Top 30 Sessions to Vote for at SXSW 2012

There are 3,273 panel ideas in the Panel Picker for SXSW 2012. Some of them are duds; others look pretty darn cool. But flipping through all those ideas to find your favorites is a chore. To help you along the way, here are my favorites in the genres of marketing, mobile, tablet, social media and emerging technologies. Also sprinkled in a couple of wacky ones that you don’t want to miss. Good session titles certainly helped lure me in!  The deadline for voting is Friday September 2.

I also included a shameless plug for my own submissions on behalf of Next Issue – they are all tablet related. Please leave a comment at the bottom and let me know which sessions you are excited about.
