PodCamp NH team member Wayne Kurtzman has just posted an exceptionally helpful set of tips for first-time PodCamp attendees. And, in fact, it’s worth reading for all attendees, even those of us who have been to a slew of these things. One tip I feel always bears repeating (and remembering) is “Bring a power strip.” The easiest way to make friends at a PodCamp is to provide an extra outlet for the guy or gal sitting next to you when they need some place to plug in their laptop, gadget, or smart phone. And what is PodCamp about, if not making new friends and contacts?
Another thing Wayne’s done for us is set up a Flickr group for the event. So, if you do take photos—and we suggest you do bring a camera, because Portsmouth is a beautiful city—please post them there.
Excited yet? You should be! PodCamp NH 2010 is going to be fantastic, and we can’t wait to see you there. Haven’t registered yet? It’s never too late. Do it now!
If you have ever wondered what to wear to those social media events when dress code is not specified, how to dress for any occasion, how to look and feel successful, or just how to navigate the choppy waters of being the best you possible, then tonight’s podcast is for you.
Usually we discuss heavier issues relating to social media and technology on Topics on Fire. Issues like gender, race, cross generational work flow, education and more. But since 2008 was a rough year for many and we are all looking for a better 2009, I thought what better way to start us off than to take a bit of a departure from the usual themes and bring some of the best dressed men in (and formerly in) Boston to give you some advice on making some real, concrete changes and improvements for the coming year?
Each of the men joining me on our panel tonight is a shining sartorial example of how to look your best, as well as how to be the best you possible. They also appreciate the finer things, like wine, scotch and cigars, and want to share that knowledge with you. In keeping with the podcast’s overall theme, we’ll manage to get some tips relating to social media in there, I’m sure, but most of this episode will be about sharing their knowledge and helping you.
The panelists include Scott Monty of Ford Motor Co., Thomas Edwards of Project Infinity, Jamie Scheu of Hill Holliday and Dmitri Gunn, man of mystery. I will be moderating, and there will be a lively chat room going on as well.
