This is a show that I wish I could see. The last time I saw Santigold, she was still Santogold and I saw her perform at after party in New York City back when she opened for Bjork. Anyway, go see this show. Her back-up singers/dancers are fierce. March 13 at La Zona Rosa.

Ananda Leeke, founder of the Digital Sisterhood Network, describes this community as the currency women use to create relationship wealth through the connections they make, conversations they have, communities they build, causes they support, collaborative partnerships they establish, and commerce they engage in with women they meet online and offline. While the faces of technology rock stars and social media gurus don’t typically reflect what you’d expect to find in digital sisterhood, this panel will explore the thriving, relationship wealth-based community that has grown up. A diverse group of panelists will explore how women entrepreneurs cultivate and strengthen digital sisterhood in their entrepreneurial efforts; what happens when women tap into the power of digital sisterhood in their businesses; and how they use digital sisterhood as a business model.Source: panelpicker.sxsw.com
This panel seeks to change the conversation from “What can technology conferences do about diversity?” to “What can attendees do about diversity at technology conferences?” The panel is composed of speakers who have each presented at multiple technology conferences on topics that did not focus on race or diversity but instead spoke on topics of sci-fi, electronic ownership of email and digital wills, the influence of mobile development via comic books, social media for youth and business automation lessons from Amazon. While the diversity of some major tech conferences has steadily improved over the years, geek culture - which remains overwhelmingly white and male - is still the norm. This can be daunting for people who, despite being experts in technology and new media, don’t see themselves reflected in the marketing materials or content. For example, there are almost no people of color on sxsw.com home page. The panelists will share how individuals can contribute to making technology conferences more inclusive. How about: This panel will look at some of the cultural and economic factors that shape inclusion and exclusion and generate an action list for attendees.Source: panelpicker.sxsw.com

"I can’t do one thing. I am too good." Childish Gambino/Donald Glover. It used to be that the internet had made it easy for anyone to be an expert in just one area. Then people start dabbling into different interests and became dilettantes. Now people are becoming gurus in many areas and calling themselves polymaths. There is no need to spend 10,000 hours or 10 years doing ONE thing when you can do 10,000 things in ONE year. This talk will cover how has blogging, tweeting, tumbling facilitated pivoting polymath media monsters. Are they proving Malcolm Gladwell and "Tiger Moms" wrong?
