Foodie’s Guide to SXSW Panel Picking

By  |  2 Comments

Vote with your stomach.

SXSW (South by Southwest) is a film, music and interactive media festival that takes place every March in Austin, TX. The Interactive program features five days of presentations and panel discussions from some of the brightest minds in digital media.

Each year, thousands of panel ideas are submitted to SXSW, and the best are selected to be part of a public selection process that allows the online community (i.e., people like you & me) to vote on which panels will make it into the final program.

So this is where you come in. As a fellow foodie and home cook, please help us support the culinary-themed panels listed in our following “2011 Foodie’s Guide to SXSW Panel Picking” list.

Voting is quick and easy, and it ends on Friday, August 27th… so vote today!
