Last week, while I was on vacation meeting my new nieces and attending my 20th year high school reunion, the Panel Picker for SXSW 09 went live.
Although voting by prospective attendees is only “about 30%” of the decision making process, I figured I should promote my submissions here, and hope that readers of this blog might be interested in commenting on them or voting for them in the panel picker. (Although they call it the panel picker – no one can resist alliteration – it includes sessions which are solo speakers or dual speakers as well as more tradition 4-5 person panels).
So here are the sessions I proposed (links go directly to the Panel Picker):

Wednesday was day two of Web Content 2008, and I presented in the afternoon on the rise of user-contributed content and community, and the impact that’s had on content management.
I had thought about calling it “From Content Management to Community Management” or maybe “Content Management is Dead” but ended up instead with: “Upload, Tag, Share, Discuss: Content Management in the Age of Participation.”

Updated 5/31/08 – Like The Wealth of Networks, Two of these books are also available online: Two Bits and The Future of the Internet – and How to Stop It.
Here’s my summer reading list. Tell me what I’m missing.
It’s a bit heavy, I know, but this is the kind of stuff I find interesting.
What are you reading this summer? What key new text have I left out?

Damn, wish I had been there. Interaction08, The first annual conference from IxDA, the Interaction Design Association, was held last weekend (Feb 08-10) in Savannah, at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
The videos from IxDA are being uploaded and will end up on the Interaction08 site, but for now you can preview them in this Brightcove Channel.
Here’s Alan Cooper’s Keynote video, titled “An Insurgency of Quality,” in which he argues we should focus on Best to Market, not First to market.
He makes a strong argument for the importance of “post-industrial craftsmen” in the software industry. (Though I actually liked my Archos Jukebox for many years, I can see that it wasn’t best-to-market, and it has ended up sitting on the shelf while I use the iPod instead).
I love his pointing out the artificial scarcity of time and money, and the way in which culture conflict is what leads to zero sum negotiation.
