Wanted: Battledecks Slides in Powerpoint

In getting organized, ideas, partners on December 24, 2009 at 10:00 am

For this year’s podcamp, we would like to try a Battledecks competition.   To do this, we need Powerpoint slides, let’s say anywhere from 1 to 5 slides of different styles.   You should send the slides or questions to the Podcamp Halifax gmail account, which, unsurprisingly, would be Podcamp Halifax put together without spacing followed by an ‘at gmail.’

Great slides would be any of the following:

  • funny
  • obtuse
  • goofily analytical with graphs and matrices
  • pushing the boundary of good taste without ever crossing it
  • would pretty much fill any basic color background

In return, we’ll give you credit on the powerpoint and blast it on the internet in podcamp style.

Now, if you do not know what battledecks is – take a look at this video of a Battledecks competition from SXSW.   Mike Monteiro also released some sample Battledecks slides.

Podcamp Halifax 2010 – January 24th

In getting organized, podcamp news, presentations on November 23, 2009 at 4:21 pm

Shoot Again

I can’t say much more except that yes, for sure, we are going to do Podcamp Halifax in 2010.   Once we confirm the location, we will be updating the wiki where people will be invited to offer their presentation on whatever topic interests them.    Then, we’ll open up the Eventbrite site like we did last year.   Also, if you have Google Wave, you can find a Wave that discusses possible presentation topics.  Just do a search for ‘with:public podcamp’ and you’ll find us!   The twitter tag is podcamphfx, just like last year.

Last year we sold out all 200 available tickets and put 50 more in a waiting list.   That means you probably want to book yourself in early!   The event will still be free, and yes, we will be looking for sponsors.

Thanks Cleverclevergirl

Thanks Cleverclevergirl

So much for thinking we would have about 100 people!   On Thursday, January 15th, we sold out the last of 200 tickets to Podcamp Halifax!    We are absolutely overwhelmed by the response for this event and cannot wait to meet everyone.

We do have a waiting list available.   You can get on the waiting list by contacting either Craig or Ryan via Twitter  or sending an email to podcamphalifax [at] gmail.    We are going to do our best to make sure that everyone who really wants in gets to come.

Podcamp, accommodations AND a cruise??

What Does a Podcamp Session Do?

Thanks to orange_beard from flickr.

In the next few weeks, the Podcamp Halifax team is going to be asking people to host sessions. We are going to start with the people who have expressed interest already and then, in January, we are going to pose the question to the wider community. Read the rest of this entry »
