If you’re attending SXSW this weekend…

If you’re one of the thousands of people attending SXSW Interactive this weekend, you can come see me pitch one of my ideas live on a panel called Worst Website Ever: That’s So Crazy It Just Might Work.

Andy Baio will serve as moderator, as eight creative people each take turns pitching their worst possible website ideas to venture capitalist David Hornik, who would probably be crazy to provide funding for any of our proposals. But who knows? Maybe he’ll decide that one idea is so crazy that it just might work.

I’m sure the competition will be tough, as the full panel also includes Lane Becker, Jeffery Bennett, Ben Brown, Katie Spence, Michael Buffington, Lia Bulaong, and Merlin Mann. All are smart people with smart ideas. But whose smart idea will be the worst?

Find out this Saturday at 5:00 in Room 9, wherever that is.

More info here.


I’m fairly new to your blog, am not going to SXSW, and do not know the rest of the people on the panel. However, if the ideas that you post on this blog are a representative sample of what you can come up with, I think your bad ideas should be deliciously awful.

Nuts. I left Austin this weekend, but thought for sure I’d be back in time for all the cool SXSW stuff. Alas.

So.. what happened?

It went as well as could be imagined, I thought. I’ll post a follow-up once I have audio or video. -David
