After many, many hours of sifting through the SXSW PanelPicker to find proposals covering topics relating to social good, social impact, philanthropy, activism and causes of all kinds, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Public voting ended at the end of the day on Sunday, September 8, but securing programming that works for the SXSW Interactive community requires round-the-clock vigilance.
So, what's happening now in the world of social good? Check out the links below to get a quick run-down of some of the more interesting developments in the space over the last few days:
- 3D Printing Is a Matter of Life and Death
- 20 Inspiring Startups Aiming to Improve the World
- Gates Foundation Chief Executive to Step Down
- Satellite Images Help Amnesty International Gather Data While Keeping Witnesses Safe
Please remember that social good is a big part of SXSW Interactive -- so there will be many sessions devoted to this topic at the 2014 event in Austin. Follow us, friend us or put us in your Circles to see all the social good sessions for next spring when we announce the bulk of 2014 programming on Monday, October 14.
