Like Bing, I Can Has Cheezburger
is all about discovering the gems of the web. I know, Bing is not as funny or
cute but hey, the web is vast and there’s plenty of diamonds to unearth whether
up on Austin before hitting SXSW or getting
office snarked by a kitteh. This is why Bing is proud to partner with the
Cheezburger Network to bring you “The INTERNET is SERIOUS BUSINESS”
SXSW party. For all of you who graciously signed up, looking forward to landing
EPIC WINS on the night of 3/12! To follow the action, hashtag #seriousbiz.
