AUSTIN, Texas, March 16, 2011 - CNN iReport, CNN's participatory news community, and online video sharing
site Vimeo(R), an operating business of IAC (Nasdaq: IACI), have tapped into
their extensive online communities to produce creative, personalized
reporting of the 2011 South by Southwest (SXSW) Conferences and Festivals.

During the first four days of SXSW, March 11th - 14th, 2011,
hand-selected iReporters and Vimeo filmmakers, and CNN and Vimeo staff
covered the SXSW Conferences and Festivals from their own unique
perspectives, and shared their daily video footage with the iReport editorial
team. CNN condensed the collective footage into a compelling visual diary of
SXSW to share with global audiences.

"This project demonstrates what news can look like when it is opened up
to communities that include some of the most creative, visionary filmmakers
in the world, all collaborating to cover an event that is known globally for
celebrating tomorrow's ideas," said Lila King, participation director for

The collaborative visual diary, available at,
was revealed for the first time at a press event held at the CNN Grill on
Monday, March 14, at SXSW. The diary also will air on CNN International

the show's replays this weekend.

Vimeo will also present the filmmakers' unique visions of SXSW through
their own self-produced work on and Vimeo's official SXSW Groups
