I am ridiculously excited to be attending Andy Baio and Andy MacMillan’s upcoming XOXO Festival in Portland.

XOXO is billed as a “celebration of disruptive creativity.” And, jeez, it looks to be about as lovingly handcrafted as a festival can get.

Conference tickets sold out on Kickstarter in two days. XOXO and Kickstarter are upending the festival world in exactly the same way that Louis CK gracefully evaded middlemen and overhead by selling his own $5 comedy special online.
