I hope this post finds you well. There are a few of us on Twitter who have decided to start planning for PodCamp DC 2009 @digitalfangirl, @koa, @jaywalk1 and I are in the initial stages of planning PodcampDC 2009.
What is a PodCamp? According to Googleâ€™s define feature: â€œPodCamp is an international network of unconferences. According to Wikipedia an unconference is: â€œA conference where the content of the sessions is created and managed by the participants, generally day-by-day during the course of the event, rather than by one or more organizers in advance of the event. Enthusiasts get together to discuss and learn about grassroots technology in the area of podcasting, blogging, videography, Web 2.0 advances, and similar topics that are closely lit to the development of social media globally. There is some associated information on last years PodCamp DC here and a nice Quick PodCamp Starter Kit, put together by social media expert Chris Brogan, here.
If there is anyone familiar with venues that are very close to DC metro stops that can house a day long gathering and has very good free wi-fi access for all participants, access to audio-visual gear in all rooms, etc, please let me know. We are currently looking for sponsors as well.
If you’d like to volunteer, pls DM me on Twitter, leave me a message here, or at best, feel free to join the PodcampDC Community, set up by Naomi (digitalfangirl),here. In the meantime, a few pics (with descriptions) from last year’s PodCamp DC are in my Flickr gallery, here.
Thanks for reading….have a great day!
