Who should attend Podcamp West, Venue and Dates.

Here is some info which would help you decide if you should attend PodCamp West in San Francisco.

Who Should Attend: PodcampWest is for people interested in new media. Bloggers, Podcasters, Video Bloggers (Vloggers) are the people, who the conference serves best. If you’re interested in doing something with new media, you’ll want to attend. Are you an individual or school or library wondering how to incorporate podcasting into projects and community events? Are you a corporation type wondering how you should get involved in new Media? Are you a venture group thinking about whether to invest in this new media space? Come to PodCampWest, learn,share and you will have the answers.

We have tentatively locked November 18-19 (weekend) as dates. I am working hard on securing the venue. Negotiating the venue is turning out to be a little more difficult than I originally thought, lot of other events are planned in San Francisco in November.

Venue has access to a few large areas to assemble for sessions and areas earmarked for decompressing and for demo tables. It’s local enough to everything that you can ride a train, take a bus, get a cab. It’s very accessible to folks either coming from far away or locally. Parking is typically paid parking (really expensive) or typically difficult to find in San Francisco.

I will have more for info for the community soon.

THE POWER OF UNCONFERENCE: 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. An UnConference brings people with many different skill set together with the spirit of sharing and learning. 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. We would like everyone to participate in some form or another and learn.
We urge you to consider signing up to give a 5 minute lightning talk about your experience with podcasts (viewing/listening), or a 30 minute session if you’ve got enough material to share with others. The sessions are held in the format of a conversation with the people in the room participating. Really shy or too new to the space? Join an informal round table talk, let others join you and ignite the conversations or participate in Podcasting demos and actual live podcasts as well!
