As of 11:59 pm Central Time on Sunday, September 8, the public voting portion for speaking proposals in the 2014 SXSW PanelPicker has closed. Yes, you can still browse the PanelPicker interface to check out cool ideas -- but the voting and comment features are now disabled.
So what happens next? SXSW will spend the next three weeks analyzing voting results, as well as Advisory Board input and in-house staff feedback. On Monday, October 14, we announce the results of all this deliberation, as the bulk of content for the 2014 event will be released on that date.
Also, look for a special sports-related content announcement on Tuesday, October 2.
