I love the geek Christmas of Podcamp Pittsburgh. It’s that event I get to be a part of every year where I get to bath in knowledge.
Podcamp Pittsburgh started in 2006 as an extension of the initial Podcamp Boston, bringing together creative people starting to make some great stuff with that ere of the Internet, whether that be Podcasting ( we used actual iPods back then!), blogging, or video. It introduced me to the Should I Drink That crew, iJustine before many knew who she was, and the Pittsburgh Filmmakers, our hosts for the event.
We didn’t know what a “Tweet” was yet.
These days we still discuss Podcasting. But beyond blogging we’re all trying to wrap our heads around Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, 360 video, and any number of other things we can do from our phones.
I’ve also seen everyone from budding bloggers with a voice to significant businesses being represented at Podcamp Pittsburgh over the year. Often just in the crowd learning from others. It’s still a powerful FREE tool for its attendees I offer everyone to come and check out in person, make friends, hand out your business card and make some friends. Those contacts and friends I’ve made from this event have led to some fun times and great business opportunities over the years.
Podcamp Pittsburgh is August 13 & 14 at Point Park University University Center.
