Meeting 28 – Another T-shirt Winner!

Written by angelo on June 24, 2008 – 9:22 am -

We have another T-shirt winner, Steve Bostedor (Twitter: @sbostedor). Steve was one of the first 200 registered guests that was randomly chosen from the first 200 registered guests.

During meeting 28, we discussed registration, separate twitter account to send twitter announcements when someone checks in, announced t-shirt winner, discussed the podcamp schedule from Thursday night through Sunday morning, staff t-shirts have been ordered, event guide, session schedule, Brandice’s wedding in Las Vegas, and we answered some questions that some organizers and speakers had that were on the call. 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.


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. You must provide your own computer that has a VGA port and 7-15 foot ethernet cable to connect to the Internet.

Meeting 24 – Survey Results!

Written by angelo on June 4, 2008 – 8:35 am -

During meeting 24 (Held on May 22), we discussed plans for meeting volunteers the day before PodCamp. This is in addition to the last meetup on Saturday, June 21. We also discussed how we will organize volunteers for the day of the event. We decided to plan on having lunch at Damon’s next door to ITT. We’ve confirmed with Damon’s, they are ok with our music guest playing on the Damon’s patio. We also decided to keep the intro session to 20 minutes that way the event is focused on the sessions. Dave and Busters will only have 100 coupons for us to distribute to PodCamp attendees. If that remains, we will plan on giving out the Dave and Busters coupons at the end of the event.

We also talked about the current results of the sessions survey. As of current, the survey has ‘Strategies for blogging, podcasting and social network marketing’, ‘What NOT To Do. Podcasting and other Social Media Anti-Tips’ and the ‘podcasting 101′ sessions have over 40% interest. We may plan on holding these sessions in the larger rooms. If you would like to help us better plan the sessions, please take a moment and fill out our Sessions Survey.

Last part of the meeting we discussed the past weekends meetup on May 17. Following the meetup we visited ITT and did some video recording of the facilities then hate lunch at the Damon’s next door.
