ia-logoA friend of mine and Reggie’s, Jason McElweenie, submitted Reggie’s name to host a panel for next years SXSW: Becoming An Inspiration – One Pixel At A Time http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/2339

The description is as follows:

Reggie Bibbs has been on a one man crusade to raise awareness for neurofibromatosis (NF) come listen to him tell his story and help you and your organization turn your clients and friends into raving fans for your company or group

Here’s where we need your help: This is a 3 step process. A panel is submitted and then placed in the PanelPicker where the public comments and votes on it. After the voting and commenting is done a group of SXSW insiders vote on which ones they like and the board at SXSW also votes on which one they like. If the public comments and votes a lot for this one we have a chance of swaying the other two parts of the in our favor so now we have to promote, promote, promote.

I hope this can further raise awareness for Reggie and NF, speaking to a crowd of early adopters can do nothing but help raise awareness. If this panel is selected I say we plan a sort of media blitz to make Reggie the unsung hero or face of the 2010 SXSW conference. First thing we need to do for Reggie is get him on Twitter I have registered his name http://www.twitter.com/reggiebibbs.

Can you send the PanelPicker link above to everyone you know and ask them to not only comment but also vote for the panel?

This would be an incredible experience for Reggie as well as a great boost to his mission to spread the word about neurofibromatosis.

If you could take a few minutes to help, it would mean the world to me and Reggie!

Thank you,

  1. I’m not going to lie, when I saw this blog “SXSW” looked like “sexiest”. I seriously thought I had a chance to vote Reggie sexiest man alive.


    I always support my friend Reggie Bibbs in any way I can! He is a friend I never personally met but was introduced to me through another friend Greg Gorman! Reggie is indeed a special person and special to me!
    If there is anything I can do for Reggie count me in!

  3. WOW!!!! What a busy day. I haven’t been here on the blog. First thank you all for good wishes on my birthday. I’m over joyed because of so many things. A good friend who I haven’t seen in a long time came at took me to lunch. When I came back to the office. All of my friends at VT2 Studios and Standandlou, gave me a surprise birthday party. I never expected any of this. Phone calls from members of our Just Ask Foundation called. Friends here on the blog wishing me well. This is great. Just for me birthday. Thanks. I’m backing what I want tonight. Carrot Cake.

  4. A. i make THE best carrot cake in the WORLD!!!!!!!!! You just tell me when, and where and I bring one for you as a belated present.
    B. it is ugly, but very tasty.
    C. I am jealous you let someone else take you out on your birthday.
    D. Glad you had a great one!!!!!!

  5. The voting is going well. Lots of comments, I hear we are crashing the site. My friend in California told me he is going to keep trying to get his vote in. Tell your friends how they can help if they vote for me to be a speaker.

  6. I would like to know who has the correct answer to this one. As far as voting. Can you vote everyday? Or is the ip address copies, and will only allow you to vote one time?

  7. Ah, well the ones I’ve seen via pictures are very pretty. They’ve done a good job. I asked because I was curious if the tumors had knocked any of your teeth out.

  8. Oh!

    Et êtes-vous vraiment couramment français? J’ai vu l’annonce NF qui vous-même, Megan, et M. Daryl a fait et l’un des petits faits sous la vôtre a déclaré: “fluent en français”.

  9. No, you are not being pest. I don’t know who to find anything about it. I went to the link but still don’t know how to see who sent a tree, or how to pick a spot for it. I didn’t want to look dumb, so I didn’t want to say too much. What do you think I should do? I will be back to check your reply. I’m going to get something to eat. Will be back in a few.

  10. Hmm maybe you already did it and don’t realize it. Is the link still on your facebook?
    Oh well! Its fine. I think they’ll still plant your tree, just in whatever location THEY want to instead.
    Want a blow pop? I have lots.
    Do you text message?

  11. What you need spell check on a phone for? I mispell everything on purpose so my messages are short and to the point.
    My phone is with alltel and you know Verizon brought them out so I’m scared I’m going to end up with verizon prices pretty soon. With alltel I get free texting and free nights and weekend all for approx. 30 dollars a month. Thats a good deal to me. Verizon keeps sending me letters saying that they won’t change my plan but I don’t trust them.

    So what did you end up eating?

  12. Verizon is a high price company for me. I check them out and I can’t afford that. I think my brother had alltel a long time ago. He has boost. I think that is what its called.Right now I have Cricket. It is not good at all,

    I had bar-b-que. Chicken and sausage sandwich.

  13. I want to do the Boost plan, it seems like a good deal. Free everything for only $50 a month can’t be beat.

    Woah woah woah, wait, time out.

    Now when you say bbq do you mean that the chicken was bbqed or that you ate pork bbq?

    Because if you’re going around eating a sandwich that consist of bbq, chicken, AND a sausage, you’re a carnivore, plain and simple. Time to give up the omnivore title. That is an AMAZING amount of meat on one sandwich.

    I just came back from seeing District 9. It was really good. Just got to get past the boring opening. The first 30 mins. is basically straight dialouge.

  14. If I tried to take food off your plate, would you kill me? Or call me something WAY outside my name? You seem like you get violent when food is involved.

  15. lol you sicko, I’m mad you put a smiley face at the end of that. As if to say, “Yes! I’ll call you a b*tch and break your thumbs!” ( :

    0_o I’m scared…
