I’d like to invite those of you coming to SXSW Interactive, to my “Salon” (Monday, March 16th, from 6:30pm – 7:30pm) focusing on how to organize real world groups around topics that you’re interested in. The conversation will lean towards technically-oriented communities like Refresh Austin, but will also provide the foundation for groups that are interested in other subjects.
One of the best aspects of the Salon/Core Conversation format is that it is meant to be a two-way dialog instead of a panel – everyone is encouraged to contribute. This is an ideal way for us to share tips, tricks and stumbles so we can all improve our groups when South-By is over.
If you have specific subjects you’d like to discuss, please leave them in the comments or use my contact form and I’ll include them in my topic list.
The Salons are held in the evenings from 6:30 – 7:30, which makes them the latest bit of programming in SXSW’s lineup, but they’ll have some food and drinks to balance it out. Hopefully we can turn this into a lively discussion for all.
Here’s the panel info:
