Vitamin CH Chocolate: that substance without which we would get nothing done

What are you doing November 1 and 2, 2008?

I know what I am doing: PodCampAZ!

Meet me at PodCampAZ!

If you have been following my writing for very long, you know that I was a member of the organizing committee for last year's PodCampAZ. I volunteered, I helped, I presented, I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off. I even won a Frys Electronics gift card!

This year, I will again be there presenting, learning, and helping. I am hoping you will come too!

Why come?

This is going to be a great event. Over 50 speakers are already signed up. You can learn about them on the speaker's page for the site. We will be talking relevance - Are you relevant? Is your news relevant? Are the sources you get information from relevant? There will also be the usual sessions on starting out in the podcast, blogging, and social media worlds and keeping yourself going.

Last spring, Betsy Weber and I put together a quick list of why companies should sponsor PodCampAZ. Since we are still looking for sponsors as well as people to come join us, here is some of that list:

1) last year expected 100, 250 showed up
2) all comments back on content were positive
(only neg was the registration system and process and we have fixed it)
3) Only ONE no-show presenter last year
5) Location is UAT - max size is 1000 (but we don't plan to go that big)
6) Self funding
7) Lunch and t-shirts will be provided for a small cost - all other parts of the conference are free to attendees
8) Presenters last year included some of the top pod casts of the southwest
9) All day podcast AZ will be done again

Oh - another great reason to come? You should see the other great speakers we have coming... Chris Pirillo, Evo Terra, Clintus McGintus, Jane Chin, and so many more!

TechSmith is just one of this year's planned sponsors. You can learn more about who's sponsoring and how you can too by checking out

Want to know more? Follow podcampaz on Twitter or our hashtag #podcampaz for information. We follow over a 1000 people and have almost that many following us.

So... How do you find us? Check out the site: or just go ahead and register at!

I'll see you there!
