Going to SXSW in 2009? Vote for some Rails Panels
South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of festivals that take place each year in Austin, TX. Over the past few years, many Rubyists have made it to the event (Twitter's initially popularity storm was brewing at SXSW 2007!) and Ruby / Rails related events have been popular. SXSW have unveiled an "Interactive Panel Picker" for next year's festival and there are 15 Rails related proposals ready to vote for.
