Podcasters Unite!

Just came back from Podcasters Across Borders (my third). Great to see old friends again, of course, and to learn some new tricks of the trade. It inspired me to be more diligent about audio quality with thesniffer.

It was also interesting to see how the podcasting community has evolved over the past three years. There seems to be a comfort with different streams of podcasting. For some people, it’s pure hobby, mode of expression, and way of connecting with like-minded people. For others, it’s part of their business. For some, it’s a way of leveraging their digital profile. We all seem to co-exist happily enough. I guess for me, it’s a bit of all three.

Some personal highlights: Sylvain gave a great talk on Learning From The Beatles (and I don’t even really like The Beatles). Jay gave the first presentation on McLuhan I’ve ever seen that also talked about Harold Innis…Yay! And of course, the food was great!

Thanks to PAB for a great weekend!

    Hi Nora,
    I rounded up a tour of your personal adventures in the digital ocean (i.e. the sniffer & the crisper). Nice!

    It’s good to hear you talking beyond the “CBC etiquette” (which I love and sometimes try to emulate).
    I noted that the podcast is updated once every 5 days or so, which is outstanding in the podcasting world!

    Thanks for the time shared with me at the PAB, and good luck further on.

    Hey George,

    Thanks for checking out the blog and podcast. As far as keeping up the rate of posting, it really helps to have a co-host (unfortunately, Cathi couldn’t be there this time). Keeps you motivated!

    Nice to meet you!
