Dear Lazyweb (Boondoggleweb),

I will certainly be attending SXSW music in 2011, but I'm probably going to skip interactive this time.

Unless, that is, someone's got a panel they want me to be on, because that would A) give me something to do and B) get me a free ticket. Yeah, that's a little crass, but it's just not worth it to me otherwise. I was pretty bored at interactive last year, and the film festival was organized so poorly that I didn't actually see any films.

So, anyone?

    I would go to this just to watch the public snarking.

    Would you please propose a panel on making localized newspaper and government representative equivalents to the letter-to-the-editor interface here so your fans don't have to work so hard defending fun? SXSW gets a lot of open government and citizen activism supporters, so I would hope that would get you a free ticket and the ability to meet a bunch of geeks who want to make something more useful than socially-enabled whatever passes for what geeks want to make these days.

      I don't see how what I asked could be interpreted as "suggest ideas for panels for me to personally do all the leg-work of proposing, organizing and lobbying for."

      Also, "hey everybody let's talk about writing yet another spam CGI" sounds slightly less than fascinating.
