We’re a company full of ideas. Smart ideas, crazy ideas, fun ideas…we think a lot and try to do our best to translate that into tools and thoughts that are useful to you.

With your help, we’d like to continue doing this at a little event called South by Southwest (SXSW).

We’ve submitted four talks this year, and we’d love your help getting them selected. If you won’t be able to attend, fear not: we will make sure these sessions get posted here. Follow the “vote” link to go to the voting page on the SXSW site.


Community-centered design: It’s not about the users

SaaS Metrics: Why Your Company Might Be Screwed

UserVoice COO Scott Rutherford will discuss what metrics really matter when launching a SaaS application as well as how to calculate them…and what will happen if you don’t!


Marketing to Gen Y: Don’t.

UserVoice Community Manager Evan Hamilton and Maura Lafferty of Maura Lafferty PR will discuss why traditional advertising doesn’t work for Gen Y, what does, and how your company can avoid being destroyed in the cultural revolution that is brewing.


The Myth of Experience Design

Joshua Rudd, Head of User Experience at UserVoice, discusses what can we learn from world builders and mythopoeic storytellers to help us create systems and interfaces that invite people into rich, delightful and unifying experiences.


Community and Influence: How to not piss people off

Marketing is social. But how do you maximize your return in social without appearing like a douchebag? Maria Ogneva from Yammer, Megan Berry from Klout, and Frank Eliason of Citigroup will discuss the power and pitfalls of measuring and acting on online influence, in a panel moderated by Evan Hamilton of UserVoice.

Thank you for helping us bring what we hope is some great insight to SXSW!
