SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, USA - June 21, 2008 - It's a wrap! PodCamp Seattle successfully wrapped its first event! Sessions covered a wide variety of topics and despite the heat, the competition from the Fremont Solstice Parade and one of the first nice weekends of 2008 (in late June...grrrrr), PodCamp Seattle drew about 80 participants and 14 speakers to the University of Washington Communications Department.


SPECIAL THANKS go to Kathy Gill, her students and the University of Washington for providing a venue, lots of volunteer help, all the audio/video/tech support, water, snacks and signage. Thanks to the Puget Sound chapter of the American Marketing Association for providing mass quantities of Starbucks Pike Place Roast, and to Edelman Digital for providing event supplies, and to the Seattle Ad Club, Seattle Podcasting Network and Seattle chapter of the Direct Marketing Association for promoting the event amongst their constituencies.


FOR COPIES OF THE PRESENTATIONS, keep an eye on this space - and also go to http://www.slideshare.net and search for podcampseattle.


THANKS to our speakers and participants - watch this URL for future events!


- Eric Weaver & Kathy Gill





PodCamp is an informal "unconference" event where people come together to connect, learn and share about online social tools, such as blogging, podcasting, videoblogging, Twitter, wikis, virtual worlds, etc. Our Seattle event is aimed at new media enthusiasts, marketers, PR and ad people, and technologists. Curious about Twitter? Wondering where consumers are leading marketers? Trying to figure out which microphone is best for podcasting? This event is for you! All skill levels are welcome to attend.


This event co-sponsored by Seattle Ad Club, Puget Sound AMA, the University of Washington, Edelman Digital and the Seattle Podcasting Network.


Like other podcamps, this is an informal, 5- or 6-hour "unconference" event where you show up, don a name badge, mingle with other new media enthusiasts, and check out the sessions/discussions that interest you. During sessions, you might see someone videoblogging the talk, someone else live-blogging about the videoblogger, a Flickr photographer snapping photos, and other folks discussing the whole experience on a Twitter backchannel. Whether you're a newbie who wants to learn more or a wired geek looking to connect with others, this event is for you!


Unlike other podcamps, we will not be pitching our own companies, products or technologies. PodCamp Seattle will focus on topical learning and in-person networking. Come out, meet others and learn!
