Panel: Website Demolition Derby – Live Website Reviews
Saturday, 4/30 @ 1:10pm in the Hollywood Ballroom 
This eternally awesome panel will offer live, no­-holds-­barred critiques of real websites. Our panelists will assess design, organization, content and functionality. How does the website fit with the artist's overall online strategy, and how successfully does it achieve the artist’s goals? Our experts have worked with hundreds of songwriters and musicians (including themselves), from major label superstars to secluded basement composers. They know all about website best practices, and they’re deeply allergic to bad design, music that auto­starts, Flash widgets and unreadable fonts. We’ve instructed each of our panelists to leave all diplomacy aside, so if you’re courageous enough to submit your website for their scrutiny, send a note to rebecca@section101.com
