#PodcampHfx – What an unconference!!

By January 27, 2009Networking, Social Media

This past Sunday, I attended Halifax, Nova Scotia’s first PodCamp – an unconference. It was organized by a dedicated group of local social media enthusiasts, and the presentations and workshops were delivered by the participants themselves. There was standing room only at most presentations, and my head is still swollen with information-overload from the day-long event. The keynote speaker, Andrew Baron, was particularly enlightening, and is my new internet geek hero. He’s the founder of RocketBoom, and is dug deep within the trenches of social media culture.
