Technically, they’re not vampire bats, which might be behind the inferiority complex. But the 1.5 million bats living under the Congress Bridge in Austin can brag about being the largest urban bat colony in the world, as Reuters reports. Be sure to add this to your list of destinations while you’re in ATX. Last year I had a fun visit with Scott Laningham and Turbo Todd Watson about some of our humor projects at IBM, including Art of the Sale, Mad Science with John Cohn and the smarter planet animation series.
The year before, David Meerman Scott and I watched the bats along the way of our aimless tour of ATX.
I hope to see you if you’re heading down this year. Ann Handley and I will record an ATX version of our new series , and I’ll tweet out when we have the session planned. If you need help picking which events to attend, check out the Golin Harris marketer’s guide, SX Scout.
