CxO Poll for SxSW 2010And so it begins… SxSW 2010 rises from the Austin skyline like a gleaming beacon of people, technology… and beer. This is my third year at SxSW and my second year speaking.

I am especially grateful to be part of an amazing panel headed up by Jared Goralnick of AwayFind and SET Consulting.

The way the panel came together is a testament to what SxSW is all about. People connected with technology. Beer will be added later. :)

The panel itself is aptly named as well…

“Wave and Communication’s ®evolution: Better Than Being There?”

Also on the panel are Daniel Raffel from Yahoo! and Casey Whitelaw from Google. We’ve yet to meet in person but as the panel topic indicates this group came together in self referential style.

Shhhhh... Super secret @bandwidthIn fact, this week the Triangle Social Media Club met for a sneak preview with #OurHashTag. This meeting was part of a light preview for SxSW 2010 for North Carolina based attendees and speakers.

After a few rounds of local microbrew (anyone remember what we were drinking? link?) the SxSW speakers presented short decks/pitches describing their talks, panels, and core conversations for SxSW 2010. We also got an amazing demo from that I hope to review in a future post.


Here is my pitch to the folks attending and it includes a little bit about how the Jared Goralnick panel came to be.

(Update: This comment on an unrelated post elsewhere concerning “came to be” made me smile)
