2008 will be the year that I go to my first South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Conference. I’m not really sure why I haven’t gone yet but I know I’m not missing this one.
I was taking a stroll through the panel picker application, where you can vote one which panels ideas (there are 688 of them… WOW!) you think look interesting and that you’d want to attend. I quickly started to see the names of people I recognized as well as my friends.
These are some of the panels ideas that stood out for me (NOTE: I voted for many more than this)…
- Know Your Users: People Who Like AJAX, Also Like Beer – By Sarah Culberson, eBay
- Browsing Without Boundaries: The Rise of the Ubiquitous Web – By Hakon Wium Lie, Opera
- I-TV: The Revolution That’s Changing What People Watch – By Jim Louderback, Revision3
- High Performance Web Sites – By Steve Souders, Yahoo!
- Why Do We Need Libraries Anyway? – By Danielle Cunniff Plumer, Texas State Library and Archives Commission
- Building Portable Social Networks – By Jeremy Keith, Adactio
- Blind Bloggers, Deaf Designers: Just Doing It – By Shawn Henry, W3C
What panels look good to you? Which ones would you be excited about? What ones do you think I should vote for?
