Follow Up: Where Are The Black Tech Bloggers?

sxsw_interactive_header.jpg

I've proposed a panel for 2008 SXSW to answer that question. If you feel it's a conversation that needs to be had, even if you can't attend the event, you can go vote to make sure it happens.

Here's a summary of the idea I proposed:

In August 2007, Podtech Vlogger Loren Feldman got dressed up in black face (a tech nigga nonetheless) and asked the question, "Where Are The Black Tech Bloggers?" While Feldman's video drummed up controversy and was labeled as racist, it got the blogosphere thinking and talking. Especially the black tech bloggers. Here's your chance to discover that they really exist, and to learn how they think about technology, and well, people like Feldman.

Also, if you have a Website that launched in the calendar year 2007, you may be eligible for a Web award. Go check out the rules and be sure to enter your site.
