PodCamp Ohio 2009 at The Ohio State University

Written by angelo on December 11, 2008 – 10:42 pm -

PodCamp Ohio 2 will be held at Mendenhall Labatory at The Ohio State University on Saturday, June 20, 2009. The location is sponsored by the Ohio State University’s Center for the Study and Teaching of Writing.

As of current we have 5 classrooms and one lecture hall available to us the entire day of the event. Each classroom seats approximately 40 with desks. The space is spread throughout the first floor which should make the PodCamp easy for attendees to navigate. The front entrance offers plenty of space for registration as well as a central place for lounging and networking.

Not all of the rooms have built-in projectors, so we will need to work out the logistics for those. We will have special wi-fi access the day of the event as well.

Online Meeting this Thursday

Written by Doctor Anonymous on December 9, 2008 – 5:49 pm -

Hello Ohio Podcampers! Can you believe that it’s only about six short months until Podcamp Ohio 2 on June 20, 2009 at THE Ohio State University? I don’t know about you, but I’m already getting excited for next year’s event. Just wanted to announce that there will be a Podcamp Ohio 2 Planning Meeting/Meetup this Thursday, December 11th, 2008 at 9pm Eastern Time on The Doctor Anonymous Show. (also check out the video post above)

Our buddy Angelo will be calling into the show to give us the most current information available for Podcamp Ohio 2. If you remember from last year, it was December when we really started to rev things up as far as the planning process. So, if you would like to help out in any way, would like more information about the event, or just want to catch up with your Podcamp Ohio buddies, I encourage you to tune in on Thursday.

I hope that you will be able to join us live, because that is where all the fun happens. There will be a live chat room, you can call into the show, and you can even see my shining face on the live webcam. (There will also be an archived podcast of the show). If you can’t be here live, that’ s ok, then feel free to leave comments below, or even in the Podcamp Ohio Google Group. See you for the meetup!

Ohio LinuxFest this weekend!

Written by angelo on October 7, 2008 – 10:18 am -

The 6th annual Ohio LinuxFest is coming this weekend, Friday, October 10th and Saturday, October 11th at the the Columbus Convention Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. LinuxFest is welcome to Free and Open Source Software professionals, enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to take part in the event.

Similar to PodCamps, Ohio LinuxFest is a grassroots conference for the Linux/Open Source Software/Free Software community. It is very much a community event and run by volunteers, some of which also volunteered at the first PodCamp Ohio.

Register to attend

In the spirit of supporting an open community, there are three ways you can register to attend. For those who are enthusiasts or are new to Linux, feel free to register with the FREE “Enthusiast Package”. If you would like to support the community, you can register either with the “Supporter” $65 or the “Professional” $350 package.

See you at Ohio LinuxFest!

Podcamp Ohio Meetup Wrapup

Written by Doctor Anonymous on August 15, 2008 – 8:31 am -

Thanks to everyone who joined the Podcamp Ohio Online Meetup last night! It was of course on The Doctor Anonymous Show. Brandice and Angelo called in from New Media Expo in Las Vegas. They talked a little about what New Media Expo is and what went on today out there.

With respect to Podcamp Ohio material, we talked about ideas for content for the 09 meeting. We also had a discussion about the pros and cons of a two day conference. Thanks also to Mitch and Daniel for calling in, talking about their websites, and answering questions.

Mitch also talked about their adventure of having the baby last week (great pics on his blog). In addition, in a Podcamp Ohio meeting exclusive, Angelo announced that he and his wife are expecting and the due date is just after the first of the year.

We even had a new podcaster call into the show. Check out his blog here. He wanted to ask about what to do to start. Thanks Mitch and Daniel for fielding those questions.

Finally, following the show, I hosted an “after show” party over on ustream. I even recorded it. Check out the recorded video show here. Thanks so much for all your support of the show! I really appreciate it. Have a great weekend, everybody!

Online Meetup this Thursday

Written by Doctor Anonymous on August 12, 2008 – 12:49 pm -

How much fun did you have at Podcamp Ohio? However, I do miss hanging out with everybody and would love the opportunity to say hello again. Well, I have the perfect place for you to do just that. (BTW, kudos to tw3nty3ight for starting an online meetup and shout out to those who attended New Media Cincinnati last weekend)

Podcamp Ohio is having an online meetup this Thursday, August 14, 2008 at 9pm Eastern Time on The Doctor Anonymous Show. Angelo will be calling in live from Las Vegas where he is attending New Media Expo. And, if you’re out there, make sure you check out Coverville 500 on August 15 at 7pm sponsored by Blubrry.

Also scheduled to call into the show is Brandice to give us a Vegas report. She’s going to be hanging out there with her Viddler peeps. If you haven’t already, check out the New Media Expo Videos including this announcement from Viddler.

In addition to all of this, we’ll continue to talk about issues concerning Podcamp Ohio 09. Angelo posted this discussion thread last week asking if blogging topics should be considered for the 09 event. In addition he threw out an idea of making this a 2 day event instead of a 1 day event. Finally, he made a suggestion of the weekend of June 20th, 2009 as a possible date.

I hope that you will be able to join us live Thursday night. There will be a live chat room, you can call into the show, and you can even see my shining face on the live webcam. If not, feel free to leave comments below, or even in the Podcamp Ohio Google group. (Oh yeah, in case you didn’t know, studionashvegas and Mrs. studionashvegas welcomed Lucas to the world last weekend. I encourage you to check out his blog post and say hello!)

Written by Doctor Anonymous on August 11, 2008 – 10:40 pm -

In case you missed it, Brandice just posted some of the video she shot while at Podcamp Ohio. This includes the video above which is a musical tour through the lunch line. Her other videos include from the registration desk, from the pre-podcamp dinner, and “the outtakes from the outtakes.” Check out the Podcamp Ohio group on Viddler.
