BootCamp PGH is this Saturday!

This Saturday is the long awaited BootCamp PGH! For those of you who missed the buzz across the wires and on the various sites connected to it, here is the info once again:

BootCamp PGH is a free one-day, immersive "entry level" version of PodCamp. It is designed to educate students, small businesses and corporate communications professionals on the power and possibilities of new media.

WHEN: Saturday, April 21, from 9 AM to 4 PM

WHERE: The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, 420 Boulevard of the Allies, 15219

WHO: New media experts, aspiring new media creators, communications and PR personnel, and you!


See? Free is good. Technology and social networking are good! The various sessions include everything from "Intro to Blogging" to "Integrating New Media into Existing Businesses." From "10 Trends Shaping the Face of Media" to "Performance Tips: Finding Your Voice." The variety is sure to provide something for everyone, at every level.

I will be attending quite a few of the sessions all day, and my esteemed colleague will be giving a few talks:

10:00 AM: Start Podcasting Right Now! by Chris Brogan and Alex Landefeld
12:00 PM: Intro to Social Networking Hosted by Jim Shireman of Sportsocracy and Alex Landefeld

So if you're in the area, and you're able (remember, it's free education--in a city full of colleges, you can't do much better than that!), stop by for at least a session or two. It's always good to put faces to email addresses and sign names!

See you there!
