A Central Ohio presence at you can help

South by SouthWest (SXSW) is arguably the leading annual conference and trade show for emerging technology in the country.  Paired with similar shows for film and music, SXSW is an intense, five-day interactive technology showcase and schmoozefest held every spring in Austin, Texas.

Attendees from Central Ohio came back this year with stories of amazing panels and presentations, conversations with technology legends, uber-networking for hours on end, and stunning new technology ideas and demos.

Planning for the next SXSW is a collaborative process, where attendees and interested bystanders help determine the agenda for 2011.  And next year, several local proposals may make it onto the agenda…with your help.  Thirty percent of the weighting in selecting events for SXSW is based on public opinion.

So visit the SXSW “panel-picker” sites to vote for each of these proposals:

Time is running out on the voting…SXSW closes the polls on September 4.  So as they say in Chicago, vote early and vote often to help get Central Ohio on the SXSW map.  And consider devoting a few days to next year’s SXSW; it’s March 12-16, 2010.  For more information, visit
