SXSW 2008: Portland presenters?

Sure, sure. SXSW takes place in Austin. But that doesn’t stop a bunch of us Portland types from making the trek down to Texas.

Now, the (apparently completely buggy) voting system for SXSW 2008 panels is open, which means it’s time to choose the panels you want to see while you’re down there.

That’s all well and good. But there are nearly 700 panels on which to vote. If you’re like me, you could use some help culling the herd.

Well, I’ve heart rumors of a few Portland folks who were proposing presentations, but I only know of one for sure. That’s Dawn Foster who has proposed two panels:

If you’re a Portland presenter hoping to make the SXSW bill, drop a link in the comments so we know what’s what. If we get enough comments about different panels, I’ll post a round-up with all of the proposed Portland presenters and their topics.

And, who knows? Maybe, just maybe, we’ll have a little Silicon Florist get together down there, with all of the Silicon Forest attendees.

Stranger things have happened.
