I recently was asked to be on a potential panel discussion, "Community, Measurement, And Belonging: Driving Green Through Technology", at South by Southwest (SXSW), the cool music, technology and movie festival that happens every March in Austin, Texas. My fellow panelees (that should be a word) would be my buddy Adam Shake of Twilight Earth and EcoTechDaily, Illana Westerman (
who I don't know anything about yet co-principal at Create with Context, along with panel organizer Bill Westerman), Amy Berry of Mariah Power, and potentially a few surprise guests.
I say 'potential' and 'would be' because before a discussion panel gets booked and put on the schedule it has to get voted onto the island.
So I'm drumming up votes.
If you have 60 seconds to spare and would like to put a great discussion on the books at South by Southwest, please click over to Community, Measurement, And Belonging: Driving Green Through Technology and give us a thumbs up. It does require registering (to minimize vote stuffing), but it's quick and painless.
Here's what we'd be talking about:
1.How can start-up green businesses get the word out through online community?
2.How is Twitter being used to quickly reach wide audiences?
3.How can we use technology to help people understand the impact of their everyday lives?
4.How can a series of simple, one-task iPhone apps help people understand their impact on our planet?
5.How is Mariah Power helping people measure wind using the iPhone?
6.How is Mariah Power using the iPhone to build community around wind power?
7.How do hybrid cars reinforce green driving habits through interaction?
8.How can technology make every person feel like they can really make a difference in the world?
9.How can technology make every person feel like they have a voice?
10.How can technology make it easier for everyone to be green?
