Podcamp Nashville is a free day long conference about podcasting and new media being held on Vanderbilt’s campus in March. There’s a handful of speaker sessions and a couple of them might actually be relevent to journalism (although most of them aren’t). Here’s a couple that caught my eye:
- Podcasting and WordPress – How to harness the natural resources built into WordPress for syndicated podcasts.
- Drupal: Some Assembly May Be Required – Is Drupal a good solution for podcasts? Maybe. Drupal is a content management system and this is probably only for power nerds.
- Podcasting On The Go – This is exactly what it sounds like.
- The Power of Free – How to make money off giving stuff away for free.
I’m not familiar with any of the people leading these sessions, but it’s free and could be interesting. It’s going to happen at Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management from 9AM to 4PM on March 7. Go to their website to register. I have a suspicion that it may wind up weird and awkward like the blogging thing Belmont hosted in 2005, but who knows? It could be good.
