Boxee Plans to Party on the Road Trip to SXSW

The team behind New York’s Boxee is road-tripping it to Austin this year in a rented Jeep Cherokee. Besides saving money on airfare, the plan allows the team to stop in Richmond, Atlanta and New Orleans to meetup with about 100 Boxee customers and fans in each location.

“Besides doing a meetup in each one of these cities we’d like to meet and talk with users, students, and developers,” founder and CEO Avner Ronen wrote on the company blog.

They’re also looking for venues for the meetups, a point person in each city, suggestions for road trip stops and a “good bail agent.” And then when they get to Austin, they’re throwing a kegger. Spring break! Woooo!
