NewBCamp - find out about blogging, podcasting, Twitter, etc.

It's been almost one year since the inaugural NewBCamp took place and there's another one coming up in Providence.

What is NewBCamp?
It is a gathering of people interesting in learning and sharing about the new social media tools; blogs, podcasts, video blogs, Twitter, etc.

What is in it for me?
If you are interested in learning about these tools, then this is the place for you. The focus is on the new user (i.e. newbie or NewB). You won't feel lost, you will be amongst those who are learning from those who are willing to share.

What does it cost?
It is very reasonably priced at only $10. Less than a movie!

What are the details?

  1. Hey Steve - thanks so much for volunteering to help out and spread the word about NewBCamp. NewBCamp is YOUR unconference!

  2. Sara, you are most welcome!

    I have a series of reminders scheduled to spread the word here in Franklin. I think it would be a great opportunity for learning and sharing about all of the social media tools.

    You are correct in saying that the conference will be what we (the participants) want to make of it. Together, we can make it a great one!
