If you want to learn about blogging and podcasting – PodCamp is for you. PodCamp is an unconference that was started a few years ago and has been popping up around the country – there is even a PodCamp Hawaii. This is an informal free conference where everyone is welcome to come and share info about how to use these new media tools. I have attended and presented at the past PodCamps and I have met some really great people – folks like Chris Brogan – he has a great blog on all things social media at ChrisBrogan.com and Mike Woycheck who is the founder of Wear Pittsburgh (aka the website that sells awesome parking chair t-shirts).
The conference kicks off on Friday with a reception at the relatively new offices of AlphaLab (I got a sneak peak tour today – they have a great space on the Southside) and this should be a fun reception. The un-conference runs Saturday and Sunday – feel free to stop by for just part of the weekend. The full schedule of workshops is available on the website.
