Vote for the Q&A Panel at SXSW 2012!

By lisakav // August 29th, 2011

SXSW 2012 may seem far away, but March 2012 will be here before you know it! The PanelPicker voting for SXSW 2012 is now open and we’d love for you to vote for our panel spotlighting an Insiders’ Guide to the Q&A space. This panel features some of the most influential leaders in the Q&A space. Joining me in the discussion are some of the leading minds in the Q&A space: Ro Cho of Formspring, Lenny Rachitsky of Localmind, Shawn Schewegman of Cha Cha and Dan Peters of Yahoo! Answers.  

As we all know, there are plenty of places on the Web you can go to get an answer to a question, but it’s difficult to find an answer you can actually trust. We have been trained to turn everyday questions into search terms and in turn get low quality results due to content farms, keyword optimization, and a lack of understanding of what we’re really asking. With the recent rebirth of Q&A, there are now a multitude of models motivating users to ask questions and receive answers from real people as opposed to algorithms. However, getting that credible answer quickly still remains a challenge. In this panel, we will dive into the different flavors of Q&A sites available which models are working, highlight how to get the best answer you are looking for, and discuss why Q&A is different than search and how to unlock the potential of this exploding category.

Hope to see you there!
