If you have great ideas, stories or case studies to share, there are two speaking proposal deadlines coming up this week….

**  SXSWi (South by Southwest Interactive) digital/tech creatives conference in Austin, Texas in March 2013. It’s only the biggest technology-related annual conference on the planet….20,000 of the most interesting geeks you’ll ever meet.

The unique PanelPicker process peer voting means that you need a really punchy title and great description for your presentation, in addition to – DUH! – knowing what the heck you’re talking about.

Proposal deadline: Friday, July 20, 2012.

**  140 Characters Conference/State of NOW Small Town in Hutchinson, Kansas on November 8, 2012. This event is a series of short presentations (no slides – yay!) on how the social web intersects with small towns and rural areas.

Proposal deadline: Friday, July 20, 2012.

Will I see you there?
