So Sunday at PodCamp started out pretty cool – and by cool I mean it was freezing and rainy and the guard in the venue would not let us in…
It was also cool for two other reasons… first there is this… Yup, I became mayor of the the PodCamp 7 Foursquare location. I probably drove the farthest (around 42 miles one way) and other than one of the event planners, I was the first one there… I know, I’m nuts…
There is also this video here… of Frank (@fuzzwad) playing his accordion while we wait to be let in.
Eventually, we got in and set up the registration table to begin welcoming attendees for day 2.
I spent all morning a the table passing out shirts & swag and getting to meet people I have been following on Twitter for a long time. I know I missed some great sessions, but I am think it was time well spent.
After lunch I attended the Professor Blogger session by Chris Lovett. He talked about using social media as an educator. It was neat to see how he uses his blog as a central location for his students.
The last session I attended was Michael Fedor’s Hashtags and Trending Topics. He had quite a few good points, but I have to admit it sent me into a flurry of bad hashtag usage with a fellow attendee.
The event wrapped up with a closing keynote by some of the event planners. There were handshakes and hugs all around. I am already looking forward to next year. I am not sure if I will be a volunteer or not, but I recommend it to anyone who is interested. For me, it was a way to make sure I did not chicken out of going.
Until next year…
