The Coudal, Fried and Segura Trio

After a crowd-pleasing performance at the 2006 SXSW conference, the hit-making duo of Jim Coudal and Jason Fried have added a little Carlos Segura to the mix for the upcoming Seed Conference, to be held October 29 in the fair city of Chicago.

“Design, Entrepreneurship & Inspiration” is the theme, and we really can’t think of a better three people to deliver it. Bonus: A lunchtime talk by public radio host Edward Lifson, who will discuss the Mies van der Rohe campus of IIT. Maybe he’ll even play the Mies music video that he absolutely did not make.

Coudal Swaps Meat Stories With Rob Walker

Glossing over any kind of potentially unethical journalistic tendencies in this post, we’ll simply direct you to an article about the firm of Jim Coudal (who may or may not employ one UnBeige editor) by Rob Walker (who may or may not be a distant relative to another UnBeige editor). “Trading Partners” is all about our favorite one-month experiment that’s lasted an entire summer with no end in sight…the Swap Meat.

The real beauty of the Meat of course, is that beautiful things by beauties like Marian Bantjes (above) can be all yours.

Getting Soaked At SXSW

After our Frank moment, we splashed across the street to carouse with our interactive cohorts in a reunion of sorts. We slugged Stellas and watched drenched co-eds come in from the rain with Khoi Vinh (Mr. Subtraction) and Jim Coudal (aka Steve’s Day Job Daddy), who had just dined with Helvetica director Gary Hustwit. Metropolis/Wired editor Andrew Blum and Daylife’s Liz Danzico bailed early after their panel-participating duties. John Gruber gave wistful advice for Microsoft and extolled the wonders of emollients. Media Temple‘s Chris Leu and Apple‘s Michael Lopp bought the drinks (thanks…and, we’ll see you guys again tonight, right?).

Chris Fahey showed up later with an extra-long umbrella which we stared at enviously as the gutters began to overflow. After waiting 30-plus minutes for the rain to let up so we could walk the three blocks home, we gave up and hailed a cab. Best $2.00 we’ve ever spent.
