Mike Genovese rocks Podcamp Ohio

Written by Doctor Anonymous on June 29, 2008 – 7:41 pm -

What a great time everyone had at Podcamp Ohio this weekend! One of the many highlights for me was the live music at lunchtime. Mike Genovese is someone I just met at Podcamp. I shot a ton of video this weekend, and I wanted to get this piece out as soon as I could, because I really like the sound of this guy’s music and I know that you will, too. (See video post above)

The majority of the video is at the end when he plays his first song. And, since most people were still in the lunch buffet line, the room didn’t look to crowded at first. But, by the end of his set, the room was packed.

As Mike was setting up, he was nice enough to do an impromptu interview. We talked about his upcoming album called “So The Story Goes” and he said that it will be released sometime in the next couple of months. So, definitely check out his website and his myspace page.

Talking about video, I saw a lot of people shooting video this weekend. As you put things together, I encourage you to share it at the Podcamp Ohio group on Viddler. There’s a feed over there to subscribe to, so that you will know exactly when I (and hopefully others) post videos to the site.

Places to Track Podcamp Ohio This Weekend

Written by brandice on June 27, 2008 – 11:37 pm -

We have a disadvantage to many Podcamps, due to the fact that Twitter‘s tracking is currently turned off. To communicate with everyone about Podcamp Ohio, use the “@PodcampOhio” reply, and then here are a couple of ways you can manage/track that feed:

FRIENDFEED – We have a room, feel free to share, comment, discuss! RSS feed for Summize results imported here, as well as RSS for blog, and Twitter accounts.

SUMMIZE #1 – Twitters with “@PodcampOhio” in the text

SUMMIZE #2 – Twitters with “Podcamp Ohio” in the text

And of course, follow “PodcampOhio” for official announcements and tidbits throughout the day, and if you want to see the checkins, following “PodOhioCheckin” to watch everyone’s arrival in the morning/afternoon.

We also discussed the New Media Expo, Ham Radios, Digital Television, Internet access during PodCamp Ohio and the need to put together and send event information to registered guests.

Speakers

If you are speaking at PodCamp, screen projectors are available, but we will need to know ahead of time if you need one so we have it in your room. Please email angelo (angelo [at] podcampohio.com) and let us know if you will need a projector.
