I have been off on vacation for a couple of weeks, but I just got off the phone with Podcamp Hawaii lead organizer Roxanne Darling of Beach Walks with Rox and she caught me up on what has been happening.
The number of signups have already exceeded my expectations, and I am expecting the numbers to really climb when the TV ad Campaign starts. We received as part of a sponsorship with Oceanic Cable over 300, 30 second spots that are going to be running locally.
I have volunteered to do two sessions at the event, both of which have had full capacity attendance at previous podcamps. There will be a Senator speaking, that should be a fun session especially one week before the election.
If you have not checked out the Podcamp Hawaii website you need to do so now. Also their will be a Wordcamp happening at the same time and Matt Mullenweg will be speaking so the WordPress folks should be impressed with that.
If you have not made plans to attend, now is the time to book a flight and get a great business deduction by coming to this event here in beautiful Hawaii.
