Call for Votes - techPresident South by Southwest Panel on Next Generation Politics

BY Sarah Granger | Wednesday, September 2 2009

In 2000, candidates used e-mail and websites to transmit their messages online. 2004 introduced political blogs, and in 2008, social media played a major role in the election. As the 2010 election approaches and we look to 2012, what's next?

We submitted a panel to the South by Southwest Interactive Panel Picker process that will delve into this topic. Panelists will be Micah Sifry, Nicco Mele, Giselle Schmitz, Sarah Granger and Nancy Scola.

Please vote for "Next Generation Politics: Where Will We Go Next?" Voting concludes at the end of Friday Sept. 4th and all voters must register in order to be counted. Panels will be selected through a 3 prong process. The panel picker portion is just the first phase. The South by Southwest Interactive conference will take place in Austin in March, 2010.
