Floor of the Convention Center. Please note that a SXSW conference pass is required to enter the Blogger Lounge.

*** Plus, The TechSet Joins the Rat Pack, for One Night Only

The TechSet and Windows Mobile invite you to a very special, free event at the classic Belmont Lounge on Friday, March 13, 2008 from 8 to 10 p.m.

Come enjoy the unique and stylish period-specific décor that conjures scenes from Las Vegas and Palm Springs during the Sinatra era. You’ll be surrounded by incredible and pioneering entrepreneurs and influencers as we create our own Rat Pack rich with relationships that will propel us long after the curtain closes on SXSWi 09.

Style. Swagger. Distinction.

Do it your way, this is your time to shine baby!
