Quick update from SXSW

It's Sunday and while there's wireless everywhere this is the first time I've been able to collect my thoughts long enough to post a quick update. SXSW is fascinating, super-busy and a bit overwhelming.

Yesterday Lux and I led our core conversation on Pink Ghetto Blasting. It was well received, the people who attended represented a really broad range of involvement in sexual content online (from producers of sexual content to people who just only browse it occasionally but who care deeply about sexuality and reducing sexual stigma). Melissa Gira Grant was there for Valleywag and gave us a shout out here. Melissa, it was great to meet you there! Thanks so much for all your encouragement about the sex work, trafficking and human rights forum last week.

SXSW Countdown

As most of you know, Elizabeth has proposed a panel for SXSW Interactive 2008 called Pink Ghetto Blasters: Destigmatizing Sex via Online Community Building which she'll moderate with me, Lux Nightmare, Violet Blue, and Rachel Kramer Bussel as panel members. The online voting process is now drawing to a close; it ends Friday, September 21 at 11:59 PM, Central Time, so as of this writing, that gives us a little less than 36 hours to get all our friends to vote for us. Voting is easy; just go to the link for the panel above, go through a quick registration process, and give us five stars. That's all.

Pink Ghetto Blasters -- A new sort of superhero or a SXSW Panel?

That depends: It will only be a SXSW panel if enough people vote for it, so head over to our SXSW panel picker page and vote! (You'll need to register there to vote, but I promise you it isn't a terrible process, and it's not like you'll have to remember the password for long!)

SXSW (which stands for South By Southwest) is a week-long annual music, film and "emerging technologies" festival that takes place in Austin, TX. The SXSW Interactive festival focuses on the emerging technologies part.
