Open Call: 2008 SXSW Interactive: Where Are The Black Tech Bloggers?

As some of you may have already heard, a panel I proposed to SXSW Interactive has been accepted. I have a great roster of names already, but I want to make sure I get a very good and balanced mix of the types of people who are on the panel.

Here's the gist of the proposal I submitted:

"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."

If you or someone you know might be interested in participating on this panel, please drop me a line in my contact form. I'm rounding out the list ASAP.
