SXSW 2010 Wants To Hear Your Voice!

If you caught the music panels at SXSW 2009, you probably witnessed some pretty interesting stuff (especially those FMC speakers). But maybe there was a topic or issue you think was overlooked. Well, now you can have a hand in next year’s programming! SXSW recently launched its 2010 “Panel Picker” interface — an online system that allows the SXSW community to weigh in on what they’d like to see disussed at the 2010 event in Austin, TX.

SXSW is encouraging anyone with an awesome idea for a panel or presentation for either the music, interactive or film events to submit their proposals (a maximum of two per person) online for consideration from now until July 10.

The voting process begins on August 10, and lets you, the web community (along with the SXSW staff and advisory board) to voice your opinions as to what will be presented at SXSW ‘10. If you don’t have specific suggestions, you can still be a part of the selection committee, by browsing through a list of options and voting for what you’d like to see (public voting will count for 30% of the decision making process). Click here for more information on how to plug in.

This is the first year that SXSW has expanded its Panel Picker program to the music community, so we’re guessing that next year’s discussions could get even more interesting. And of course, we’ll keep you posted on any FMC action at SXSW. . .
