Help pick SXSWi 2007 panels

South by Southwest is inviting folks to help them select the panels for their 2007 Interactive conference. I put in two proposals: “If All Politics is Local, Why Are you Still Reading DailyKOS?” and “Advocacy 2.0: Movement-building in the Age of Connectivity” (featuring Marty Kearns). Both are listed in the politics/social activism category. There are 173 proposals so I recommend using categories to navigate, even though they are kind of silly.

Offical announcement from the wonderful and talented Hugh Forrest after the jump…


I hope that you are well. Please pardon the form letter . . but, I wanted to alert you that the online interface for panel proposals for the 2007 SXSW Interactive Festival is now live. This page allows users to give us their feedback on which of the many outstanding panel proposals they feel are most appropriate for next year’s event. The panel idea and description that you sent me earlier this summer is listed on this page.


Complete directions for the voting process are listed on the site. I definitely encourage you to vote for the idea(s) that you submitted. As well, I encourage you to send this link to friends and associates to encourage them to vote for your idea. As noted on the site, please remember that votes submitted by past speakers and past attendees will be given slightly more weight than the votes of users who have not yet attended SXSW Interactive.

Deadline for voting is September 8.

Thanks again for lending your ideas to this process.

Best regards,

Hugh Forrest
