Podcamp Montreal Round-Up

Just a quick post to say that I wrote up a brief summary of Podcamp Montreal for Midnight Poutine, Montreal’s only gravy-on-french-fries-themed Arts & Culture blog.

I’ll be spending the rest of the week trying to sort out my notes and investigate a few of the ideas that were presented at Podcamp.

I’m a bit of an introverted extrovert, so my networking at the event was a little sub-par, but I did meet some interesting people, and benefited from being at Podcamp, so I wanted to thank the organizers for bringing in this year’s roster of experts.

Podcamp Montreal 2009 Coming Up This Weekend


We’re all tied to technology – even the dinosaurs we know

I’ll be attending my first Podcamp this coming weekend, and am excited about it, even if I am not really sure what I will be in for.

I’m not a regular podcaster, but as a multimedia journalist and (relatively) early adopter of web tools I feel like anything that bills itself as the New Media UnConference is worth looking into. I’ll head down with a bag full of gear and I guess we’ll see what comes of the whole experience.

I know that Montreal boasts of some very enterprising new media cats, and I guess I’m hoping to discuss some ideas with people and see if we have a similar sense of how technology will be evolving and what we’ll be doing with it in the coming weeks, months and years. One thing I’ve found in the new media landscape is that I often just have a gut-sense of things, and find colleagues often have a similar sense, even if there are few books, sites or experts espousing similar ideas.

Either way, I shall report back here on whatever I learn. If you are going to be at Podcamp Montreal too, leave a comment!
