It’s a pretty quiet weekend with most people focused on the aftermath of the Japanese earthquakes.  For the geek end of things this weekend also saw both SXSW and PAX East going on.  For fans of both, what is one supposed to do!?  I decided to couch surf all weekend instead.  But that begs a bigger question.  Who would win in a fight, SXSW Hipsters or PAX East Video Game Geeks?
