Just to keep you in the loop after our team call last night (Go Team!):
Stay tuned for the details as we get them, and we can’t wait to see you!
After lengthy team discussion and thorough analysis of the sign up rate, we have made the difficult decision to postpone PodCamp NH. It seems the Father’s Day weekend is a tough one for folks in the region, which we completely understand!
Please know that we will have a new date for you by next Tuesday, and that this event will still absolutely rock your socks off!
Please also know that this will affect the cost, and we will determine refund options for everyone next week as well – those who wish to attend on the new date who have paid will be accommodated, and those who can’t attend will as well.
Please stay tuned! The Eventbrite page has been temporarily disabled while we sort out the logistics of the change, and will be active again at the same address once we work out the kinks next week.
(And yes, this is still an active event seeking both session leaders and sponsors, it is simply going to be on a weekend that works better for everyone so that more people can attend and learn and make connections.)
PodCamp NH is designed to foster learning, teaching and to strengthen the bonds of the NH community. We’re taking over the dorms at New Hampton School this year. Not just because it’s cool (it is) but because we know that being around creative, smart, savvy, fun people for longer than just 8 hours at a time is going to foster bonds that last far beyond the weekend. We won’t be a bit surprised to see new startups, new film or music projects, new teams, new collaborations and new friendships forming in this PodCamp NH 2010 incubator.
Are you ready? At the end of PodCamp NH we’ll be a better NH, and a better us.
At our disposal:
A theater, smart classrooms with projectors, dorms, full cafeteria with amazing restaurant quality food, music, a master classroom fully integrated with audio and video, a computer lab, a library, a lounge, parking, tennis courts, soccer fields, and so much more.
Who should come:
If you miss college, if you wanted to go to college and couldn’t, if you love to learn or teach, if you have a film or music project you’ve been waiting to do, if you want to make an app, if you want to be a better educator, marketer, government rep or more – this is the weekend to make it happen.
Since we lost the site as explained here and are having to rebuild it, I thought you’d enjoy having the live, collaborative Google Wave notes many attendees took last summer here for reference. About half of the attendees had Google Wave invites at the time, and many of those who had the Wave participated. We’ll start a new Wave of notes for the 2010 PodCamp NH. Note: You need to be logged in to your Google account to see the Wave. Enjoy:

I have been consumed with client work, speaking, writing the new book, my Social Media Breakfast NH project, and my new project: PodCamp NH. That has meant little time for blogging. I’m happy to be able to write the post announcing that after months of planning, the first annual PodCamp NH is this weekend, November 7 and 9, 2009, at the New Hampton School in New Hampton, NH!
What is PodCamp NH?
PodCamp NH is an innovative gathering of new media enthusiasts, professionals, and anyone curious about what comes next in blogging, social media, podcasting, video on the net, and so much more. It’s called an UnConference because the attendees themselves present the sessions, workshops, and panel discussions. Get ready to connect at Podcamp NH!
Can I still attend?
Yes. We raised enough money through YOUR donations and the support of several sponsors to keep PodCamp NH free for 125 attendees! You can still sign up at this attendee registration page.
Can I still be a micro sponsor?
We would love it if you would help us keep raising money. We have covered the cost of the venue, AV equipment, breakfast and lunch but we are still trying to cover the cost of the shirts and other basics. At this point we are not accepting checks, so the Paypal button found on this page is your best best for contributing.
Can I still propose a session?
We have one session slot left. You can get with Leslie via Twitter if you’d like to claim it. You can see the sessions on this session page (and there are some GREAT ones, including a live taping of NOMX3, a NH Media Makers on Sunday, Battledecks, Creating a Twitter App, making a video from start to finished edit and promotion in 45 minutes, Beer, sessions for authors and musicians, ROI, time management, web development, and so much more.
Is there anywhere for me to stay over for both days?
Yes, there is information on accommodations and any discounts being offered on this page, and you can use hashtag #PCNHROOMIE on Twitter to see who else needs to room share.
Is there parking?
What else should I know?
Tom Beach of TRB Designs came to my session on False Metrics vs Real ROI at PodCamp 4 in Boston and made a video of it for the internet, in which he embedded my slides. I love the participation throughout, but especially at the end with the interaction between Chris, myself, the rest of the participants and Kat (we were encouraging her to stop selling herself short and get out there to get known for her expertise). I had intended to reserve the slides for the attendees, but since they are out there now, here you go, Tom’s recording of my session, broken into two parts for YouTube:
