PodCamp AZ in November. You should come.
On November 14th and 15th, we'll once again be putting on PodCamp AZ. I'm really looking forward to the event. It's our third year and the folks helping plan the event are fantastic -- even more fantastic than the prior years. I think we're getting good at this stuff.
PodCamp AZ is free to attend. If you live further north than say, Phoenix, your weather sucks in November. You'll want to come here. It's usually still in the 80s, with no fear of that frozen water falling as if by magic from the sky.
PodCamp AZ is also a blast. I've heard many folks call it the new and social media event of the southwest. We drew over 700 people last year. If you were one, great. If not, come out this year and help us break 1000.
PodCamp AZ is a free unconference, but with a twist. Most notable: we actually schedule tracks, speakers and presentations. Anyone can present on any topic, but we encourage speakers to get us their info quickly so we can get them on the schedule. That helps those who want to attend but aren't sure of the value. But let me assure you -- we provide value to spare.
And yes boys, I'm sure iJustine will be back this year. We're getting commitments from other web-celebs from all over the country. It is the place to both see and be seen. Oh, and you can learn some stuff about new and social media, too.
If you're interested, register now. It's free. In the coming weeks we'll be putting up special rates for lodging at local hotels. Or find a buddy to crash with. Couch surfing is the hot new trend.
And if you want to help spread the word on this, today is the day. We're doing a big blog blast. Find the details here. See you in November!
