Podcamp Pittsburgh 2 Day One

Okay, so I should have written this yesterday…I was really excited to be involved with Podcamp this year. I’d ended up missing it last year (I think I was doing an open house or something as a student ambassador). While I didn’t end up going to a session at each time slot, I did sit in on several. Heard about how some companies are using blogs. Learned a few useful hints on how to keep posting going. Got suggestions about merchandising, even just for a small blog, from SpreadShirt.
I overheard, but didn’t participate in, the discussion about bacn. Essentially, it’s email that isn’t quite spam. Stuff you want, but not necessarily this instant. A great idea. Spread it around! =)

Made all sorts of friends. Starting to feel a tiny bit more comfortable in social sorts of settings, but still have to work on the walk-up-and-introduce-myself thing. Enjoyed hanging out at AiP, at Bossa Nova and then at Affogato (even though I forgot to grab my camera for Affogatto so the last of my photos are from Bossa Nova). Took 123+ photos since I’m borrowing my dad’s camera for class this quarter. Here are a few random examples:

#flickr_badge_source_txt {padding:0; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif; color:#666666;} #flickr_badge_icon {display:block !important; margin:0 !important; border: 1px solid rgb(0, 0, 0) !important;} #flickr_icon_td {padding:0 5px 0 0 !important;} .flickr_badge_image {text-align:center !important;} .flickr_badge_image img {border: 1px solid black !important;} #flickr_www {display:block; padding:0 10px 0 10px !important; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif !important; color:#3993ff !important;} #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:hover, #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:link, #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:active, #flickr_badge_uber_wrapper a:visited {text-decoration:none !important; background:inherit !important;color:#3993ff;} #flickr_badge_wrapper {background-color:#ffffff;border: solid 1px #000000} #flickr_badge_source {padding:0 !important; font: 11px Arial, Helvetica, Sans serif !important; color:#666666 !important;}

Sorry if some of these photos came out a bit blurry, I was accidentally using ISO 100 for a while until I remembered that I had changed it for a previous shoot.

Well, if I’m still in town for the next time, I’m definitely coming again. Might even drive back just for the experience. Maybe I can get a bunch of people together and run something similar in Indy?

    Michael;

    Thanks so much for coming to PodCamp Pittsburgh 2! It was great having you there, snapping away like crazy. (Nice to see a guy who enjoys his work, and thanks for all the very cool photos!)

    I hope you met some cool people, and if you didn’t get a chance to introduce yourself around, now you can keep track of everyone through Twitter, etc. (As long as all the bacn doesn’t interfere with graduation…)
