Agenda items:

  • Allocate Session times and rooms available.
  • Discuss the venue location (pictures here)
  • ComFest!
  • Podcasting Guide by Jason

Friday’s Visit to ITT – Great Venue Location

Written by angelo on May 4, 2008 – 12:24 am -

Mary, Jason, Gabe and I (Angelo) visited ITT this past Friday to check out the facilities. I must say, ITT has gone above and beyond to help us put on PodCamp Ohio this year. We cannot thank them enough for the opportunity!

Our first task was to assess the rooms available. One of the rooms available to us the entire day is perfect for our First Aid room for podcasters to setup their computers and practice podcasting. While taking pictures of the other rooms, we discovered 5 break out rooms that will be available to us as well. These are perfect rooms for those who may want to have a discussion or record interviews outside of the hallways. We also took some pictures of the lounge area, which will have vending machines and plenty of seating for socializing and networking.

We also inquired about Internet access for the event. Each projector has an ethernet port available for the presenter. In addition, there will be wireless access available as well. The wireless access will most likely be made available via a guest account. We will get more details for this when we’re closer to the event.

Help us Plan for Sessions

Written by mary on May 3, 2008 – 4:58 pm -

At the ITT site, we have multiple rooms of different sizes that will make it possible for us to assign rooms of appropriate size for each session.
So now we need your help. There is a survey on Survey Monkey that will help us get an idea of the size of the room we need for each session. It only takes a few minutes to complete and will make it possible for us to create a great PodCamp Event for you. Click Here to take survey

You can go back and change your answers later if you change you mind. There are questions regarding your level of experience with podcasting and blogging. The answers to these questions will give the people leading the sessions an idea of who their audience is. Thank You So Much for your time!
