Take an Automagical Jaunt With MailChimp and Gowalla

automagic_iphoneThere are lots of fun ways to connect with the MailChimp team this year at South by Southwest. If you’re in Austin, Texas any time during the next 10 days, please catch up with us and say hello!

This year we’ve joined forces with Gowalla to create a trip that will lead you on a voyage of discovery and delight…

Gowalla is a mobile application that allows you to check-in, share your location with friends, and collect virtual goodies (in the form of items, pins, and stamps in your virtual passport) as well as tangible rewards. And since Gowalla was born and raised in Austin, we thought they’d be a perfect partner to team up with during SXSW.

Our Automagical Jaunt will take you to three specific spots where you can connect with us– the Automagical Mural at the corner of 3rd St. and Trinity (outside of the Austin Convention Center), the South By Small Business Web happy hour, and at Happy Cog’aoke 2. While the MailChimp team won’t be camping out by the Automagical Mural 24/7 , you’re sure to find us at both the SXSBW  happy hour (Saturday 3/13, 4-7PM) and Happy Cog’aoke (Saturday 3/13, 10PM-2AM).

We’re also sponsoring SCHED* again this year, which is considered the premiere interactive event calendar and social networking tool for conferences and festivals. Take a look at their indispensable Unofficial Guide to SXSW 2010 to keep up with everything going on at this year’s festival.
