Future15 Lineup for 2011: Shorter is Better
At the 2010 SXSW Interactive Festival, we launched a series of short-form panel content called Future15s. These fast-paced sessions proved to be very popular with attendees — so we are excited to bring them back for the 2011 event. Posted after the jump is the list of these Future15 sessions for this March in Austin. Each title reflects one 12-minute solo speaking slot, which is followed by a short, three-minute break — then the next speaker begins his or her presentation. All SXSW Future15 speaking slots within a given timeslot cover different angles and approaches to the one particular theme.
