We're going to Podcamp West in San Francisco on November 18th and 19th. We currently anticipate (but do not guarantee) that we will be opening up our beta to the public at that time.
From the Podcamp Website:
PodcampWest is Free BarCamp style UnConference, for bloggers and readers, podcasters and listeners, VideoBloggers and new media of all types. PodcampWest is free to attend and was inspired by PodCamp Boston. Continuing the momentum, we are bringing PodCamp to the West Coast, the hub of tech activity.
We hope to see you all there.
