Once again we are set to launch Podcamp Halifax. Being the second year I have been part of the organization team I was very excited when it instantly garnered lots of excitement and anticipation. Our e-tickets were gone in two weeks of being released and we also have opened up another fifty spots that are nearly all spoken for as well. Needless to say we are offering the right thing.
It is a very exciting gathering due in large part to it’s open agenda. The flavor of this year’s talks have a thread of a social media backlash. Not so much as a negativity to it but rather a acceptance and how users should use it and get going. But we shall only see what really happens when the day unfolds.
I am going to do a primer/micro-workshop on using video and if the space is still open I’m going to host a talk on branded entertainment and paid versus free content. I now have over year of information on our Surfdonkey show to talk about to help other start their own shows and leverage on new models of branded entertainment.
For those who do not know about Podcamps, they are an open gatherings on the topic of all things web related. But the agenda is set by the attendees (this could even be you) to present a topic and engage an audience to develop a conversation on that topic. There are set time-slots available that anyone, ANYONE, can do a talk on anything web related (blogging, video streaming, design, e-commerce, Facebooking, Twitter how-tos, etc.). You can even host a topic on some you just want to learn more about by facilitating a conversation. Either way it is meant to be for the newbie and the heavy user alike. I would like to see the proverbial pot stirred up a bit so antagonists please move to the front.
You should come too. What else is going on in the dead of January on a Sunday. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
