For those interested in PodCasting in its various forms, there are events (or, unevents) called PodCamps.Â These are “un-conferences” where people gather in a rather unstructured way, to share, learn, and perhaps just make friends, based on the “barcamp” concept.Â There are many scheduled around the US, and my son and I are considering attending two of them.Â There is the PodCamp Pittsburgh August 18th and 19th, and then PodCamp Philly Sept 7-9th.
Why my son?Â Well, if you haven’t already made it over there, he and I have our own little podcast, “The Father Son Chats.”Â It’s mostly about Penn State football, because he is amazing at breaking down the team, but we do occasionally talk about other things.Â Â Go visit there, and check out some of the graphic work he has been doing as well.
Let me know if any of you are attending and we can plan to get “un-together” and have an “un-chat” about all things podcasting!Â I am planning on bringing some of my equipment, so perhaps we can even have an interview or three!
Also, since so many people prefer to call rather than type, I have decided to try out this free voicemail service! Â If you want to try it out, just call my new voicemail number, and let me know what you like about the blog or the podcasts, or hey–leave a request for a topic you would like to have me rant about!
The number is:
Let me know what you think!
Thanks for mentioning PodCamp Philly! If you have any questions, please email me- I’ll be happy to help! It’s going to be a great time- from the Networking events on Friday and Saturday Night to the sessions all say Saturday and Sunday, it should be simply awesome!
And remember, PodCamp and all new media conferences are as much about meeting other people and making connections as about the sessions!
We’d love to have you come present- sign up on the speaker part of the wiki! we invite everyone!
