PodCampCT 2010 – #pcct

17 10 2010

I had the opportunity to attend PodCamp Connecticut 2010 this past Saturday. Meet a lot of great and interesting people from Southern New England. If you never been to a PodCamp below diescibes what PodCamp and a un-conference is all about.

There is a relatively short video highlighting just a few parts of the event with some of the participant responses.

PodCamp Connecticut 2010 is a one-day event for social media enthusiasts (new and seasoned) to share experiences and learn from each other. PodCamps have been happening across the U.S. since 2006. Each event is unique. How will we make PodCamp CT worth everyone’s while? That depends on you.

We see PodCamps as social media potluck. Everybody brings something to share, whether it’s ideas about how to improve social media or questions about things they don’t understand. Like social media, PodCampCT provides the infrastructure and possibility, but it takes all of us to make it into something great.

The reasons to attend PodCampCT are different for everyone. Some include: discussing new ways to use social media, talking about trends and where the online space is headed, hearing personal stories and sharing yours, learning more about social media tools, making new connections, achieving clarity on how social media can add value to your day and meeting people in person that you only know from an avatar.

PodCamps are typically referred to as the “unconference” because the focus and format doesn’t include the typical Powerpoint slides, keynote speakers or sales pitches. Attendees, sponsors and organizers create the discussions together.

The crew that is organizing and sponsoring PodCampCT 2010 comes from all walks of life. We are entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists, marketers, news media folk, nonprofit professionals and more. We all use social media in different ways and we each have different ideas about how to make it better. While it might appear as if an event like this is only designed for early adopters, techies and those who are already embedded in social media, PodCampCT is open to everyone.

Venturing off again

17 12 2009

I’m venturing off again. Together with my friend Jim Jones we have created a new group called Southern New England Media Makers.

This group will meet the second Sunday of each month in Providence RI over breakfast.

The intent is to connect with others having the same interest of making media and social media in general. A place where we each will be given an opportunity to share what we are doing now, what tools we’re using and what technologies are available to help us make media. This is free to the public.

To learn more please visit us on the Southern New England Media Makers web site and follow us on Twitter.

We hope to see you there.
