If you've been a long time blog reader, you'll remember that last March Brian, Sarah and I got the amazing opportunity to head down to Austin, TX for the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival. It was a great time and although the food was amazing, the festival and the amount that we learned were so much greater. Well, this year we're taking it a step further! The three of us, and two House Party execs, have submitted proposals to have a role at the festival this year and share our expertise with the South by Southwest community. It would be a huge honor and privilege for any of us to get selected - and there's a way you can help! SXSW gives the people the power by allowing a percentage of the selection process to come from community votes. So, we're asking for a huge favor - visit our page, take a look at our proposals - and vote for us I you think we're on to something!
