Pick Our Panel! Become your own Social Network at SXSW.

I Am My Own Social Network from CreativeFeed on Vimeo.

South by Southwest (SXSW) traditionally allows attendees and the greater SXSW community to vote on potential panels and speakers. This year, a team at CreativeFeed threw their hat into the ring, and we are asking you to vote for us and persuade your friends and colleague to pick our panel.

“I am My Own Social Network” asks SXSW to disconnect at the most connected conference in the world. Like most of you, we are tired of the inexhaustible need to tweet and Instagram from every event we attend. At the ‘I am My Own Social Network’ event, attendees will hand in their mobile phones as soon as they join the meet up. They will not be able to mention in any conversation the company they work for, their start-up, or what they do for a living. After a 40-minute exercise, the group will discuss their social crutches and if they will change the way they approach the SXSW experience after the meet up.

To vote on the 2013 South by Southwest Panel Picker, visit

· Click on “sign in” – it will also let you sign up to gain access to the Panel Picker

· Once you are on the Panel Picker page, search for “I am My Own Social Network”

· Vote and ask your friends and colleagues to do the same. All votes need to be in by August 31, 2012.
