I am totally bummed that I can not make it out to Podcamp NYC this weekend.
It looks like it is a close second to the Podcast New Media Expo in Ontario this year as the must go to podcasting event. But with my moms birthday and Easter it was just not do-able for me. Family comes first. I am amazed at the growth of Podcamp. They have 1000 registered to attend. They even had to move venues. I have been watching the buzz build for months now. Mostly in Second Life, Twitter.com, reading blogs and by listening to podcasts like CC Chapmans, and his gang of merry podcaster friends talking about this event in New York. John Havens, Jason Van Orden and the rest of the Podcamp folks have been doing an excellent job putting this podcamp together.
A few months back I sent John Havens a few bucks for sponsorship and I was pleasantly surprised to find one of the tents in morphums in second life had our Grass Shack Events & Media logo in it. Pretty cool stuff. I asked if I could hang out in the tent and Frans who was working on the booth said of course!
