Here’s what I remember from Podcamp
October 28, 2007
Aside from the multiple sessions, random hallway encounters with vendors, and delightful exchanges with the knife-throwing waitress at the SeaPort Hotel lounge, here are my memories of a frantic, frenetic, fascinating and fun 23 hours of Podcamp Boston 2.
These memories are in random order AND I was lazy and didn’t make the links live. If there’s someone you want to contact, just refer to the 1973 tutorial on cut and paste (be sure to add the http://www. because I’m just giving you name and .SUFFIX. *Sentences that end in links will not have periods in the interest of making cutting and pasting easy.
OH WAIT. Here’s the deal. IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO the Bowl of Cheese podcast, I’ll subscribe to your podcast. And feel free to mention bowlofcheese.com and jeffcutler.com and ideas2words.com and thingstoworryabout.com on your blog.

If there’s any doubt of my motives at Podcamp, let me clarify them here. I went to learn, connect and win stuff. I didn’t win anything except the acknowledgment from my peers that I’m fun to be around and that Bowl of Cheese is a good idea.
Some of the people with whom I’m trying to connect are content providers who might need my writing skillz. These people include: Dana McCurley at gillin.com and Kristin Amico at offbeatliving.com and Steve Albanese at tutorialfactory.com and even Craig Calder at mochila.com
Kevin Lane Skarritt piqued my attention with tales of a marketing and advertising agency where people could really be creative. That place is acorncreative.com and I’m looking forward to Kevin’s call.
Add to that some quick chats with Jeff Glasson – perkettpr.com – Anna Farmery – theengagingbrand.com – Chris Wilson – answers-for-freelancers.com – and Mitch Joel at twistimage.com
