    Austin Post Startups
    On this week’s Austin Postcast, we interview Blake Garrett, founder of Austin based sxtyscnds. I wasn’t sure what to expect from someone who promises to “repurpose content into social, snackable games,” though I hoped he hadn’t somehow found a terrifying way to combine gamification and fiber. Luckily, it turns out sxtyscnds is all about turning boring information into quiz style casual games you can play for a minute or two while killing time in line.

    A lot of Austin’s geeks will be out of town at Burning Flipside or Houston’s Comicpalooza. For those of us still in town, boardgamers can get a sneak peek at the future of gaming with Protospiel South, Star Wars fans can see Return of the Jedi in full cinematic glory at The Alamo, and science fiction lovers have a choice of two book clubs.

    For many, the word “hacker” conjures images of Sandra Bullock or Angelina Jolie in movies where only the hairdos are more dated than the technology.

    The idea of commuting to work on a bicycle can raise a lot of questions. Is riding in rush-hour traffic dangerous? Are there less busy routes to take? Is there a place to shower before work? What’s the best type of bike for commuting?

    This week’s events are evenly divided between public drinking and public good. On the public good side, Austin is home to three different hackathons ranging from local food mapping to a national Angel funding competition. On the public drinking side, you can also party with WordPress, LinkedIn, TechCrunch, plus some local geek groups. Either way, it’s a fun week.

    The much-needed rain we got over the weekend turned areas like Barton Creek at the Gus Fruh access from dry creek beds into watery summer wonderlands. Here are some photos of the area dry and with water. They hardly look like the same place.

    Since Vikings first dedicated a day to Thor, we mere mortals have honored him with the rolling of dice, tempting of fate, and telling of stories. Rather than break that tradition, Austin is home to three very different yet equally appealing boardgame groups on Tuesday nights. If you’re not a fan of boardgames (or Tuesdays) this week you can also celebrate all things Japanese, enjoy some geektastic TV viewing parties, or find yourself a new LARP campaign.
