As a member of the SXSW Steering Committee, I should point out that it's time to put in nominations for the SXSW web awards.
I encourage you to reward innovators and inspirers with public recognition and free registration to this great gathering of creative folks each March in Austin; get those nominations in now while the entry fee is low.
The 7th Annual SXSW Web Awards uncovers the best new websites, discovering the digital artists and developers who fuel the web with creative energy and ideas. Finalists in the competition win registrations to the SXSW Interactive Festival and are honored by top industry minds at the SXSW Web Awards Ceremony on March 14.
The early entry deadline is Friday, October 17; entry fee is $10 for individuals and $20 for businesses if submitted by this date. Final deadline for entries is Friday, December 19.
