Think you can do SXSW better than SXSW does? Now's your chance to tell em'! They've brought back their Panel Picker interface (which isn't nearly as painful as it sounds) for you to suggest a panel or a presentation for SXSW 2011.
The SXSW submission process runs until July 9th. Then the community and advisory board browses ideas and rates them from August 9th - 29th. The community-based approach goes for SXSW Interactive, SXSW Film and SXSW Music. Check out the video above for the entire panel picker spiel on how it works.
The South by Southwest Music Festival 2011 show, will take place in Austin, Texas on March 16-20. The entire SXSW experience will go from March 11th-20th, and includes SXSW Interactive and SXSW Film.
Check out video coverage from this year's South by Southwest conference on the Spacelab Media Player.
SXSW has the luxury of not only being one of the first festival / conference deals of the year but also one of the biggest. This is the gathering that shapes the rest of the year... check out anyone who will be somebody in 2011 at SXSW.
