We see PodCamps as social media potluck. Everybody brings something to share, whether it’s ideas about how to improve social media or questions about things they don’t understand. Like social media, PodCampCT provides the infrastructure and possibility, but it takes all of us to make it into something great.
The reasons to attend PodCampCT are different for everyone. Some include: discussing new ways to use social media, talking about trends and where the online space is headed, hearing personal stories and sharing yours, learning more about social media tools, making new connections, achieving clarity on how social media can add value to your day and meeting people in person that you only know from an avatar.
PodCamps are typically referred to as the “unconference” because the focus and format doesn’t include the typical Powerpoint slides, keynote speakers or sales pitches. Attendees, sponsors and organizers create the discussions together. See more about the unconferencing of PodCampCT at How It Works.
The crew that is organizing and sponsoring PodCampCT 2010 comes from all walks of life. We are entrepreneurs, freelancers, artists, marketers, news media folk, nonprofit professionals and more. We all use social media in different ways and we each have different ideas about how to make it better. While it might appear as if an event like this is only designed for early adopters, techies and those who are already embedded in social media, PodCampCT is open to everyone.
Wherever you find yourself in social media – from seasoned guru to fresh face on the social media scene – you are needed to help make the first PodCamp CT a huge success! Mark your calendars for 10-16-10. The first PodCampCT will be held at the amazing Cooperative Arts & Humanities Interdistrict Magnet
