It’s not too late to sign up for PodCamp Nashville, an “unconference” dedicated to the creation & distribution of digital content (see also: Barcamp ‘09, Podcamp ‘09, Barcamp ‘08). It’s going down this Saturday at the Cadillac Ranch, and it’s free. Yes, 100% free, but bring a canned good to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank when you come!
At an unconference, instead of bringing in keynote speakers, the sessions are given solely by attendees – those living in Nashville’s digital world every day. There’s a little something for everyone, with sessions like WordPress SEO Strategies, Sex, Lies & Social Media, Social NETiquette, Web Typography and Best Practices for e-Newsletters, among many.
And then there’s the afterparty from 4-7pm, sponsored by Yazoo, featuring a series of Ignite sessions. We were pleasantly surprised when the Ignite sessions turned out to be one of the highlights of BarCamp ‘09 – Presenters race to give concise, 5-minute presentations on a prepared series of 20 15-second slides, and the results can be humorous, enlightening, educational, inspirational or just downright confusing.

We know that’s a lot to swallow in one sitting, so just take our word for it. Come down for a day of ideas, conversations and new friends. We’ll see you on Saturday!
