As Butch Lazorchak (Library of Congress) points out in a recent post on The Signal:
SXSW has now become so popular that the jockeying for presentation slots now commences months before the conference. The process of choosing panels includes a crowd-sourced aspect called the Panelpicker that engages the public to vote on the panels they’d be more interested in attending at the conference.
The Panelpicker for the 2014 South By Southwest conference is open through September 6th, and features several of interest to the library, archives, and museums community. Lazorchak’s post helpfully points out some of the more interesting panels, including panelists from the National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA), Historypin, the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), and the Harvard Library Lab.
