    SXSW Panel voting is now open – we need your vote

    We hate groveling for votes, we really do. Many conferences now days base their panels upon the popularity of a topic (or for that matter a speaker) and in all cases prior, we have skipped asking our clients and friends for a vote, but this time is different- we swear! South by Southwest Interactive is one of the largest, most industry significant conferences in the world and the panelists like us have to jump through an extensive series of hoops and compete with thousands of other potential panelists before we get up on that stage.

    Why the new era of social media strategists must be more like doctors

    Because social networks are no longer in beta and those throwing theory around about whether or not it is worthwhile (or if it even works) are stuck in 2007, we should pause to review what social media can do for a company.

Social media can form public opinion about your company whether your company is present or not. Think about when you get together with your friends... if you've just had a horrible burger, you're going to blurt out that they ...
