PodCamp Pittsburgh held at the Art Institute. Their website defines a PodCamp as follows:
Next I went to Selling Social Media to Your Boss. Here I got a bunch of good ideas on how I can persuade more people at work to allow us to do more social media type stuff.
Lunch was catered by Franktuary which was great as usual.
The final session I went to was Blogging 201: Finding Fodder - So, you've started a blog, Now what? This was an interesting session given by the writer of The Burgh Baby which gave me some good ideas that I'm going to start to implement in this blog.
Today I only stayed for the morning sessions because I wanted to get back to watch the Steelers game. The first one I went to was Political Blogging and Constructing a Solid Post. Although this was geared mostly towards political blogging, I still got some useful information from it. The session was given by one of the co-authors of 2 political junkies.
Finally I went to Security Awareness: Concerns past, present, and future. This talk is making me think about some of the information that I have online as well as some of the sites that I visit...
Lunch today was catered by Market District Giant Eagle. They put out a pretty good spread.
Overall, I enjoyed going to PodCamp and meeting other people like me who like to blog. Sometimes I feel like there's no one else out there since almost no one else I Know has a blog. This provided a nice sense of community. I am looking forward to attending next year and possibly even joining the committee that organizes the event.
