ionadas local at SXSW Interactive

SXSW Interactive 2010 may be seven months away, but part of it is heating up already: the “Panel Picker” has just launched. This is a website that allows you to have a voice on the topics for SXSW Interactive, by voting them up or down, and commenting on them.

Brian Combs of ionadas local is in the running this year, with this topic:

(Simple + Searchable) x (WordPress Websites) = Results

This session will explore how to use the blogging application WordPress as a platform for a company website. This approach is idea for a small business, as it allows a company to have a professional web presence without spending thousands of dollars. It takes advantage of the thousands of available WordPress themes, most of which are free. Even the expensive themes are generally under $100.

Best of all, if you want to have a custom look and feel designed for you later, it can be built around the WordPress platform, so that all your content is already loaded.

If this session is going to happen, however, we need your help. Please vote for Brian’s session at the SXSW Interactive Panel Picker.

Vote early. Vote often!
