Every year for the last few decades, creatives of all stripes congregate in Austin, TX, around mid-March to share ideas, network, and maybe go to the occasional party. GeekDads have presented at SXSW a few times, but only when we felt we had something vital to say.
This year, we have a bunch of ideas, but we won’t get anywhere without your help.
I know, I know, it sounds smarmy, but a big part of the selection process is showing there are people out there who want to hear what we have to say, and this year we’ve decided to talk about some ideas beyond our norm.
Please take just a few minutes, register with SXSW (it’s relatively painless) and then click on the thumbs up for each of the topics (links below).
If you are feeling really generous, share the link on Facebook, Twitter, and/or LinkedIn—all of the links to do that are on the left side of the page. Oh, and share this article wherever possible as well.
And if you REALLY want help, add a comment at the bottom of the voting page.
Voting ends this TODAY, so DO NOT DELAY and please SPREAD THE WORD!
