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 25 – Volunteer Shirts!

Written by angelo on June 4, 2008 – 8:56 am -

During meeting 25, we announced our latest event sponsors (Viddler and Blip.tv), plans for lunch at Damon’s next door to ITT and finalizing plans for the night before (Dinner with organizers and volunteers, visit ITT and setup any last minute tables then hang out at the bar at the Damon’s).

Staff T-shirtWe talked about volunteer and organizer T-shirts, we’re going to go with a blue shirt. Since last weeks meeting, Brian designed a blue shirt with the word ‘staff’ on the front and the PodCamp Ohio logo on the sleeve. We also decided that volunteers and organizers willing to buy their own t-shirt can. If you’re going to be volunteering and don’t have the means to buy your own T-shirt, please contact angelo (angelo [at] podcampohio.com) and we’ll work out getting you a Staff shirt ordered.

We also discussed event bags and possibly not getting them, but since the last meeting Angelo found a vendor who sells branded 9″x12″ at an affordable cost.

The remainder of the meeting we go on a tangent about the Smurfs, the Lost season finale that directly followed this meeting and The Office.
