5…4…3… Days To PodCamp Toronto
The wait is almost over! Just three days to go until PodCamp Toronto 2008 hits Toronto.
Almost 400 people are now registered for the event, which is shaping up to be an awesome weekend.
I’m presenting in two sessions, one on each day:
- On Saturday morning I’ll lead a session on Social Media in a Disaster. I’ll take participants on a whistle-stop tour of how the California government used online communications tools during the wildfires in late 2007. What did they do? What didn’t they do? How could they have communicated better? We’ll compare and contrast that with traditional media outlets and how they approached the disaster, and see what lessons we can learn.
- On Sunday morning I’ll participate in a panel discussion entitled Twitter 101 with Connie Crosby, Eden Spodek and Tommy Vallier. We’ll take a look at some fundamental aspects of Twitter, including the different ways each of us uses it, the value it has for us and any other questions the audience has about this tool. Adele McAlear will chair the panel, which promises to be an awesome session.
Personally I’m particularly looking forward to checking out a few sessions:
- Chris Brogan‘s session on social media and networking
- Mathew Ingram and Keith McArthur discussing the ethics within new forms of media
- Collin Douma taking a tour of the social media release
- As much as possible of the Zero to Podcasting program being put on by a plethora of podcasters including Bob Goyetche, Mark Blevis and Michelle Sullivan
I’m looking forward to meeting as many new and interesting people as possible over the weekend.
