I am delighted to be attending SXSW Interactive starting tomorrow, Friday March 7th here in Austin. I intend to fully submerge myself in the rocketing pace of conversation, presentations, panels, and swag that is SXSW Interactive!

Among the really interesting events I will be taking part are the following:

  • What Teens Want Online and On Their Phones
  • Sexual Ethics, Interactivity, and Virtual Worlds,
  • What Teens Want – In a Game
  • Are You Smarter Than A Wired Teen?
  • Some Serious Fun: Interactive Media for Children

I plan on returning (psychically, of course, since I won’t actually be leaving Austin for this one…) with lots of fabulous information and ideas I can bring to you here on my blog and in person through my classes and individual consulting.

So, in the meantime between now and Wednesday morning when I will re-emerge, I have a guest blogger to keep you busy and thinking. This particular guest blogger is different from my past guests, in both her personal experiences and perspectives. While I do not always see eye-to-eye with her about issues of sex, sexuality, or sex education, I do think it is important to listen and work to understand others’ perspectives on these issues. I hope you will find her stories engaging and her questions thought-provoking. I will be checking-in from time to time, and as always, please feel free to e-mail me with thoughts and questions.
