Lots of important announcements this week for the SXSW family of events

Yesterday we revealed the majority of confirmed sessions for SXSW Interactive 2014, largely sourced via SXSW PanelPicker. With more than a thousand industry experts speaking in March, expect lots of buzz around emerging themes like "Privacy and Security," "Global Impact and Policy," "Design and Development," "Art, Science & Inspiration," and "Intelligent Future."

Following our announcement, we held a Reddit AMA with our community to answer any SXSW Interactive or programming-related questions. If you missed the back-and-forth, check it out here.

Also, remember that SXSW Film and SXSWedu announce their first round of programming today (Tuesday, October 15) -- visit their websites for details. Likewise, SXSW Music will make their content announcement tomorrow (Wednesday, October 16).
