Old Media, New Tricks looks to make ‘waves’ at SXSW Interactive 2010

August 17th, 2009

Robert and I had so much fun at last year’s SXSW Interactive Festivalhere’s a picture of us before we started — we decided to throw our hats in the ring again.

We have two panel submissions in the mix this year. They are:

  • Lifestreaming: The Next Great Social Media Frontier: As many of you know by now, I’ve been barking up the lifestreaming tree for months. I truly believe that it’s not only the next step for blogging, but a step forward for Web 2.0 as well. We’ll explain how stories can be better told through lifestreams, we’ll show you how lifestreaming can bring together and elevate your existing social media activities, how to “sell” the idea of lifestreaming to your bosses. (You can find its page on the SXSW PanelPicker here.)
  • Old Media Surfs the Google Wave: With the advent of Google Wave and other major shifts in the way we share information, it’s sink-or-swim time for traditional journalists. What are some of the forward-thinking members of the old media doing to stay afloat? (You can find its page on the SXSW PanelPicker here.)

If you’d like to weigh in on our panels, you’ll have to register for the PanelPicker.

We look forward to seeing you all at the next SXSW Interactive Conference!

    2 excellent topics, I am especially interested in Old Media Surfs the Google Wave. Traditional journalism really needs a new approach to digital infusion.

    Quick note:
    Obviously Google Wave isn't readily available to play with yet, but by SXSW it will be. I'm going to bring together media types who are already thinking about it and will be instrumental in using Wave at their organizations.

    Oh, and Daniel has been living and breathing live streaming for a while now. That panel will be fantastic.

    Ha — more like coughing and wheezing.

    Google Wave's going to change a lot of digital conversations, I feel.

    Daniil: Nice to see you on OMNT!

    Whoah, that was weird, Disqus – that's my out-of-office email msg. Apparently, it pulls it automatically :/

    Just posted this on http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/4869 – While I might not want to tune in to the play-by-play of most people's daily lives, I do appreciate how Daniel can break down the implications of new technologies in lay terms. Stream on – look forward to the panel.

    Also posted this on http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/3763 re Rob's Wave panel pitch:

    Powerful, timely panel idea, from proven SXSW presenters.

    From what I've seen during my colleagues' testing (google: “site:latimes.com 'google wave'”), Google Wave holds much promise for the future of journalism, whatever you want to call it (Social Journalism, Journalism 2.0+, et cetera).

    Should be interesting to see how far Wave has evolved come March.

    We would only know more tricks about google wave when it comes to public.

    Lifestreaming and Google Wave are definitely big topics this year. I'll definitely vote for both of them :)

    I also have a panel up for consideration titled “Here Come All the Latino Bloggers” (Latin bloggers in the US, citizen journalism in Latin America, the digital divide, and more)

    Would appreciate it if you checked it out.

    Here's the link to Mark Milian's early (critical) look at Google Wave http://bit.ly/16ARZ7 from the L.A. Times Tech blog:

    Will Google Wave be ready for prime time in two months? (Jul 30, 2009)

    I finally got my invite — typo in email address, hate that — and we're already seeing improvements since that first look.

    I could agree to what you said here, even I have no doubts about it.
