The online kick off party for PodCamp Ohio is tonight on the Dr. Anonymous show. Please feel free to join us in the chat or on the call. If you are a presenter for PodCamp, call in and give a plug for the session you’re a leading. Also call in or join the chat if you just want to connect before coming to PodCamp Ohio.

The Dr. Anonymous Show starts at 9:00 PM tonight on Blog Talk Radio. You can join tonight’s shoe here. By the way, it is Dr. Anonymous’ 3rd year blogging anniversary as well, so we have plenty to celebrate. Come by and congratulate him!

Don’t forget the Ignite Columbus event on Friday night as well. This is going to be a great weekend.

Chris Brogan speaking about PodCamp

Ever wonder how PodCamp got started? I had an opportunity to interview Chris Brogan recently when he was in town to speak at the Ohio Growth Summit. He, along with Christopher Penn started PodCamp. Chris is a delightful person to talk to. If you ever get the chance to meet him, go introduce yourself, you’ll be glad you did.

We are well over 250 people registered for PodCamp Ohio! This is awesome! A few things we need.

I am still accepting volunteers to assist for a few hours either the night before beginning at 5pm at the site to help set up and stuff swag bags. Feel free to show up early for Ignite Columbus to help out. We still need volunteers the day of PodCamp as well. If you have recording equipment, feel free to bring it and record or Ustream the sessions you are planning to attend for those who can’t be with us. We can also use volunteers to help set up and clean up for lunch and clean up after the event as well. People who come to PodCamp are pretty considerate and for the most part, clean up after themselves so it will just be a matter of putting things back where they belong. If you can help out with any of these tasks, feel free to email me (mary [at] podcampohio [dot] com) to let me know. I will also need to know your shirt size.

If you need directions, there is a previous post with the details for how to get to the site.These are the same directions for Ignite. If you are coming to Ignite, please register to attend on their site so they can plan for you. Iginite will be providing free food and drinks so registering will help them plan for you.

The official Twitter hashtag for PodCamp Ohio is #pco09 (PCO + zero nine). If you are twittering at PodCamp, please use this tag. If you don’t know what a twitter hashtag is, I will be explaining that and more in my Twitter for Beginners session. That’s all for now. See you at PodCamp!

On The Road To PodCamp Ohio


Things are moving right along here in PodCamp World. We have two returning sponsors for PodCamp Ohio.

Welcome back Dr. Anonymous from the Dr. Anomymous Podcast, and which provides services and tools to podcasters.

During our organizing meeting this past Wednesday evening, we discussed starting an official hash tag for this years podcamp. It’s official, our hash tag will be #pco09. I fyou are discussing PodCamp Ohio in Twitter, blogging, posting pictures or videos, please add this hash tag to make it easier for your fellow PodCamp Ohio enthusiasts to find you.

We had a few issues with the registration page and all the bugs should be worked out so feel free to register now if you haven’t done so. If you have any problems with our site, let us know either by sending us a message on Twitter or by emailing Angelo )(angelo[at]

We also discussed adding a tag line to our logo to help explain what PodCamp Ohio is about and decided to open it up to all you to come up with one. A tag line is a short simple state ment that would further explain what PodCamp Is or maybe a funny statement that will entice people to find out more. So we made it a contest. For the next two weeks, we will accept your submissions for a tag line for PodCamp Ohio. Right now the winner will receive bragging rights, but if anyone would care to throw in a prize, we’re not to proud to accept that. Just leave your tag line submission in the comments below. You could even let your friends know and ask them to post a comment to “vote” in favor of your tag line. Heck, why not make a video of your tag line suggestion and post it to Viddler or You Tube, add the #pdo09 hash tag and leave a link in the comments. You may as well have some fun with this right?

If you would like to help organize PodCamp Ohio and hang out with some pretty cool if not wildly strange people, join us on line for our organizing meetings every Wednesday night at 8:00pm.
