PodCamp WesternMass is happening February 6, 2010 at Westfield State College!
is an ad-hoc gathering (or un-conference) born from the desire for
people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense
event with discussions and interaction from attendees. Anyone with
something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and
invited to join. Attendance will be a nominal charge of $20 ($5 for students), but all
are expected to participate and/or present. You can participate by
giving a presentation, demo, or joining into another cooperative event,
being on a panel/roundtable, or in other ways helping out on event day.
is NOT just about podcasting, but about all social media/networking,
and its relevance and usefulness to community, business and otherwise.
is all about blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, podcasting, videocasting/YouTube, and any other online community tools.
Western Mass entered the Social Media age with
the inaugural PodCamp WesternMass, as well as WesternMass TweetUps, in
early 2009. We have a thriving community here of some truly amazing
people. This is a chance for Western Mass bloggers, business people,
artists, and academics, to get together, make connections, and for
everyone to learn how social media can enhance their business, cause or
organization. This is also a chance to celebrate the cornucopia of
Western Mass. culture, a joyous blend of urban and rural; business,
artistic and academic; near enough to other large metro areas, but
small enough to hear yourself think.
We look forward to welcoming you to Western Mass PodCamp 2!
