SXSW: Let The Panel Picking Begin!

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Tags:#news#web mike melanson Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… It might be just about the last thing on your mind, but if you haven’t started planning for next year’s South By Southwest Interactive festival down in Austin, Texas, then now’s the time. Why’s that? The 2011 SXSW Panel Picker, the festival’s interactive, crowd-sourced method for choosing the conference’s panels, has opened today and will be accepting entries until early July.The Panel Picker was first used to help select panels for the interactive conference in 2007 and was joined for the first time last year by the music and film conferences, which, according to the company’s press release, resulted in more than 2,800 submissions.Here’s how it works:PanelPicker™ is a two-step online system. Step One encourages the community to submit proposals for programming at SXSW through the PanelPicker™ interface at http://panelpicker.sxsw.com beginning Tuesday, June 15, 2010 through Friday, July 9, 2010. Additional information including categories, presentation formats, and the new user-generated tags feature built in to PanelPicker™ can be found at http://sxsw.com/panelpicker_faq. Step Two allows the community to browse all of these ideas — and rate which of these proposals they think are the best fit for the March 2011 event. Community voting begins Monday, August 9, 2010 and will continue through Friday, August 27, 2010. While some could be heard grumbling at last year’s SXSWi that the panel picker was at fault for outdated panels, SXSW argues in its FAQ that this method gives attendees time to pre-plan what panels they’ll attend each year. The Panel Picker is also not responsible for choosing 100% of the conference’s content, as several slots are left open until January or February to allow for late-breaking developments. Anyone with access to the Internet can participate in the Panel Picker and public votes account for 30% of the decision-making process, with 30% going to staff votes and 40% to the SXSW advisory board, which is comprised of “experienced industry professionals whose advice and insights about programming and other event-related issues are trusted by the SXSW staff,” according to the FAQ.While the new “user-generated tags” feature is simply a way to help better categorize panels (and not a way to deal with some of the ridiculous hashtags we saw last year), the festival is planning on having a way for panel creators to have input on their session’s hashtag once the title is finalized in the second step of the voting process. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Dustin Johnson powers his way to win at Kapalua

Johnson effectively ended the tournament when he made three birdies on the opening six holes, saved par from a front bunker to a back pin on the par-3 eighth, and then birdied the par-5 ninth for a six-shot lead.One shot defined the tournament — a drive on the 433-yard 12th hole that went 432 yards and 6 inches.Johnson, who on Saturday holed a 70-yard chip down the hill for eagle, ripped his drive, picked up his tee and walked away. It’s a blind shot over the hill, with a strong wind at his back, so he never saw the ball race down the hill, onto the green and head straight to the cup until stopping 6 inches away.He played the 12th hole in four shots on the weekend.That stretched his lead to seven shots, and the rout was on.Johnson joined Stuart Appleby (three times) and Geoff Ogilvy (twice) as the only multiple winners at Kapalua. He also won in 2013 when it was shortened to 54 holes because of wind so strong the start of the tournament was delayed for three days.Harman closed with a 72 to finish third, while Hideki Matsuyama (66), Pat Perez (69) and Rickie Fowler (70) were another shot behind.Johnson went 66-65 on the weekend.
