This week, I am super pumped about Podcamp Boston 2, the event that started it all! Event founders Christopher S Penn and Chris Brogan, along with an incredible team of organizers are bringing this revolutionary new media unconference to us all for the second time.
As a supporter and sponsor of the very first Podcamp last year, I am blown away by the sheer growth of the event. Last year if I recall correctly, there were about 300 attendees, and the event was held at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston. Now, just 12 months later, (and many other Podcamps around the world later), the original Podcamp is back, and this time is sporting the Boston Convention Center as its venue with over 1200 registered attendees to date! Incredible growth and momentum.
Here are the facts:
Who: All of YOU! As the folks who started this whole movement say, this is YOUR conference. YOU make it.
What: PodCamp Boston 2 is the new media community UnConference that helps connect people interested in blogging, podcasting, social networks, video on the net, and new media together for three days to learn, share, and grow their new media skills.
Where: The Boston Convention Center (and related venues for social activities)
When: Friday October 26th – Sunday Oct 28th
As a new media evangelist I can tell you that this is one incredible event to attend. If you are up and around the Boston area, or can hop a quick plane or train to get to the city, this event will not let you down. The best part is, its FREE for everyone!
Blue Sky Factory, is happy to be once again supporting Podcamp Boston as a Bronze sponsor. I will also be bringing up two copies of my new book “The Business Podcasting Book” to give away. In what, way, shape or form though, I have no idea… yet
The Podcamp Boston team also put together an incredible guide for the event which you can download here. Check it out.
I hope to see you on Friday / Sat (I will be heading back to Baltimore EARLY on Sunday so will miss that day). Touch base if you are going to be in Boston. Have a great Podcamp.
