Here in Arizona, we take the concept of a podcamp and change it to meet our needs. Hey, it’s hot and we have no water. We’re supposed to bend nature to our will.
What makes ours different? Well, as you’ll note from the main page, this isn’t all about podcasting. Now we love podcasting, don’t get us wrong. But podcasting is simply a means to an end. It’s a method of distributing media files. We think the creation of those media files is more interesting. And we think what people do with those files is far more interesting than that.
We also take significant poetic license with the “unconference” idea and do a good amount of pre-planning ahead of schedule. We just think that helps people decide if the event is right for them, rather than trusting the wisdom of the group. But we respect the unconference mindset and have dedicated room for the more anarchistic members to play in the undiluted waters of a true unconference.
So yeah… different. We’re OK with that. And from what our attendees tell us, they’re pretty happy too.
Be sure to register so we know you're coming and can have your badge ready.
