Pre-SXSW @Gowalla Meetup
So this post sounds more like a Dad thing than a Ty thing. Well sort of. Dad plays this fun location based icon gathering game on his iPhone called Gowalla. It just happens to be made by a team here in Austin. So when we heard there was going to be a small gathering of the local "fans" we dropped in for a visit. (See this special icon)
Ty and I went down to the Dog & Duck Pub and met some of the folks who actually build and market the game (like Sandi and Jon) as well as some avid players. Ty sat quietly and munched on a cheeseburger and fries while the group chatted about the game and upcoming features.
If you have never heard of it or are curious, I suggest you check it out. We also got to see the real Gowallamobile and got some stickers for Ty and a shirt for Dad (Thanks again Jon).
