The Most Terrible SXSW Panel Ever

SXSW offers a number of mind-numbing, buzzword-heavy panels about the future of the internet. The panel proposed by Chris Baker and myself strives to be the worst ever. Please vote for it.

Most SXSW panels strive to be intriguing and inspiring. This one strives to be terrible. Featuring a barrage of offensive PowerPoint, buzzwords and opinions lifted shamelessly from tech blogs, and live questions encouraged as often as possible, Mind Exploding Life Changing Mega Panel Symposium will teach you how to winnovate your incubator startup, pivot your cross-platform mobile-centric social network, gamify your band, and blast your Klout score to stratospheric heights with a mix of Kickstarter campaigns and paid YouTube views. It’ll be a dose of relief in the midst of the same old tired panels your friends, family, and non-bot followers stroke their egos with year after year.

You Are the Only Human Being Left On Earth Not In Graduate School: A Post-Apocalyptic Nightmare

Like The Omega Man, except everyone is in grad school instead of dead.

You step outside and find the streets deserted. You pull out your phone to see if some catastrophe has occurred. Disease? Neutron bomb? War? Are you left alone in an evacuation zone? You see Facebook is still abuzz with activity, but all of your friends are posting about how much they hate finals. “These people graduated college years ago…” you think. A scrap of paper blows down the street like a tumbleweed and lands on your leg. You look at it: an admissions letter from the NYU creative writing MFA program. Then it hits you. You are the last human left on earth. Everyone else has gone to graduate school.
