I love it when people innovate. I love it when South Africans break the mould, or make the mould, and do something fresh and funky.
I also really enjoy podcasts. I think that secretly I long to be on the radio (or TV) and just can’t manage to do that right now. So Podcasting is my outlet.
I used to do a podcast here on SA Rocks that I enjoyed and thought was fairly well received. Yet it took up too much time and when you have a permanent job, doing a podcast is tough.
What is Podcamp? Let the website explain:
What is a Podcamp?
“The characteristics of all successful communities: broadly shared, accessible set of opportunities, a shared sense of responsibility for the success of the common enterprise, and a genuine sense of belonging.” – Former President Bill Clinton, TED2007
A PodCamp is a usually free BarCamp-style community UnConference for new media enthusiasts and professionals including bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, social networkers, and anyone curious about new media. The first PodCamp was held September 8-10, 2006 in Boston, Massachusetts. PodCamps are now being held worldwide.
There you go, simple, it is an UnConference. Easy. Huh?
Basically you go and listen, blog podcast, learn, interact, innovate, speak and anything else you want to do in that day. It’s an UnConference, dammit!
I am pretty interested in going and have been told to drag the like of Vincent, Matt and Justin to the UnConference too. It is in Bloemfontain so I am seriously considering heading down for the day and getting my podfill.
For now, if you want more information visit the Podcamp’s rocking new site (very impressive design and interaction) or get on to Twitter and contact Jonin60seconds. To register visit the Podcamp Wiki.
