Invasion of the Pod Tweeple #pcb4

I never had the whole “Kumbaya” camp experience as a kid. There were two summers I was signed up for the town rec. department’s “Summer Scene” day program. A few weeks in, they’d run out of gimp. I’d be out of the bracelet making biz, free to spend time with the devil’s spawn little angels from my class who showed their affection by bestowing upon me a super-great nickname. Man – I sure had a lot of <cough>”colds”</cough> that summer.

Thankfully, PodCamp came to the rescue last weekend and gave my inner child a big ole’ hug. (Better late than never, right?) Over the course of my career I‘ve been lucky enough to work in several great industries. That said, the new media space is by far the most welcoming and vibrant community I have experienced. Spending two days with other professionals engaged with adopting technology to enrich everyday life was transformational. In short: y’all rocked my world. No joke.

I’m still working through my notes, so I’ll write another post to share my highlights. In the meantime, I’d like to send shout outs to the folks who made my PCB4 experience so fab-u-lous. Guido Stein, Adam Zand, Steve Garfield, Tamsen McMahon, Mick Darling, Michael Lawson, Sam Sacks, Todd Van Hoosear, Gradon Tripp, Kurt Eng, Dave Werner, Jeff Cutler, Joselin Mane, David Wieneke, Rick Stein, Mike Volpe, Karen Rubin, Christopher Penn, Chris Brogan, CC Chapman, Rich Sands, Dave Cutler, Patrick Richardson, Bob Collins, Matt Searle, Steve Sherlock, Richard Reeve, Christine Major, Chris Abraham, Roberta Baldwin, Al Willis, Dan Ronke and the countless other session participants with whom I did not speak directly. And then there are the people I didn’t get the chance to meet.  Don’t even get me started on that list. @cspenn gave a great tip on Twitter about checking the Event Brite registration list for a memory jolt re: names and contact info. Thanks Chris!

  1. Kara,

    This is a great directory! Can I add my blog as well? – I’m still adding my notes about PCB4, as the thoughts and ideas are still swirling in my head.


  2. Kara,

    Thanks for the thought-provoking memories of my own “summer rec camp” days!

    PCB4 was not only a conference of spectacular content, but also a great “real people” connector – everyone was down-to-earth and friendly.

    Kumbaya definitely sums it up!


  3. Hi Kara, thanks for putting together such a great list of all things PCB4. It was great meeting you, and I look forward to meeting up at future events. 🙂

  5. I had that summer camp experience. Maybe that’s why, despite this being my first Podcamp experience, I got less out of it than others?

  7. Hello Kara,

    Many thanks for the pingback! I am still awed in Podcamp Boston4’s afterglow, and truly would love to participate the next sessions on the East coast on the topic of niche marketing. Hope to see you soon.

    Bunny hugs,

  9. Hi Kara,

    Just wanted to express my thanks for creating such a nice summarized list of PodCamp Boston 4! Funny, I wasn’t aware that it was my inner child that was being contacted throughout the weekend. I just knew it felt really good!
