Two Nashville SXSW Panel Pitches Made It Past The First Round! Help Them Make It All The Way!

SXSW 2010

Steve Keller and Katy Kirby collaborated on two panel concepts for SXSW 2010.  They just found out  that both made it past the first round.  Community voting is a large part (although not the only part) of deciding the programming content of the festival.  They got together on this not for self-promotion, but because we believe that this festival/conference is important and that the terrific things going on in Nashville have been sorely underrepresented. 

Please consider voting for these panel submissions and helping to spread the word in any way you can.  Feel free to forward this email along to any interested parties. (You do have to register to vote.) Voting closes at the end of the day on Friday, September 4th.

Here they are:
