@KratzPR Thanks for the shoutout for our Tricks of the Trade: Grow Unity in Your Community panel. We have representation from Community Managers from some of the biggest B2C(Whole Foods), B2B(IBM) and Non-Profit Marketing Orgs (WOMMA, Social Media Club) and it will be highly interactive with actual take aways. Hope to see you and all your readers at SXSW and appreciate any thumbs up and comments for our session. And I am known for buying pitchers of margaritas and beers for my social media friends; )

I think we can all agree that #SXSW clearly needs more content about zombies and bunny rabbits.  My panel is called "Creating Interactive Nightmares" - http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/4677 and I may or may not be willing to use my staff of chainsaw-wielding clowns to help support my cause. Thanks!
