I’ve been invited by my former employers at Jalopnik to join their SXSW panel on The Future of Driving, Monday, March 14th from 6-10PM. They’re calling it The Great Jalopnik Throwdown, and it includes a free party at the Hype Hotel. Register here for tickets. Details? Click here.
I need your help. Hot on the heels of my appearance on Futurist HeatherVescent’s Podcast “The Future of Cars and the Open Road”, she invited me to her panel @ the 2016 SXSW.
For that to happen, we need your vote.
The panel is called “The Automotive Singularity is Not Near.” In order for it to be approved, we need votes, which means signing in and voting, which should take all of 15 seconds. Today is the last day of voting, and of course, in a democratic system, every vote counts. I hope.
We’ll be joined by Envisioneering Founder, Technologist, Cannonball Run veteran & U.S. Express organizer Rick Doherty, and former Jalop and Auto tech genius Damon Lavrinc. For a taste of what Heather and I discussed last month, here’s the podcast…
Alex Roy is the founder of Team Polizei, a columnist for Jalopnik, a host on /DRIVE, author of The Driver, President of Europe By Car, Producer of The Great Chicken Wing Hunt & 32 Hours 7 Minutes, was Chairman of The Moth from 2002-2007, won The Ultimate Playboy on Sky One, has competed in LeMons & the Baja 1000, and holds a variety of driving records, most notably the 2006 NY-LA Transcontinental Driving Record, accomplished in 31 hours and 4 minutes.
