    Here’s my proposal for a talk titled “The Ballmer Peak: How Alcohol Intake Affects Coding.” http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/3115

    It’s a tongue in cheek, Mythbusters-style study to see if the Ballmer peak really exists. I’ve assembled crack team of coders to imbibe various amounts of alcohol and compete to build a solid web app over a weekend.

    Last minute votes would be much appreciated 😉

    I voted for “Beyond Twitter: Can Social Technologies Effect Global Change?“.

    I know that Tracy Pell has done great work in helping connect people in Africa with folks here in America through social networking and micro-economic solutions.

    This is an awesome list here, Gina! I’ve just gone ahead and thumbed them up : ). The ones I’m mostly looking to attend are about the shift to real-time that so many web technologies are moving toward–and how to filter and search that. One example: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/5112
