If I enter a proposal to the PanelPicker, should I encourage my friends to vote for my idea?

Absolutely. Rallying your friends and networks to vote for your panel proposal demonstrates energy, motivation and organizational ability. All of these skills are important when it comes to organizing a successful session for SXSW. Although, please remember that high voting totals alone will NOT guarantee you a speaking slot. As noted above, public voting only accounts for 30% of the decision-making process on any given proposal.
