SXSW: Requesting Your Vote for My Next Adventure

Filed under: Blog Accessibility, Social Media — by Glenda at 10:13 pm on Wednesday, August 11, 2010

And for my next adventure…presenting at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference in Austin, Texas, in March 2011!

I submitted my speaker’s proposal in early July. Because SXSW is a community-driven event, acceptance of my proposal is determined by three factors:

  • 30% by SXSW staff,
  • 40% by the Advisory Board – a group of industry professionals from across the US and around the world,
  • 30% by you, my loyal readers and fans!

Voting is now open until Friday, August 27,  2010, at 11:59pm central time. To vote, you’ll need to create a account (name, email and password). (The Panel Picker interface is experiencing a few hiccups today. Please persist!)

Any comments on my proposed topic "The Untapped iPad Market: Is Your Site POUR?" are greatly appreciated so that I can prepare a rockin’ presentation! If you’d like to provide feedback but not create an account, feel free to leave your comments in the comment section below. Although your vote would be appreciated.

How can you help?

Thanks kindly!

Hopefully I will be off to Austin in March…

Okay, I understand SXSW a bit better just with this post. Thank you, Glenda. I will be creating an account and voting for your presentation.

Will you attend in person or present via distance technology? (I only recently saw your presentation to an event in San Antonio by following your links in twitter.)

Hoping to attend some of SXSW in person next year. I perused the conference site online this year, and could not justify the cost. Plus the pitch is so much toward the young and musical….not my interest anymore than the hearty-partying I saw online and via twitter.

So, IF you come to TX, I hope to meet you in person!

Thank you, Barbara! If my proposal is accepted, I’ll be “live in Austin”!

I can’t speak for SXSW because I haven’t been yet, but with BlogWorld in Vegas: you can go to the conference to learn and to network, or you can go to party, or a bit of both. Perhaps SXSW is somewhat the same?
