This year, PodcastConUK will be held on Saturday 18 November 2006 at CCT Smithfield, London. If you’re in to podcasting – either as a listener or a producer, I urge you to go. I went last year, and it was fantastic – from meeting fellow podcasters, to hearing the varied talks, brainstorming, and discovering new podcasts. I went away with a brain buzzing with ideas, many of which have since come to fruition. Needless to say, I’ll be there this year too.
This year looks as if the format has changed from a series of talks, to a series of panels, allowing for a more interaction between participants. Each panel is to be lead by an established podcaster, and there will be a chance for workshops, equipment demonstrations, as well as live “podsafe” music.
Unlike many technology conferences, PodcastConUK is organised by a small team of volunteers, who are in it for the love of it rather than money. An event like this, for the podcasting community, by the podcasting community, is set to be the best yet.
