On February 6, 2010, Ron Yeany, Alfio Raymond and I traveled way out West (Westfield MA, that is) to attend PodCamp WesternMass 2. Ron and Alfio were were attending because of my regular raving about how incredible the first PCWM had been, not quite a year earlier.
It occurs to me that you might not know what a PodCamp is. Well, PodCamps are a type of unconference. But What’s An UnConference? An unconference is a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered around a theme or purpose. PodCamp is NOT just about podcasting, but about all social media/networking, and its relevance and usefulness to community, business and otherwise. This PodCamp was all about blogging, content management systems like WordPress and Drupal, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, podcasting, videocasting/YouTube, and many other online community tools.
