Guest Post on Technosailor, SXSW Panel Up for Vote

I was privileged to write a guest post for Aaron Brazell of Technosailor for his Green Tech blogging week. There were so many great guest posters – be sure to go over and check us all out and weigh in on Green Tech issues. My post is on the hidden human cost of government forcing citizens to go green before giving them access to the tools they need to survive the change.

I’m also nervous. I have always wanted to present at SXSW, and this year I finally bit the bullet and submitted a panel idea for SXSW 2009. If you are a member of the SXSW community, and you’d like to hear a panel on “Can Social Media Save The World?” offering concrete solutions to real world problems using social media, please go vote it up. Voting is open until August 29th, 2008.

I have several posts and reviews on the way for Uptown Uncorked this weekend as well, and also will be at NH Media Makers on Sunday if you want to talk about social media with me in person (sorry to have to miss TechSet, Boston. I need two of me sometimes, I swear.)

Also, in the spirit of housekeeping, I don’t mind getting pitched by PR people, it’s your job after all (we’ve been getting a lot of pitches this week), just please make sure it is social media relevant. Hey, I can dream, right? The email for PR pitches and other press contacts is here.
