We’re speaking at SXSW 2011!

, Tuesday, December 14th, 2010 at 2:55 pm

We made it! Last night, the final round of SXSW Interactive panels was announced, and I’m thrilled to share that not one, but two of Beaconfire’s panels were accepted. We couldn’t be more excited to speak at SXSW 2011.  Thank you SO much to all of you who voted for us! We couldn’t have gotten here without you.

In “Method Tweeting for Nonprofits“, we’ll take advice from the Bard and talk about how to play a role while tweeting on behalf of a nonprofit.  We will pick the brains of people who live this challenge daily – and have a little fun with Shakespeare along the way.

In “Money for Nothing and your Software for Free“, we’ll hear from developers, consultants, and veteran nonprofit staffers about how they use free (and Free) software, and the pitfalls they’ve found in choosing free, open source, and low-cost tools. We’ll also tell you have free software is like free beer… or maybe free kittens.

Now, we can’t wait for March.  Hope to see you in Austin!
