Podcamp NYC is coming up April 7th at the New School in New York City. Foneshow's public debut was four months ago at Podcamp in San Francisco and the great response and feedback we got from the community there has shaped the product we now have. We've got the conference poster in the sidebar.
Podcamp is an unconference. For those unfamiliar with the format here's a definition from Wikipedia:
An unconference is a conference where the content of the sessions is driven and created by the participants, generally day-by-day during the course of the event, rather than by a single organizer, or small group of organizers, in advance. To date, the term is primarily in use in the geek community. Unconference processes like Open Space Technology, however, have been around for over 20 years in other contexts.
Open Space Technology is an energizing and emergent way to organize an agenda for a conference. Those coming to the event can post on a wiki ahead of time topics they want to present about or hope others will present about. The wiki can also be used to share who is coming because it is the attendees who have a passion to share that contribute to the event and will make it great.
We're really excited to have in intense few days meeting with the podcasting community. We plan on presenting again and are really excited to show off our progress in the last four months.
I believe they've reached the capacity of the conference facility so there's a waiting list if you want to attend.
