I’ve had a lot on my plate lately so the bad news is, I haven’t been posting as many of my shopping stories as I’d like. The good news is, I’m back and have a whole bunch of stuff to share.
Two of those things are the conference I attended last month and the one I’m heading to at the end of this one.
I’m a third-year veteran of mesh – the social media conference where people connect, share and inspire. The keynote speakers and sessions were incredible. The people (general attendees and presenters) were equally inspiring. That's a picture of the guys who run the show (aka meshies) on the right.
At less than $500 including meals and parties, mesh is one of the best deals around. I also picked up some food for thought and some inspiration I’ll be sharing soon.
On June 20-22, I’ll be heading to Kingston for my first Podcasters Across Borders (aka PAB). I wanted to go last year but the timing didn’t work. It’s still not great for me but Connie’s been after me and co-organizer, Mark Blevis gave me royal heck over dinner during mesh when he read on twitter I’d be taking a pass. He and Bob Goyetche from the Canadian Podcast Buffet are running it again this year and no one knows podcasting better than those two.
So, I reconsidered and registered. I may not have my own podcast – at least not yet – but I’ve been interviewed on some and I’ve been working on audio projects at the office. (I was also a member of the PodCamp Toronto 2008 organizing team). Besides, there’s always lots of other stuff going on and for $125, a two-hour drive and sharing a hotel room with Connie, PAB should be a steal. Why don’t you join us? Register here.
