Panels

A few folk have asked about what sort of thing we’re looking for regarding the panels. Well, to put it simply, whatever you like – as long as it relates to the internet or social media. You’ll have about 5 minutes to tout your talk, then it opens up to the rest of the attendees to discuss, debate, give feedback and generally chip in. This is a two-way dialogue.

You might want to talk about your latest online project to gain the wisdom of others’ perspectives or share things you’ve learnt along the way. Maybe you’d like to provide your top ten favourite memes on teh internetz, challenge perceptions of a particular form of social media, demonstrate where an online presence works well or just spend 5 minutes educating the room about the most famous cats in cyberspace. This really is open to you – we want the event to have the capacity to be both serious and fun. You can see the sort of panels hosted at SxSW here if you fancy a bit more inspiration.

You’ll make the event, not us. This is your event. And that, dear panel hosts, is the best thing about all of this!
