PodCamp WesternMass 6 - Apr 19

Where do I learn how to do what I do here for Franklin Matters? I managed to attend the first PodCamp in 2006 in Boston and have been continuing to learn something new at unconference event since then. At last count, I have helped with the registration desk (or more) for about 30 unconferences.

PodCamp WesternMass 6 - Saturday, April 19, 2014 
Where: The Kittredge Center, Holyoke Community College, Holyoke, MA 
When: Saturday, April 19, 2014 – 9:00 am to 4:00 pm


Tickets are $30 plus processing, or $10 with a valid student ID, and includes a full day of PCWM6, lunch, admission to our after party, and so much more! 
At PodCamp, everyone's a rock star. 
PodCamp is an un-conference about social media and online networking. It is an open and collaborative event with discussions and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join. Some sessions will be planned ahead of the event, but plenty of spaces will be open for the topics YOU want to discuss and learn. You can participate by giving a presentation, demo, or joining into another cooperative event, being on a panel/roundtable, or in other ways helping out on event day. 
PodCamp is NOT just about podcasting, but about all social media/networking, and its relevance and usefulness to community, business and otherwise. This PodCamp is all about blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, podcasting, videocasting/YouTube, and any other online community tools. 
Western Mass entered the Social Media age with the inaugural PodCamp WesternMass in early 2009. We have a thriving community here of some truly amazing people. This is a chance for Western Mass bloggers, business people, artists, and academics, to get together, make connections, and for everyone to learn how social media can enhance their business, cause or organization. This is also a chance to celebrate the cornucopia of Western Mass. culture, a joyous blend of urban and rural; business, artistic and academic; near enough to other large metro areas, but small enough to hear yourself think. 
There will also be a Post-PodCamp Party on Saturday after the event, at Sláinte.
