Well of course it does: it's JP's hometown!
While she's prepping for her Sunday presentation, hanging with her dad and visiting old friends in Boston, JP shared this update we thought would be fun to pass along ...
> good news. attendance is up. here's the latest post on the official PodCamp site ... "WARNING: Please spread the word. We have reached the maximum number of attendees for PodCamp Boston that the fire marshal will let us have; as a result, we will NOT be able to accommodate walk-in registrations."
and some other practical insights JP sent our way so far ...
> PodCamp's super-cool in that it's all about the authentic hallway conversations. The scheduled speakers are there, but the focus is on grass-roots extemporaneous learning about all kinds of social media (not just podcasts).
> lots of yummy-looking stuff on how to use the technology: less about features, more about Do's and Don'ts. YAY! A refreshing change.
> most discussions and presentations in the conference brochure / schedule still seem to be about the technology -- which is great! -- although more focus is on adoption at PodCamp than was at Enterprise 2.0, which to me is even more exciting
> looks like frank is the only presenter speaking specifically about organizational alignment / culture, which of course we're incredibly jazzed about as we continue to evolve "frank/inside" ... the essential crash-course on aligning a 1.0 culture and mindset with 2.0 visions of sugarplums and profits!
I'm following PodCast on Twitter. But beware. They seem to be pretty flush with traffic right now so you might encounter the most lovely, online visual apology you've ever seen:
Ahhh. Doesn't that make you want to hang with & learn more about all the new, emerging technology just a little bit longer? Yes. And I think that, in fact, is the point.
