Room Specifications

 

Attention session presenters: we have received a list of available rooms and tech specs from Pittsburgh Filmmakers. They are listed below. PLEASE plan your session accordingly -- if you don't NEED the panel discussion room, for example, don't schedule yourself into it.

 

* ROOM 202 - Classroom, projection TV available (composite / S-Video), DVD and VHS playback

* ROOM 204 - Classroom, projection TV available (composite / S-Video), DVD and VHS playback

* ROOM 304 - Panel discussion (up to 5 panelists), VGA projector available, NO HANDICAP ACCESS

In addition, the entire Pittsburgh Filmmakers building has wi-fi (though some areas are spotty).

 

Session Ratings

Presenters, please indicate in your session listings any and all prerequisites. Suggested tags:

 

* (N)- for people new to web media or people who want to start podcasting/blogging/vlogging

* (I)- for people who have been podcasting/blogging/vlogging for a while and are looking to improve their existing shows

* (A)- for everyone, regardless of where they are in the new media spectrum

 

Please also indicate in the session title if it's narrowly targeted, for example, Video Blogging with Final Cut Pro.

 

How to Add a Session to the Schedule

 

Yes, this can be confusing, but it IS do-able -- and yes, by you.

 

 

* First, find the time slot you want to present in.

* Then look at the sessions NEAR the spot you're getting ready to fill.

* Then, click Edit Page

* Scroll down and you'll see the schedule. It's in table form, which means lots of vertical lines: | . Don't get too freaked.

* Find the session and the time slot.

* Find which room you want by counting lines over from the first room.

* Add your session to the schedule

* Preview to make sure it's in the right place; change if needed

* Save, and voila! You're a presenter!

The Law of Two Feet

 

Simply put: your experience at PodCamp is what you want it to be. At any time, if you're not learning what you want to learn, if you're not getting what you need, you have every right to depart the session you're in and move to a different one, or none at all.

Stuff from Day 1:

 

 

Who Can Speak at PodCampPittsburgh?

 

You can. Yes, you. Everyone can. Unlike a regular conference where speaking slots are allotted only to the highest bidder, Unconferences are by you, for you. If you don't see a session here that you want, create one and present it! Share what you know and your fellow participants will do the same.

 

What Constitutes a PodCamp Presentation?

 

30 minutes in a room of your peers. Help us all learn something new... The intelligence is in the room... discuss a topic that interests you... get everyone involved...
