200 Registrants Reached!

August 31, 2006

**Update: If Dave Winer says something about unconferences, I’m taking his advice, dammit.**

Hooray! 200 Registrants! Viva!  Keep the registrations coming. Let’s load this baby up. If we go to 300, cool! It’s a good problem to have.

There’s Only One First PodCamp

August 31, 2006

Don’t you want to say that you were there? The first event. Right from the start. There’s something wonderful about that feeling, of “discovering” something. Remember when you were the only person who knew about that band?

Last chance.

Special thanks to the Museum of Science, Boston for knowing now was the time, and thanks to everyone promoting the event. You’re superheroes in my book.

So, what’s your podcast about?

This offer just came in from

Attention All Campers: (Did any of you see the movie Meatballs? It’s a classic!)I’m very excited about coming to PodCamp! I’ve been inspired to share the gift of the pitch with a few of you who will be attending the event, so I’m going to offer my services to the first 5 people who contact me and reference “PodCamp.” I will help you craft a catchy fun pitch to help you promote your podcast and, if your pitch turns out truly excellent, I’ll even feature your pitch on our website at:

We’ll work on the following together via email and you’ll have a pitch ready to go for Podcamp.

1.) Identifying what makes your podcast unique
2.) Explain why you are passionate about your podcast
3.) Share what value people will get from listening to you podcast (i.e. is it funny, informative, a new take on an old subject)
4.) Let them know how to subscribe to you podcast

How do you answer the question, “So, what’s your podcast about?” If you want to attract more listeners and start creating better conversations you need to be able to explain why your podcast is worth taking the time and energy to listen to. Email me at: and please put “podcamp pitch” in the subject line. I’ll let you know if you are one of the first 5 and even if you are not, you can work on your pitch using our free “Pitch Wizard” and still create an excellent Pod Cast Pitch.
