Taking a stroll through all the great sports-related content submitted in the SXSW PanelPicker this summer, the importance of engagement becomes clear. Sports aren’t something to be observed passively. People want to be involved, whether that be structuring their fantasy teams, sharing their views with friends and other fans or analyzing the happenings on the field/pitch/court. To the Interactive community, being a sports fan isn’t simply a matter of cracking open a beer and sitting back on the couch.
Remember that community voting in the SXSW PanelPicker continues through the end of the day Friday, September 6. Take the time to make your voice heard on what type of sports content (and other programming) you want to see at SXSW Interactive in 2014. Also, remember that finding this sports-related content is quick and easy. Just type in "sports" in the search box at the top of the page of the PanelPicker voting interface. You can also obtain some pretty interesting results by typing in the word "athlete" in this PanelPicker search box.
