SXSW 2012 LogoToday, SXSW launched their PanelPicker voting for SXSW Interactive 2012. For those new to SXSW, the festival brings together the best of film, interactive and music in Austin, TX. The 19th annual SXSW Interactive Festival kicks off on March 9, 2012 and features the best of online, wireless, gaming and social media…and may include some of the Discovery family.

Discovery Communications has proposed four panels covering social TV (featuring Deadliest Catch‘s Capt. Keith Colburn and Storm ChasersReed Timmer), online news (with the Discovery News team), podcasting (thanks to HowStuffWorks’ Stuff You Should Know team) and on converting women’s interest to general interest online (with HowStuffWorks’ Stuff Mom Never Told You).

Additionally, our friends at VolunteerMatch have put forth a panel featuring Discovery and discussing our CSR efforts. Click on the links below to read about the panels and, most importantly, cast your vote:

SXSW is a community-driven event and public votes make up 30% of the decision process (complemented by recommendations by staff and the Advisory Board). Thanks for taking a look at our panels and voting…we hope to see many of you in Austin in March 2012!
