Oh, baby, baby, it’s a wired world. At least, that’s what I imagine Cat Stevens would have sung if he was born in a different age (or didn’t break up with the woman that song was really about). Because, let’s face it, we’re living in a digital world. With Facebook, Twitter, Plurk, Friendfeed, and millions of blogs of all sizes and opinions, there’s really no escaping it.

Alderney Gate Library, Dartmouth - January 25

Alderney Gate Library, Dartmouth - January 25

Yes, even in the little city of Halifax. That’s why it’s so exciting to see a new event unfold in the online underbelly that is social media. On Sunday January 25, Podcamp Halifax will be bringing together the brightest that our city has to offer and providing a space to share our knowledge.

And the event is not just for the pros. N00bs are welcome, too (FYI, if you don’t know what that word means it’s you and no it’s not a bad thing).

From the site:

“The inaugural Podcamp Halifax being held at Alderney Landing will feature blogs, wikis, podcasts and online video as its stars, bringing in experts and hobbyists alike to revel in social media’s glory.

A podcamp is meant to have an open, participatory, user-generated series of workshops. The people who attend are the presenters. In typical Unconference style, audience members are encouraged to make the most of the experience by following their interests and allowing the conversation to flow both in and outside of the presentations.”

Registration is still open but spaces are limited. The best part? It’s free.

[UPDATE: Registration is now closed but to get your name on a waiting list please e-mail ryan[period]deschamps[at-sign]gmail.]

Unfortunately, I’ll be missing out due to an ill-timed vacation. So, you’ll have to fill me in with links and remarks in the comments section below.
