It’s the time of the year again: SXSW is looking for suggestions for panels and presentations for the 2011 edition which will as always take place in March in Austin, TX.
This year I have submitted not one but two panels since I will attend the Interactive as well as the Music part – one idea for each part of the conference.
I would appreciate if you could vote for my ideas in the SXSW PanelPicker, this is what I’m suggesting:
1. Digital Content: What Books Should Learn From CDs
I always found it fascinating that other content industries have difficulties learning from the mistakes of the music industry from the last ten years. This panel will invite people from the music and book publishing industries and discuss what they can learn from each other. You can vote here.
2. Entrepreneurs in Music
I will invite different music entrepreneurs and compare how they’re making it in their respective fields. Starting with a musician I will also get a start-up CEO, a indie record label boss and a band manager on the panel and talk about the joy and struggle of working independently in music. You can vote here.
Voting closes 27th August. Also, make sure you support my fellow OpenMusicMedia organizers, you can find a list of their suggested panels here.
