I met Jeff Jarvis at the last SXSW Interactive conference. I think I blogged about how cold he was to bring his teen-aged son along to SXSW. His personal blog, BuzzMachine.com, features an image of him from an interview on NBC. Notice his big smile? Notice the American Apparel ad? It was not until today that I realized what he was smiling about.
