  1. Who are You? In 50 words or less, please tell us who you are and why you are qualified to organize this session. Please also give us the best URL for us to link to on the Panel Picker. Tantek Çelik, microformats.org co-founder and former Technorati Chief Technologist. As a desk worker, Tantek confronted the result of years of decreased physical activity and semi-random eating habits. From October 2006 thru March 2007, simple physics (calorie math) and structured exercise produced effective results. http://tantek.com/
  2. Tentative Title for the Session. Please limit this title to seven words or less. Catchy titles are always good. Body optimization: why stop at health & fitness?
  3. 50-Word Description. What is the focus of this session? Please make your description as specific as possible within this 50-word framework. What can you do to make yourself not just healthy, but as healthy as possible, and not just fit, but as fit as possible? How can you realize your maximally optimal physical potential? Panelists will describe their experiences and techniques for body optimization, both long term, and immediately at SXSW.
  4. Three Takeaways. In 50 words or less, list three information-points that attendees will learn from your session. Attendees will learn how to optimize their bodies by straightforward techniques for: 1) eating choices, 2) exercise, and 3) rest. These techniques will be usable immediately, during SXSW, when traveling, and of course, in normal day to day life.
  5. Solo Presentation or Panel Format. Is this session a solo presentation (just you) or a panel (three or four speakers, plus a moderator)? Panel Format
  6. Other Speakers for the Session. If this proposal is intended to be a panel, who are other potential speakers you would want to include on the panel? Please try to be realistic with your answer -- although realize this is a blue-sky type question (and you do not need to have formally confirmed these names at this stage of the game). Tantek Çelik, Noelle Murata, Leah Culver, Joi Ito
  7. Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced. What level of audience expertise on the given topic is this session geared to? (Submissions that are geared to "all levels" will be marked as "Beginner" on the Panel Picker interface). Beginner
  8. Technical or Philosophical. Will this session focus on code and other technical matters? Or will it be geared more to philosophical ideas and concepts? philosophical ideas and concepts
  9. Category of the Session. From the list of categories below, please select the one that most closely matches the focus of the session you have proposed. If none match your idea, please categorize as "miscellaneous." Miscellaneous
