You might have seen the buzz on the 20x200 and Hey, Hot Shot! blogs or on Twitter, but I thought I would give you all a gentle reminder to vote YES for the most wonderful panels on the SXSW PanelPicker!
Ms. Jen Bekman has proposed a talk titled, Inbox Hero: Why Newsletters Matter More Than Ever. Even if you haven't been following Jen's Twitter posts about Slow Web, I'm sure you are familiar with the idea that it is very difficult to sort through all of the mess on the internet and read content that is valuable, well crafted and carefully considered. Jen's newsletters are a stellar example of what newsletters should be, sending you must-read, compelling information straight to your inbox. Now you know she's the expert, give her a thumbs up!
Sara Distin and Youngna Park, Associate Director and Associate Producer at Jen Bekman Projects respectively, pitched a panel titled, Supporting Artists with Social Media. Using their experience as artists as well as in important roles at Hey, Hot Shot! and 20x200, Sara and Youngna will be providing artists with the knowledge to set themselves apart and find new audiences using the plethora of social media tools. They've become masters of this subject, so you are gonna want to hear what they have to say!
Voting closes September 4th.
