I want to tell you (or remind you yet again) of a noteworthy event, one that I’m proud to be involved with and that I hope you’ll enjoy.
A blockbuster summer sequel: PodCamp Pittsburgh 2
It was a hit last November, so we’ve brought it back. PodCamp Pittsburgh 2 happens this weekend, on Saturday, August 18 and Sunday, August 19 from 9am to 4pm, with a networking happy hour on Saturday evening. Plus a meet-n-greet tonight!
PodCamp Pittsburgh 2 is a FREE community conference for people who create, enjoy, or are interested in blogs, vlogs, audio podcasts, web video, content networks, and new media. The event offers basic and advanced sessions, panel discussions, lectures, and hands-on demonstrations.
Whether you’re a Web 2.0 novice, a plugged-in ‘net guru, or anyone between, there are sessions to fit your interests and experience. And it’s completely FREE.
Do you need to have an iPod or an iPhone or anything else ‘i’ or ‘pod’?
Nope. This is really all about the web in all its fun formats. It’s as non-geeky as you want it to be … or as radically geeky as you want.
Internet superstars, local pros, and more
New media experts will include:
- Chris Brogan of Video On the Net and co-founder of PodCamp
- Brian Conley, Vloggie Award-winning creator of "Alive in Baghdad" and "Alive in Mexico"
