PodCamp SoCal Kicks Off Busy Podcasting Weekend in Southern California

podcampsocal.jpgPodcasters and new media types from throughout the United States and around the world are converging on Ontario, California, for this weekend’s Podcast and New Media Expo.

For those who arrive a little early, and aren’t otherwise tied up with Podcast Academy or preparations for presenting or exhibiting at the Expo, the local members of the LA Podcasters, and of the Orange County Podcasters are hosting an unconference SoCal PodCamp all day Thursday.

Jason Tucker, one of the organizers, was kind enough to answer our questions and share his expectations of the event:

[Because it’s an un-conference,] PodCamp is VERY organic in nature.

This is actually my first PodCamp that I will be attending. I’m a Southern California guy and I don’t travel much so I haven’t had a chance to check out any of the other PodCamps around the country. Because of this I noticed we haven’t had one in Southern California yet and thought we should start one. OC Podcasters asked our sister group LA Podcasters to join in and give us a hand [and host a PodCamp here].

This PodCamp will be unlike any of the others due to the way in which we were able to get the Expo to sponsor the event and provide us with the space and the equipment. We wanted this PodCamp to be a landing place for people coming in from out of town and for the local podcasters. Most of the out of towners I spoke with were coming on Thursday and were interested in meeting up.

PodCamp SoCal will run from 10 am – 5 pm, tomorrow, September 27, in Ballroom C of the Ontario Convention Center (the spot where the Podcast and New Media Expo will take place Friday through Sunday).
