PodCamp Boston has officially started with the incredibly warm reception given by the Berkman Center for Law at Harvard University this past evening. What a tremendous event – our thanks go to the staff of the Center for its gracious reception and presentation, the Brief History of Podcasting. John Palfrey introduced the event, I did a quick thing, then Chris Lydon presented a brief history of podcasting, from the earliest days when Dave Winer was just testing out the technology itself. Colin Rhinesmith presented a terrific mashup of some early podcasting moments, and much fun was had. We can’t thank the Berkman Center enough for its hospitality! The very, very least we could do was add the Berkman Center to our family of sponsors, which is finalized at:

PodCamp Map Updated!

Because we need to work around the classes in session, some rooms will be variable between morning and afternoon sessions at PodCamp. Not to worry – we’ve got an updated, handy map with schedule so you know exactly where to go!
