Next week on Monday, July 20th I'll be hosting a Mentor Session at the SxSW V2V conference in Las Vegas! The goal of the mentor program is to help conference attendees benefit from the knowledge of an established professionals in a one-on-one career counsel setting.  Mentor sessions are essentially individual Ask Me Anything consulting sessions where it's first come - first serve to talk about infographics, data visualization, business plans, presentations, marketing strategies, visual content, SEO or just running a small startup business.

Infographics Meetup! Additionally, on Tuesday, July 21st at 8-9pm I'll be hosting a DataViz and Infographics social meetup at the Lily Bar in the Bellagio.

SxSW Voting Guide for Infographics and Data Visualization

We Need Your Votes!

The 2015 SxSW Voting Guide for Infographics and Data Visualization

It’s already time to start thinking about the 2015 SxSW Interactive Conference!  This past year there were more than 15 fantastic sessions about infographics and data visualization, which I summarized in my recap post “The State of Infographics at SxSW 2014”.  We’re planning for 2015 to be even bigger for the world of infographics, but we need your help!

Event proposals have all been submitted, and the next part of the process is public voting on the presentations and panels to help the SxSW committee choose which events to include in the schedule of events.  All of you can vote on the proposals related to data visualization and infographics to help make sure they make it into the schedule.  Please register on the SxSW PanelPicker site and cast your votes for all of them or just your favorites.

The voting period is August 11th - September 5th!  There were over 3,000 proposals submitted this year, and the best proposals related to infographics and data visualization I could find are in the list below.  However, I’m sure there are more.  Please post links to any proposals I missed in the comments below.  We need your votes, social shares and comments on the SxSW site to help convince the committee to include these sessions. 

To make sure each of these are chosen we need you to:

First - Vote for each of your favorites

Second -  Share on social using the buttons on the SxSW pages to increase the counters

Third - Comment on their relevancy to you personally, the committee will review the comments

Help us make data visualization and infographics the best topic at SxSW 2015!
