SXSW Conference Reinstates Two Panels… [Summit on Harassment – Free Streaming]

SXSW Conference Reinstates Two Panels Following Gamergate Backlash by Seung Lee.

In politics this is called “flip-flop.”

SXSW flipped one way because of fear of violence and now SXSW has flopped the other way because of public anger at their flip.

From the SXSW flop statement:

It is clear that online harassment is a problem that requires more than two panel discussions to address.

To that end, we’ve added a day-long summit to examine this topic. Scheduled on Saturday, March 12, the Online Harassment Summit will take place at SXSW 2016, and we plan to live-stream the content free for the public throughout the day.

Hope and pray that Hugh Forrest doesn’t attempt to cross a piece of paisley between now and the Summit on Harassment.

The strain of changing his colors that rapidly could be harmful.
