It’s that time of year again. South by Southwest 2018 voting starts today! Last year, two of our UX strategists, Caitlin and Tommy, gave a collaborative workshop on the Symbiosis of Brains, Marketing, & Design. We had such a blast, we just have to go back — but we need your help.
PRPL has submitted two topic ideas for the panel sessions this year, and we only have until August 25th to get as many votes as we can. The SXSW PanelPicker is in full swing and ready for you to cast some love for our team. First, you’ll have to make an account here, and then vote for Purple, Rock, Scissors here.
Once you vote for one (or both, definitely both) of our submissions, take a screenshot and share on Twitter and tag us (@prplrckscssrs). Your name will be entered in a raffle for a whole lotta PRPL swag and a giant thank-you.
Check out our topics below and follow the link to vote for each submission.

We as a society have seen many positive outcomes of social media, and also some not-so-good things. Nevertheless, we are all contributing to the shifting meta-culture. So let’s dissect the dark depths and silver linings of technology, explore some very likely future scenarios, and challenge everyone to think about our trajectory with the use of tech-enabled social platforms.
