Vote for my PanelPicker Idea!

We recently proposed a panel for next year’s SXSW (South by Southwest) Interactive Festival and we’d love your vote. Here’s the panel description:

Preserving the You: Creating Memories Beyond the Chatter

We want to discuss how mobile and cloud-based technologies have paved the way not only for increased communication via Facebook, Twitter, and the like, but also for new ways of preserving our memories and individuality.

These days, each of us is continually involved in increasingly public conversations with friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and complete strangers. However, we all simultaneously live within our own worlds–ones consisting of delicate webs of experiences, inspirations, ideas, and interests. In our proposed SXSW panel, we will talk about how, in the face of the lightning-fast, community-driven landscape of Web 2.0, there exists a parallel world of technologies aimed at helping to capture and preserve who we are as individuals.

We will discuss the ways in which lessons learned from social media–availability, access, collaboration–can be applied to personally relevant content in an effort to preserve the YOU in the face of the WE.

Vote!

If you like our panel idea, please head on over to the Panel Picker page and vote for us. Voting closes on September 3rd. Thanks!

    At last I see someone, besides my group, looking at the untapped potential of focusing “in” vs. “out.” Preserving (and meaningfully organizing) experiences is the underlying philosophy of my own ever-expanding undertaking. Web 2.0 as an enormous enabler in this endeavor. The trick or sysephean task, depending on your outlook, is to understand and tap into the right set of drivers(e.g. sense of community, belonging, voyarism, narcissism, etc.) that would keep bringing people back to the keyboard. Once that’s done, there’s just the small detail of safe long-term access and storage (which becomes much more important). But that’s for another time.
