Panel Picking Time for SXSWi

Time is running out to vote for the panels and topics you would like to see discussed at next years SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, TX.

SXSW Interactive features five days of compelling presentations from the brightest minds in emerging technology, scores of exciting networking events hosted by industry leaders and an unbeatable line up of special programs showcasing the best new websites, video games and startup ideas the community has to offer.

I have a couple of panels up for consideration and if you haven't yet voted, I would appreciate a "thumbs up."

Wikis are Wonderful - or Are They? - Corporate wikis are not wikipedia, but are they of any use? The adoption of wiki technology in companies and organizations of all sizes is growing fast; but is it hype, or are there real benefits? The panel will discuss the use of wikis, when they work, and when they don’t.

Spandex and Software: Can Comics Get You To Read The Manuals? - Google Chrome wasn’t the first product to be accompanied by documentation in the form of a comic book. Sequential art based messaging is everywhere, and has a long history. In today’s more visually literate society is the humble comic book placed to be the next big thing in user docs?

And while you are visiting the panel picker, here's a few more panels that I'd recommend checking out and voting for.

Sarah O' Keefe on "Will User-Generated Content Wipe Out Technical Writers?"

Rahel Anne Bailie on Greening Your Content: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle."

Brenda Huettner on "All About Audience: Improving User Experience."

Charlene Kingston on "Designing Projects That Change User Behavior," and "Reach Your Diverse Community With A Persona Strategy."
