SXSWi 2010

It is once again that time of the year; it is time to vote for next year’s SXSW (2010) panel sessions! To vote, go to the SXSW 2010 Panel Picker.

==> Note that voting closes September 4th!

An incubator of cutting-edge technologies, SXSW Interactive, in Austin TX, features five days of compelling presentations from the brightest minds in emerging technology, bringing together the world’s most creative web developers, designers, bloggers, wireless innovators, content producers, programmers, widget inventors and new media entrepreneurs.

Being a community-driven event, SXSW panels are selected based on community input which accounts for 30% of the total voting power formula:

And this time around the Interactive Festival has 238 242 submitted panel proposals on Mobile/Wireless (108) and Mobile Apps (134).

As a member of the Advisor Board and for obvious reasons I refrain from influencing voters about specific panels to vote for, but I’ll say that I am very excited about the mobility proposals that have been submitted for 2010; it is great to see how year by year the mobility presence continues to grow.

Looking beyond mobility, the Interactive Festival also have a number of great sessions on topics such as social networking, Art, new Technologies, Design, non-profits, content, collaboration, case studies, programming, animation, augmented reality, about our Environment (Mother Earth) and many more topics: a total of 2,282 sessions have been submitted and based on what I saw on the panel picker web site, the SXSW 2010 event will be another great event to attend. And if your schedule permits, stay for the whole SXSW event that includes the Music and Film festivals.

SXSW is a unique and fun experience; you have to attend to understand what I mean; you will learn, meet great people and have a blast; guaranteed! So go ahead and vote and see you next March 12-20 of 2010!
