You’ve now got until midnight on Sunday July 17th (today) to get your draft proposal into the SXSW Panel Picker for potential SXSW 2012 talks. Strictly speaking it’s a 23:59 deadline, but in the words of SXSW:
With all the emails and questions we’ve received in the past 24 hours, we realize you still have a lot of questions about how to write your best SXSW Panel Picker proposal. Now is your chance to perfect the programming idea you’ve been working on and get your idea in before it’s too late.
Personally I just think people are looking at SXSW instead of taking part in LA’s Carmageddon, but whatever the reason, you can boogie on over to panelpicker.sxsw.com.
