Being Buff, Episode #31 Mobile Social Media at Podcamp Toronto 2009

(Note: To play the audio: after you click the link above, click the POD button on the page that pops up, as shown below.)


Every podcamp I attend just makes me, well, love podcamps more and more and the 2009 edition of Podcamp Toronto was no exception.

I attended Podcamp T.O. (Twitter: #pcto09) 2009 this past weekend at Ryerson University in downtown Toronto and again had an amazing networking/learning experience – for free. Some of the highlights were meeting Sarah Prevette who had organized TwestivalTO that raised $10,000 to help build wells in developing countries. Sarah is also behind RedWire – a start up (and up start) social network for entrepreneurs, currently in beta release. I met people exploring faith and social media and journalism education and social media. From rabble’s Wayne MacPhail, I learned about the amazing  Flip video camera pictured below that makes putting video on the web as easy as pushing a big red button.


Bill Deys taught me about CastRoller, perhaps the YouTube of audio, and the Eye-Fi card that makes your digital camera wireless and lets you upload photos directly to the web. John Piercy taught me about the iPhone application, TwitterFon, that seamlessly lets you glide between Tweeting, browsing and Flickring…

And, in classic podcamp fashion, I organized a session on mobile social media because there wasn’t one. And I did an experiment that went off beautifully. I used my Zoom H2 hand held digital recorder as a talking stick and had folks pass it around to those wanting to speak. Most people respected the talking stick principle and the resulting audio quality is great. Enjoy the conversation and thanks to all the organizers below for another great podcamp!

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
