SXSW has interactive panels…I’m going to look at some for great justice!

So the SXSW trendy crowd is out for blood. It just so happens that there are some cool topics being brought up on their website in interactive panel form…curious, maybe? I wasn’t really, but I decided to check it out just for the fun of it, but mostly for a grade in our Social Media class!

As I browsed through the seemingly endless list of accepted panels put in place by the committees and found a couple I thought were pertinent to the mainstream user of technology and what not. The first I stopped at was a panel found here(http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/5760) that talked about the inherent issues with creating an application or game specifically for the mobile platforms of today.  The panel was a bit brief, but I think it brought up some key questions that really ought to be asked in regards to the actual market for social media and its development process.

Another interesting panel (http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/7384) highlighted the effects of exposing others to get your own brand seen and built. The idea was interesting, as one usually thinks of building ones brand as more of a selfish-natured affair. Worth a read…

Last but not least, unless you are a trendy person and can’t be bothered like most of the people who voted on these panels, there is a poorly-edited, but altogether interesting panel about the rapid rise and plateau of online and social media, what they did right and wrong, and how to avoid their mistakes. You can check it out here (http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/5353)

That wraps it up for me, at least as far as SXSW goes *shudder*….now on to more unusual affairs…
