Podcamp Philly Report – Day 2

Podcamp Philly 2007 September 10th, 2007

I was able to make it back to Podcamp Philly for Day 2.  This time I was prepared and brought a camera (two in fact).  Here are a couple of shots……

Me & Bre Pettis of the Make Podcast

Me and Bre Pettis of the Make Magazine video podcast.  He had us do a serious shot and a casual shot.  I look like a lunatic in the serious shot, so I posted this one.

Mark Blevis' session on Developing Communities

Sitting in on Mark Blevis’ session on developing communities.  Mark produces several podcasts and also taught some great sessions on audio editing techniques.

General shot of the registration area.

Day two saw some drop off in attendance (I didn’t think I was even going to make it), but the numbers were still very good.

T. Marrone Artist and Podcaster

Todd Morrone from Used Wigs Radio dropped in and was offering free artwork generated on the spot.  He even made it interactive and had you begin the drawing with a few lines and he would flesh it out.  I drew a basic representation of the Apple logo and have a video of him developing it out to a beautiful Picasso-esque pair of faces. (I’m probably getting the art terms wrong, but it is definitely beautiful work).  I am going to try to post the video somehow as you just have to see it.

Chris Penn on Podcast Marketing

Chris Penn of the Financial Aid Podcast teaching how to market your podcast, demographics, etc.  Very informative.

 That was it for me.  If you want to see notes of the sessions, visit the Mike Tech Show or Caffination Podcast websites as Mike and Paul  were blogging their notes in real time.  Mike even UStreamed a couple sessions on Sunday and you can find them there.

Keep an eye out for a Podcamp coming to your area and plan to attend.  If you can help out with organizing or hosting a session, please do so.  I intend to get involved next year now that I know it exists. 

Podcamp Philly Report

Podcamp Philly 2007 September 8th, 2007

I attended day one of Podcamp Philly today and it was great. I was able to meet up with Mike Smith of the Mike Tech Show.

Me and Mike Smith

Fortunately, he remembered to bring a digital camera and was kind enough to snap a couple pix and send them to me. Mike introduced be to Paul from the Caffination podcast. Paul is also from Philadelphia and we dubbed ourselves the Three Philly Tech Guys.

The Philly Tech Guys

I wasn’t able to get a picture with him, but Bre Pettis from the Make Magazine Video Podcast was there as well  Maybe tomorrow if I can get back.

The content was great. I attended sessions on search engine optimization, audio editing, using your voice effectively, and handling corporate sponsors (should that ever come up). I might be able to make it back tomorrow and get a few pictures myself.
