As happens every summer, thousands of proposals for panels and presentations get submitted for the following year’s South by Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Tex.
After those submissions are compiled and categorized, the voting begins. The list eventually comes down to the weirdest, smartest, fill-in-the-blankest panels that will be featured next March.
The Rally.org team has sent in three ideas for potential sessions at SXSW, one of the largest tech-industry gatherings (more than 30,000 attend each year). Voting is now open and continues through September 6. These proposals cover how to inspire people to stand up for causes they believe in, train prison inmates for technology jobs, and build community in an economy driven by people who want to change their world.
