Taking a pause

All good things must come to an end

For 6 years, beginning at Bunker Hill Community College, PodCamp Boston has provided a welcome wagon into the world of new media for thousands of people. While the overall PodCamp movement continues to grow, the idea of new media being important to folks in and around the Boston area has become the institution.

So, with gratitude and nostalgia, Chris, Chel, and I think it’s time for PodCamp Boston to take a well-earned break. Boston’s new media scene is one of the most robust in the world, and so the opportunities for folks new to new media to learn, share, and grow their skills are nearly endless.

What about PodCamp?

Stay tuned for a big announcement on a major East Coast event. There are also PodCamps happening around the world, which you can check out at PodCamp.org.

What about new media in Boston?

There are a huge number of organizations that are worthy successors and exemplify the spirit of PodCamp Boston - the idea of the welcome wagon for new media. Chief among them is Steve Garfield’s Boston Media Makers. BMM meets the first Sunday of every month, and it’s one of the best groups to align with if you want to see what’s new and interesting in new media.


What if [person/organization] wants to run PodCamp Boston?

While we appreciate the sentiment, we would ask that you not use that name or imply that your new media event be associated with or a successor to PodCamp Boston. Let the lady go rest and have a margarita or two wherever it is that events take a vacation.

And please join us for Podcamp East!
