PodCamp Toronto at Ryerson University This Weekend

podcamptoronto.jpgPodCamp Toronto 2008, a two-day conference exploring the world of “new media community tools,” is coming up this weekend, February 23-24, 2008 at the Rogers Communication Centre at Ryerson University in Toronto.

PodCamp Toronto 2008 will bring together professionals and hobbyists from across North America. Over 330 participants are expected at the weekend gathering.

Like the several dozen PodCamps before it, PodCamp Toronto is a participant-led, open space “unconference.” The conference is a free event, with costs are offset by the event’s sponsors. Anyone interested in attending, facilitating a session, or pitching in to help can register at PodCampToronto.org. Session topics can be about any aspect of social media.

Some of the scheduled sessions include:

  • Social Media and Networking Starter Guide, by original PodCamp co-founder Chris Brogan, offers a fast tour of tools you can use, then goes deep into strategy and implementation for your business or organization.
  • New media. Old ethics: Are bloggers journalists? Are podcasters news anchors? And should the rules and ethics of journalism apply to them?
  • Introducing the Social Media Press Release, by Social Media Group Chief Strategist Collin Douma
  • Zero to Podcasting, presented by veteran podcasters including Mark Blevis & Bob Goyetche, is a two-day workshop that will let you start from nothing and learn the skills necessary to plan, prepare, produce, publish and promote your own podcasts.

We like the maple leaf motif on the Toronto PodCamp logo, contrasted with the little tornado motif of the PodCamp Midwest unconference of last weekend.
