PodCampAZ is rapidly approaching and Douglas is speaking again this year!

podcampazOnWhite286x100For the 3rd year in a row, I will be speaking at PodCampAZ, (November 14 & 15, 2009) which I consider to be the premiere New Media event for the Southwest. Even better, it’s FREE!

I will presenting on 2 topics this year:

My Podcasting Workflow – Audio and Video – A Real World Example

Need some help getting your podcast started. Join veteran podcaster Douglas E. Welch as he takes you through his audio and video podcast process, including discussion on recording, editing, hosting, RSS and more. This is a “Real World Example” showing you the process Douglas has developed over years of podcasting and offering you lessons learned in the trenches.

Stay in control of your RSS feed

In order to maintain complete control over your podcast you need to guard access to your RSS feeds religiously. While services such as Feedburner and others can greatly enhance your podcasting RSS feeds, you need to take some basic steps to maintain control in case your RSS service disappears or tries to control your RSS feed. Learn how web site re-directs, WordPress press plugins and more can help you maintain control over your RSS feeds and keep your podcast in your hands.

As you can see, I am concentrating on some of the nuts and bolts aspects of getting your podcast going. After doing this for 5 years, I understand how fun, important, enlightening, podcasting can be and I want to share that power with everyone.

About PodCampAZ…

It’s that time of year again – PodCamp AZ is coming to the University of Advancing Technology November 14th and 15th! PodCampAZ is a FREE networking media unconference, dedicated to blogging, video blogging, podcasting, social networking, and all other relevant media. At the heart of the unconference is the opportunity to have a conversation at large with those innovators which have created a successful blend of relevant media and put it to work for them. Speakers will address emerging trends and best practices on everything from print and radio to mobile, interactive web, and in real life information exchange. During PodCamp sessions, attendees are free to drop in, listen and learn about what is relevant to their needs, and if they choose to, move on to other sessions. You can also become an interactive part of the experience by sharing your knowledge as a speaker or stimulating ideas and asking questions as an active attendee.

If you are an established or aspiring blogger, podcaster, video blogger, or social media advocote and want to meet hundreds of people with the same interests, head over to to get more information about this exciting event. And above all else, register to attend PodCamp AZ!

PodCampAZ is coming! – Nov 1 & 2 – Phoenix, AZ

As you may have noticed in the right-hand sidebar, I am going to be speaking at PodCampAZ, this November 1&2. You can find information on my sessions in the program guide.

Evo Terra and I will also be hosting the first meeting of New Media Interchange Phoenix.

What is PodCampAZ? Funny your should ask! The PodCampAZ site has this to say:

“PodCamp is a FREE BarCamp-style community UnConference for podcasters and listeners, bloggers and readers, and anyone interested in New Media. It was held for the first time from September 8-10 in Boston, Massachusetts and is now spreading across the world.

These 7 rules define what events can be called a PodCamp:

  • All content created must be released under a Creative Commons license:

  • All attendees must be treated equally. Everyone is a rockstar.
  • All attendees must be allowed to participate. (subject to limitations of physical space, of course)
  • All sessions and events must be free of charge to attend.
  • All sessions must obey the Law of 2 Feet – if you’re not getting what you want out of the session, you can and should walk out and do something else. It’s not like you have to get your money’s worth!
  • The event must be new-media focused – blogging, podcasting, video on the net.
  • The financials of a PodCamp must be fully disclosed in an open ledger, except for any donor/sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous.”

So, if you are in the area, join me (and a bunch of other folks) for PodCampAZ 2008. I look forward to seeing you there!

Douglas on Gangplank Studios Podcast – What is Gangplank and New Media Interchange?

Recording podcasts with Evo Terra Gangplank, Phoenix, Arizona

During my recent trip to Arizona, I stopped by the Wednesday evening “Hackmania” at Gangplank HQ. Learn more about Gangplank and a little about my group, New Media Interchange, too.

Hosted by Evo Terra, co-author of Podcasting for Dummies.

Gangplank #4 – Derek and Douglas

OK, how about a serious show? Douglas was visiting from California on an invite from Evo and was curious what this whole “gangplank” thing is all about. Evo ducked the question admirably, bring in Derek to clear things up. And now… you know. Or you will once you listen. Which you’re gonna do now, right?

We’re growing! – New Media Interchange Phoenix!

Evo Terra, co-writer of Podcasting for Dummies and Expert Podcasting Strategies for Dummies is taking the reins of our first NMI Chapter in Phoenix, Arizona.

He lays out his philosophy for this NMI meeting in his post, New Media Interchange Phoenix – or – Not another meetup!

“New Media Interchange Phoenix – or – Not another meetup!

For the purpose of this post, I’m breaking up you, the readers, into two categories. Now I abhor labels, so bear with me.

Group 1: Everyone who has a firm grasp on new and social media. You get not only the concepts, but you are actively engaged to the conversation. Sure, you want to learn more, but you’re looking for advanced learnings and cutting-edge applications.

Group 2: Those who look at people who fit neatly in Group 1 and wonder either “Now that’s really neato. How can I get involved?” or “Exactly what the hell are those people going on about all the time?”.

Group 2, there is an event happening in Phoenix (Tempe, actually) on November the 1st that you must attend. It’s geared toward you. It’s a safe place to ask what you may think is a silly question. It’s non-threatening, free of techno-babble that’ll make your head spin, and an opportunity to learn the basic 101-level aspects of social and new media.”

It is great to see this group in such capable hands and I will be on-hand for the first meeting at PodCampAZ, too. It will be great to get to know everyone face to face.

The Phoenix chapter now has it’s own pages on the New Media Interchange Wiki, too — Phoenix Chapter Info.
