In a fun piece of spontaneous local guerilla activity, Jay Drayer from CareFlash (based in Houston, Tx) who you’ll see at Health 2.0 this Fall, is also trying to get a Health 2.0 panel accepted at the media hipsters conference known as South by Southwest in Austin, Tx next spring.
Now I’m not a big fan of democracy and rabble rousing in these matters, but South by South West is. Apparently the way that works is for people who want to see Health 2.0 featured there to go to the 2009 SXSW Interactive Panel Picker and vote and leave enthusiastic comments. You know what to do!
Jay’s panel is one of the panel candidates for the Human / Social Issues track. Christopher M. Schroeder, CEO of the HealthCentral Network, also has a panel that is up for the popular vote in the SXSW Panel Picker (Business / Entrepreneurial category). Worth checking out the panel description? He’s a fantastic speaker.
