Experts weigh in on what's hot on the technical side of the Austin event.

IT'S NOT TV, IT'S SOCIAL TV PANEL

Panelists: Chloe Sladden, Fred Graver, Gavin Purcell, Lila King, Timothy Shey

Hill Country AB, Hyatt
March 12, 9:30am

Expert: Jason Hirschhorn, reDEF Group CEO, former MySpace co-president
Hirschhorn's Rationale: "Definitely recommend this one. Chloe is in charge of media partnerships for Twitter and they are catalyzing the re-invention of television. The faster real time social merges with television, the more valuable live television becomes. The effect television is having on the conversation on Twitter is massive. It's the new water-cooler. The influence of Twitter's conversation on what will be watched is equally massive."

BARRY DILLER SHARES INSIGHTS ON ALL THINGS MEDIA PANEL 

Ballroom D, Level Four, Austin Convention Center
March 14, 11 am

Expert: reDEF Group's Hirschhorn
Hirschhorn's Rationale: "It's Barry Diller, of course you go to see this one. But more importantly, in recent months Barry has been outspoken on major issues surrounding Net Neutrality. No one understands the perils of gatekeepers as well as he does and I hope he gets into at SXSW. Any Internet start-up should go and hear what he has to say, your survival can depend on it."
