Internet Week Seeks Panel Ideas With Buzzword Bingo

In an effort that both pokes fun at and solicits panel ideas for Internet Week, a video featuring Alex Blagg from A Bajillion Hits and Best Week Ever encourages people to let their mind fill with meaningless buzzwords in hopes some combinations result in workable panel topics for the upcoming conference.

The video is part of this week's kickoff of Make The Stage, an online campaign that allows any individual, company or organization to submit and vote on panel ideas for the main stage at Internet Week New York 2011. Two entrants in six categories will be awarded a one hour slot on the stage, one chosen by the public and the other by a team of experts, which include Blagg, Suroosh Alvi (Vice), Jared Hecht (GroupMe), Soraya Darabi (Foodspotting), Ashley Granata (Fashism), David-Michel Davies (The Webby Awards), Scott Belsky (Behance) among others.

Some of the top panel titles Blagg's exercise comes up with are The Future of DIY Bieber, The Social Media Curation Innovation Revolution and Next Lev Viral Deals 3.0.

Hitler Angered Over Changes at SXSW

In a brilliant, Urgent Genius-created parody about how things have changed over the years at SXSW, we have Hitler, in a scene from some movie we've seen but can't quite place, lamenting the changes SXSW has seen over the years.

Everyone gets trashed in the spoof. Pete Cashmore, Mashable, Foursquare, the iPhone, the TRON Lounge, the Samsung Blogger Lounge, Chevrolet's Tweet House, the Pepsi Max Playground, the iPad2 pop up store, the Sobe Lizard Lounge.

If you were there, you can see the humor in all of this. If you weren't then just witness the changes you've seen in the conferences you have attended over the years. They get bigger, more corporate and brand presence proliferates. But SXSW has the seen the biggest changes in the shortest amount of time. Which is what makes this video so funny.
