Interactive News Presented To Students via Google+ Hangout

25 09 2011

On September 24, 2011 While I was attending PodCamp Boston 6 at the Microsoft N.E.R.D. center in Boston I took part in a Google+ hangout with +Sarah Hill The Interactive Anchor/Reporter at KOMU-TV. Host of U_News @ 4, an interactive conversation about “U” and today’s news.

As Sarah spoke to auditorium of students and parents calling us her international inner circle.

All had heard of Google Plus but none had heard of Hangouts.

We demonstrated one and you should have seen the look on their faces. Don’t you just love seeing the first Hangout aha moment?

+Peter McDermott simulated a breaking news event on his Ipad2 walking around neighborhood, I was impressed with the video quality.

Thanks for helping me demonstrate Hangout’s use in TV News +Kim Beasley +Bruce Garber +Mike Downes +Laurent Jean Philippe Ravalec +Dolidh Young +Alejandro Fernandez-Lovo +Joseph Puglisi

PodCamp NH 2011 in 137 seconds

14 08 2011

What is PodCamp NH, it is an innovative gathering of new media enthusiasts, professionals, and anyone curious about what comes next in blogging, social media, podcasting, video on the net, and so much more. It’s called an UnConference because the attendees themselves present the sessions, workshops, and panel discussions. Get ready to connect at Podcamp NH!

This 137 second video see what happens at PodCamp NH 2011 thru my eyes. It is not everything that happened at PodCamp, in fact there was so much one could not see it all. There were 4 tracks consisting of 26 sessions. Of course one can only visit one session at a time so you have to stargaze your plan early. Great learning, connecting and fun was had by all and by the way lunch was fabulous!

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.

To learn more about PodCampCT 2010 follow them on Twitter and use the hash tag #pcct.
