Sorry for the delay, but the last installment of our South by Southwest posts is here! On Monday morning of SXSWi in Austin, we had a 4sqday meetup with a fantastic turnout. I met people from all over the world: Australia, Germany, Denmark; we all discussed celebrating foursquare day.

Those who had previously hosted 4sqDay parties gave some how-to’s and helpful hints. Those who hadn’t had great questions. Foursquare had handouts explaining how to register on meetup.com and sign up for a swag pack. Nina let us in on the new “crown” swag secret and got our feedback on other merchandise.

My favorite part of the meetup was a discussion about redefining the “superuser.” We were asked our opinion if the superuser should evolve into different areas of expertise or if that could become too complicated. I recorded some of the conversation:

After our meetup, the foursquare court was set up for the tournament. They washed it down with Pepsi Max so no one would slip! And isn’t Anoop the most adorable referee ever?

After the meetup, I ran into Jessica Barnett, one of the 4sqDay originators! Then Dennis Crowley talked to me! Very cool day.
