The iPhone is considered to be one of the most successful product launches in history. Although I’ve heard some incredibly, almost unbelievably gushing praise of the iPhone, I opted not to buy one while documenting the mania of iLines at the Palo Alto and San Francisco stores.
There’s something to be said for the phenomenon that is amateur video on the Web. After earning Time’s Person of the Year, the “you” generation continues to drive the new web with each video and picture posted, tagged, and shared, every blog post and podcast, trackback, link, and comment, through every social bookmark, annotation, and search, all of the twitter casts, and micro and mobile text and IM updates we broadcast. Now, get ready for lifecasting.
Have plans this weekend? Now you do.
PodCamp West is a must-attend (oh and free) event this weekend that will cover all things related to podcasting and video blogging. Whether you’re a beginner, curious or an advanced practitioner, PodCamp West is designed to help everyone, at every level, share and learn.
It’s a two-day event, starting at 12 and running until 6.
Oh, but wait, I almost forgot, there are also two parties hosted by Vic Podcaster and the PodCamp West team.
The first Podcamp on the West coast will be held in San Francisco on November 18-19, 2006 at the historic Swedish American Hall. Inspired by PodCamp Boston, PodCampWest San Francisco will connect individuals, businesses and institutions interested in new media.
Podcamp San Francisco is an UnConference in the tradition of BarCamp. PodCampWest is free to attend for the community.
The event will attract influential Bloggers, Audio and Video Podcasting pioneers, content creators and distributors, mainstream media, enthusiasts, businesses, hobbyists, musicians, marketers, PR pros, and people who generally want to understand more about the new media space.
