As any techie knows, the South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin is like Woodstock for the tech world and getting your own panel at the event is sure sign that you’ve “made it.”
Philly has been well-represented at the trend-setting event as the city even had its own session in 2010, led by the founders of Independents Hall.
However, SXSW panels don’t just happen overnight, they are subject to a six-month long process where the selection committee sifts though thousands of proposed panels to choose the lucky few that get time at the conference. The first part of that panel section process involves a “panel picker” where the community can vote on the panels they’d most like to see, and some local Philadelphians need your help to make it to the big stage next March.
After the jump, see the panels that have been submitted by locals and throw a vote their way to help Philly continue its strong presence in Austin for SXSW 2011. Oh, and you better hurry. Voting closes on the 27th at 1 p.m.

So head on over to the panel picker and get your vote on. Though it would be easier to write some sort of voting script to only vote for Philly panels. We’re just saying.
If you have a panel not included here, drop a comment and we’ll amend this post.
