Farmers, 140conf and SXSW

This coming week is packed with excitement. For those who may not be aware, SXSW will be running from March 11 – 20, in Austin, Texas. Of particular interest is the SXSW Interactive portion.

“SXSW® Interactive features five days of compelling presentations from the brightest minds in emerging technology, scores of exciting networking events hosted by industry leaders, the incredible new SXSW Trade Show and an unbeatable lineup of special programs showcasing the best new digital works, video games and innovative ideas the international community has to offer. Join us for the most energetic, inspiring and creative event of the year.”

On Sunday, March 13, at 5:00 pm, I will have the opportunity to participate on the panel Agvocacy 2.0: Adding a Human Voice to the Farm  , with Chris Chinn, Emily Zweber, Zach Hunnicutt and Marla Schulman. We are looking forward to sharing how a diverse group of farmers and ranchers have voluntarily come together to help others share their agricultural story with the public and reconnect through the AgChat Foundation.

Also, you don’t want to miss Jeff Pulver and his series of #140 Conference presentations beginning on Saturday, March 12, from 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm. Jeff will lead off with Birth of the #BackChannel  and is followed by some great presenters including Nelson de Witt “My Family’s Incredible Story”   and an incredible story by Ori Bengal “Traveling the World with the Real-Time Web”. If you have the opportunity to meet Jeff, do not miss it. 

I look forward to meeting another great group of folks on this journey. See y’all there!

    Jeff:

    I am so looking forward to moderating “AGvocacy 2.0” at SXSW. What you and your team are doing in the realm of using social media to connect Americas farmers is nothing short of brilliant and I am honored to help you in that goal.

    Here’s to a fabulous presentation and celebrating the efforts of AGchat.org in Austin!
