Round two of the 2007 SXSW Interactive Panel Proposal Picker is now live and ready for your voting. The public is able to shape the panel programming for the 2007 SXSW Interactive Conference this year and I’d like to encourage readers of this blog to vote (for my panel!)
Yes, I proposed a panel this year and after attending SXSW last year, its a topic I feel will be well received. Despite the fact that RSS is truly the glue of the new Internet, there was only one panel on RSS last year (and one on XML). The last few talks I’ve given on Marketing with RSS have had great responses from the audiences, so I though it would be fun to do this topic as a panel at SXSW.
My proposed panel title is “Using RSS for Marketing” and is listed under the “branding / marketing” and “web 2.0” categories. Here is the panel description:
Using RSS for Marketing
Now that RSS is starting to hit the mainstream, how can it be used for more than just syndicating blog posts? Savvy businesses are starting to use RSS for a variety of marketing purposes including advertising, iRSS, and podcasting. This panel will discuss the current trends and examples of RSS marketing, specific steps to use RSS for marketing, and RSS publisher best practices.
Anyone can vote even if you are not planning on attending the conference. If you’re doing anything related to the Internet, web technologies, interactive design, or entrepreneurship though, you absolutely need to attend this conference. Last year’s conference was a great experience – highly informative and motivating. Additionally, the whole event was highlighted by all the great people I met.
