David Simon Was Here

David Simon Was Here

Most people attending SXSW 2008 had no idea that David Simon, creator of HBO’s beloved series The Wire, was actually in attendance. He kept a low profile near the end of the fest and then had a big event on the Tuesday following it all. He was interviewed in front of a few hundred folks at the University of Texas, by film professor John Pierson. I stopped by to check it out, because while I have not watched any of The Wire yet, I thought it’d be a great conversation. It was. Minus a few spoilers here and there (Omar?), I was able to follow along even if I did feel at times like the odd man out at a Star Trek convention. Janet Pierson has shared on her blog, a great recap of the night and the conversation, by cartoonist/blogger Austin Kleon.
