South by Southwest Interactive
South by Southwest has announced its picks for the 2012 Interactive conference, to be held March 9-13 in Austin, Texas. Among the featured speakers: Baratunde Thurston, director of digital for The Onion; Arianna Huffington, whose talk is titled "Content as a Means for Social Change, and Nick Denton, speaking on the "Mediocrity of Comment." The technology/gaming/Web/culture conference has a journalism track again with more than 50 panels. Several that look promising (the names in parentheses are the moderators; click the links to see who else is speaking):

In addition, Poynter's Stephen Buckley will moderate a session called "Storytelling Beyond Words: New Forms of Journalism," and I'll do a panel with Sohaib Athar called "Tweeting Osama’s Death: From Citizen to Journalist," inspired by this reporting and the reaction. Share your session recommendations in the comments.
