Doing Good at SxSW Interactive 2013

It’s that time of year again, cats and kittens. SxSW Interactive 2013 content programming is up for grabs!

Last year were thrilled & honored to have four Beaconfire ideas selected for sxsw Interactive 2012, as well as to be involved with two other well received sessions. This year, we’re hoping lighting strikes again and that some of our sessions will be part of SxSW 2013, along with those from our friends and partners in the NPtech world.

So without further ado, please vote for all these great ideas by August 31st, and leave comments if you feel inspired since SxSW places a more weight on community narrative than vote totals alone.
