This weekend I attended Podcasters Across Borders 2010 in Ottawa (that’s me in the top row on the right in the grey shirt) and was blown away by a sense of community that exceeded my expectations in every regard.
There will eventually be audio and video online of all the full sessions and JOLT talks that comprised the official schedule of events. I was immediately struck by the high level thinking about communications that was being shared. This ain’t no podcamp folks!
In fact, the event was clearly about content creation over simply podcasting alone. In that regard, PAB2010 became content. There was a synergy of shared culture and a friendly handshake and nod to everyone there indicating that if you made it that far, you were more than welcome.
I cannot say I’ve ever experienced anything like it.
I’ve already signed up for next year, and am encouraging friends to do the same. If you blog, podcast, are an online journalists or photographer, consider making the trek to Ottawa in 2011 and get a reduced rate by signing up here: pab2011.eventbrite.com or, if you’d like to see what this year was all about, check out the home site podcastersacrossborders.com OR go back through a few thousand tweets from participants of a great weekend here.
Try a new refreshing PAB today! You won’t be sorry!
