POV has long had a presence at SXSW’s film festival. For SXSW 2010, we’ve submitted a panel idea to SXSW Interactive. Please vote for our panel, titled “First Person Storytelling: My So-Called Digital Life.” Moderator Amanda Hirsch, who writes the Outside the Frame column for this blog, will recruit an array of digital storytellers to explore such questions as: Is a Twitter feed a memoir in real time? What are the best examples of first-person storytelling across digital media? How are new technologies changing the ways in which we document our lives, and what does our approach to personal storytelling reveal about who we are?
