The LEGO KidsFest is a place full of awesome LEGO models and bricks for everybody to build something and have fun. The LEGO KidsFest event is NOT a place where parents will feel trapped about buying something so their little babies would stop crying and yelling to get one of those expensive Star Wars LEGO sets featuring some of the largest manuals I’ve ever seen, or a Duplo set for the toddlers in the family, or even one of those awesome Technic sets to keep the kid and the Dad busy or what about one of the kid’s favorites… a Ninjago set… it is all about ninjas, do I need to say more? Yes, of course this event features a store for visitors to buy LEGO sets, but the store occupies just a small area in this huge event where surprisingly you can find LEGO sets at regular prices and not inflated as it is usually the case in these type of events.

SXSW is here and for the past week or so you can see and feel SXSW in the air on the streets of downtown Austin, there are crews setting up stages, banners, all the bars getting ready, etc… And for the second time this year, this little blog was not able to obtain a media badge from SXSW… it turns out we are too small so no love for a tiny Austin blog, at least not now.

So after posting a tweet about free events for SXSWi, I got a reply from @gdgt about the awesome event they are hosting on Monday March 12th, 2012. The event name is gdgt Live in Austin and this is the 3rd time gdgt hosts this event. The best part, gdgt Live is free, all-ages, and open to the public! In their tweet they mentioned #badgeless2012 which it turns out is a website/blog that is all about people at SXSW with no badges.
