I couldn’t keep myself out of the fun, so I produced a promo for Podcamp Toronto.  You may have heard it tacked onto the end of Podcamp Toronto Podcast 16.   Feel free to play it on your own podcast, or add it to your blogsite.

As an organizer, I will not me entering my name into the draw for the wonderful gift packages from Griffin Technology.  That does not prevent you wonderful people from creating promos for Podcamp Toronto and maybe winning a wonderful gift bag from Griffin Technology.  I’ve heard a great idea for a promo from a prominent member of the Montreal podcasting elite, and I can’t wait to share the completed promo.

Podcamp Toronto Podcast #2: Interview with Tommy Vallier

Podcamp Toronto Podcast #2

I conducted this interview with Tommy Vallier as part of my post Podcamp Boston coverage on my site at http://ductapeguy.net. It seems to fit better here, so here it is. Tommy Vallier is a blogger, community developer at Talkshoe, and new media enthusiast. He regularly bends my brain with his insights into new media. He has some great ideas about the direction podcamps should be pursuing.

Connie Crosby and I, your humble bloggers, have been talking about producing a regular podcast leading up to Podcamp Toronto. I have some ideas about the form and content of the podcast, but I would love to have lots of community content and input right from the beginning, so…

What would you like to get from the Podcamp Toronto Podcast? What sort of content and information would be important to you?
