The Present of Print: Paper's Persistence
    Saturday March 10, 2012 9:30am - 10:30am @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)
    It's common to call the printing press revolutionary. But the printing press did not eliminate handwriting. To this day, we have Moleskine notebooks, Post-It Notes, hipster PDAs. Similarly, the digital revolution will not kill print. We still buy books online and mark them up with pencils and highlighters. Pens are still more ubiquitous than digital mobile apps. People pay for photographic prints to hang on their fridges and walls. Bookstores do not merely exist; they legitimate neighborhoods. Every coffee shop has a bulletin board full of printed posters. Instead of predicting "The Future of Print in the Digital Age," this panel celebrates the present of print, and focuses on emerging print-digital hybrids. The panel consists of a printer, a couple of scholars, a poster distributor, and a print photographer who started a photo booth. Together we will explore projects that capitalize on the permeability of the boundaries separating manual, print, and digital realms.

Securing Your Data in a Target-Rich Environment
    Saturday March 10, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)
    Each year, thousands of technophiles descend upon Austin, bringing Internet-connected laptops, phones and tablets with them, and most of them think very little about keeping their personal communications secure. Open wireless networks in the convention center – and in hotels, bars and coffee shops – offer a convenient way to keep in touch with home, but also leave any data that is transmitted over those networks open to snooping by malicious individuals. In this session, host of Revision3 podcast Hak.5 and regular contributor on the TWiT network, Darren Kitchen, will walk attendees through live demonstrations of many ways in which their personal data are vulnerable while connected to the Internet at SXSW, and the steps they can take to keep that data private and safe. The tips and information from this session will benefit those who attend not only while they are at SXSW, but any time they sit down at their own local coffee shop and open up their laptop to fire off some email.

Is Social Media a Human Right?
    Saturday March 10, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)
    Earlier this year, United Nations special rapporteur Frank La Rue overwhelmingly declared access to the internet as "an indispensable tool for realizing a range of human rights, combating inequality, and accelerating development and human progress." In particular, the report focuses on the ability of the internet to facilitate communication and collaboration -- hallmark features of social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, both of which played important roles in this year's Arab Spring uprisings. This panel aims to discuss the topic of social media access for populations which are typically denied internet-based contact with other humans: prisoners, the homeless, and the urban and rural poor.

Better Food Through Open Data Standards
    Sunday March 11, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)

    There is an explosion in the number of services created to help people make better choices about how we produce, consume, and interact with food. Challenges related to the accuracy and completeness of data hamper the rate of innovation. A panel of leading food, data and technology doers shares their initial framework for an open standard for reporting, recording and sharing food information. Hear how recipe sites, restaurant menu wranglers, open government developers, urban agronomists, provenance geeks and food policy activists are collaborating on an interoperable standard. Panelists will share their unique perspectives and invite new collaborators to expand, refine, and put into practice an open standard. The open food data standard describes all aspects of food, in a way that allows technologists to support and enhance the success of the local food economy. Come find out how you can take part in the generation of an open data standard for food that reflects the values we place in food.

2012: You Bet Your Asteroid the World Won't End
    Monday March 12, 2012 9:30am - 10:30am @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)
    Niburu! Comet Elenin! Asteroid YU55! It's not the end of the world, really. NASA and Discover's "Bad Astronomer" Phil Plait are here to explain why. This panel discussion will take on the Internet factor in the cause and cure of 2012 hysteria. We'll look at how urban legends spread, data gets shared and myths get debunked online. See the web-based tools the Near-Earth Objects office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory uses to keep an eye on asteroids and comets (and let you know about them), and how the amateur astronomy community is helping in the effort to track low-flying space rocks. The Bad Astronomer himself shares rumor-slaying tales from behind the scenes of his popular blog. The sky isn't falling, but misconceptions are. Join us.

Get Excited and Make Things with Science
    Monday March 12, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)

    The relationship most adults have with science is one of observation: watching government agencies explore on behalf of us, but not actually exploring it ourselves. Science should be disruptively accessible – empowering people from a variety of different backgrounds to explore, participate in, and build new ways of interacting with and contributing to science. By having a fresh set of eyes from those who solve different types of problems, new concepts often emerge and go on to influence science in unexpected ways. A grassroots effort called Science Hack Day aims to bridge the gap between the science, technology and design industries. A Hack Day is a 48 hour all-night event that brings different people with good ideas together in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking, and building ‘cool stuff’. By collaborating on focused tasks during this short period, small groups of hackers are capable of producing remarkable results.

Who Needs a Fashion Cycle? I've Got Social Media
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ Driskill Hotel (Citadel) (604 Brazos Street, Austin, TX 78701)

    The traditional cycles of fashion trends, consumer buying patterns and clothing manufacturing no longer exist in the fashion industry – fashion is ‘now’ in all its capacity and its current pace brings with it a variety of side effects. A traditional fashion cycle refers to the processes of adoption and rejection of a particular trend/activity etc. We will discuss how this definition has evolved in the today’s fashion digital era. We will investigate how digital and technological developments have affected today’s fashion industry from a media, consumer and retail perspective. We will assess the growing importance of social gaming and community to the fashion industry. We will examine social shopping, instant gratification and the saturated world of fashion information and moving trends. In conclusion, we will discuss whether we will be able to sustain the current consumption of information and flow of material and how best to operate in this new world.
