In March 2010, thousands of designers, developers, writers, and thinkers will descend on Austin, TX for the annual SXSW Interactive Festival.   The five-day conference will host a wide-range of speakers and panelist to discuss trends, issues, and other topics related to the interactive space.  We’ve learned a lot from building our business in the last few years and we want to give back to the community with panels that go behind the scenes on how we (and other companies) operate.  Below are two panel ideas we’ve submitted to SXSW.  Help us make them happen by taking a moment to vote for them by following the links below! (Voting ends Friday, Sept 4th, so act now!)
