PodCamp SoCal

This weekend is the Portable Media Expo at the Ontario convention center. The who’s who of podcasting usually shows up for a giant weekend long part, or so I have heard.

This year, to kind of kick off the event, there was a PodCamp. They have these throughout the country and usually last a weekend or so. This one being the day before the event, it only lasted a day. And, in my opinion, could have been better, at least for me.

I was thinking it would be more of a group type thing. People gathered together talking about different things that related to creating, displaying or promoting content. Not so much. Instead, it was an endless line of speakers from 10:30 until 5:00 with only 1 30 minute break in between.

I’m sure that most people people might have gotten something out of it and I’m sorry to say that I wasn’t one of them. Oh well, it was worth the experience and I did get to meet a few people and help a few more with some Wordpress tips.

This was also a first for me. Not only did have the best tan out of everyone there, but I was also one of the few that didn’t have a ponytail! Yea, kinda like being a Linux UG meetup or something. It was very foreign to me and I was slightly uncomfortable.

Looking like I will be going back on Sunday for sure to catch the Ask A Ninja guys doing the keynote in the morning, then checking out the convention floor. I might go out Saturday too, just depends on how I’m feeling.

Oh yea, I did record a little something on the drive out. I should be able to get that posted tomorrow sometime.
