What is Podcamp?

 

PodCamp is a FREE 2-day "Unconference" experience dedicated to the sharing of information around new / social media (audio and video podcasting, blogging, more). The first PodCamp was held in Boston on Sept 9-10, and was organized by Chris Brogan, Christopher S. Penn, Bryan Person, Steve Garfield, Adam Weiss, and Susan Kaup, with help from dozens of others, and participants abound.

 

 

  • The main premise: share information.
  • Next: share relationships and build community.
  • Third: grow the community out

 

 

 

What's an "unconference?"

 

An unConference means that the participants are also the experts. We're audio and video podcasters, enthusiasts, businesspeople, hobbyists, musicians, promoters, marketers, and people who generally want to understand more about the new media space. The power of an unconference is you get FREE ACCESS to ideas, thoughts, best practices, and the true "wisdom of crowds" simply by registering and attending.

 

This also means that we want to hear from YOU. This is not a "top-down" conference model where you get a glossy brochure and nod in agreement while listening to key notes and featured speakers. We encourage interactivity, Q&A's and sessions that are dialogues versus monologues. The sessions are respectful of course (interruptions are typically caused by fits of passion on subject matter versus vitriol), but be aware that participants value transparency, candor and value versus "pitchy" talks that serve as thinly veiled PR babble. In the blogosphere, podosphere, and so on, after you've been flamed a few times you understand the need to speak truthfully and respectfully to your audience. This doesn't mean you cater or kowtow, either-speak strongly and with authority but leave the "corporate speak" at home. You'll sell more anyway (ideas, stuff, services) if you prove you've got powerful ideas and can foster meaningful relationships.
