Well, that's the plan but I'll need your help to get there.
The good news is I'm not asking you to drive me in your second-hand Chevette. I'm just asking for your vote.
Here's the backstory: For those of you that don't already know this, each year, thousands of social media folks submit their ideas for sessions they'd like to present at SXSW for consideration by the organizers. The ones that make the first cut get posted to a panel picker where you (in the 2006 Time Magazine Person of the Year sense) vote on the ones you like best. The most popular sessions (this is crowdsourcing in action people, although let's be honest -- it's a popularity contest, right?) have a shot at making the agenda.
And here's the story itself: This year, I have a session based on microMARKETING up for your vote. Basically, I'll talk about the book (like I do at conferences since this is a, well you know, conference), maybe hand out some free copies, possibly take off my shirt, almost definitely snap a few pictures with the folks in the room. You can get more information HERE.
And here's the part you can play in that story: Well, first of all I'd love it if you could show your support and VOTE (thumbs up, please) for my session, even if you're not sure you'll have the opportunity to attend South By next year.
Thanks for your help. And while you're feeling helpful, you might also feel like showing some love to my fellow Poweredistas. A bunch of us -- including Jaffe, Quigley, Maltoni, van der Meer, Strout -- are up for some stage time. Get all the details and links on Aaron Strout's blog-like-object and, as Aaron himself writes ,"Vote Early and Vote Often." (Actually I think you can only vote once per session but you know what he means.)
