iReport IRL: Austin, Texas, edition

Austin, Texas, has experienced more than its fair share of news in the past several months: a dramatic plane crash, unseasonable snow, and just recently the annual South By Southwest festival. All of which means that Austin also has more than its fair share of top-notch iReporters.

 

And, since I was one of a few lucky CNNers who got the plum assignment of heading to Austin for SXSW, I also got a chance to meet several of the local iReporters. We met up over beers and sunshine on the patio of a spot called The Gingerman Pub, and swapped tales about finding stories and where to get the best view from above. It was the weekend of the “View from up high” weekend assignment, after all. Thanks to Patricio, Mikayla, Robert, Sherri, Rod and friends for coming out! Sure was great to meet you in person.

 

If you're thinking of hosting an iReport meetup in your town, let us know! We'd love to see photos and help you spread the word.

 


Around the table, clockwise from bottom left are Dermot Waters from CNN, Daniel Ha and Ro Gupta from Disqus, Valerie Streit from CNN, Lila King of CNN iReport, iReporters Robert Bluestein and Mikayla Forrest and Bonnie Sashin.

 


iReporter Rod Stepan models his newest pocket accessories: a pair of CNN anchor-themed bookmarks.
