Xer’s at Pod Camp Nashville While I’m Doing Yahoo Live. What’s Wrong with This Picture?
I see the Xer’s in Nashville got together for another Bar Camp. This one was about Podcasting. I have a feeling none of them have been on Yahoo Live.
Wonder if they even know?
Here’s the entire chat room from the camp:
digitalblender: hey mitch
digitalblender: c ya tomorrow at PCN
beepboop: OMG, Dave is Talking, He’s Amazing. Have you heard of
Twitter. Dave actually made Twitter. He’s amazing
beepboop: so lonely, I’m the only one here
selfcamp: Twitter – “Search is temporarily disabled. Thanks! It’ll be
selfcamp: boo… hiss!
studionashvegas: Anyone online?
Captain Matthew Ebel: Oy, hangovers.
Whitney Hoffman: Hey Gang- How’s everything in Nashville?
Whitney Hoffman: any backchannel talk today?
1kenthomas: anyone here?
The blog is inactive too.
I guess they need me to take their hands and show them the way again.
Don’t need Bar Camps when Yahoo has done all the heavy lifting.
If you decide to check out Yahoo Live, look for GoingLikeSixty naturally.
Wait. People still use chat rooms? these are gen x’ers? WTF?
@The Absurdists: ayup. What really cracks me up is that these Xers think the represent the bleeding edge! Are you familiar with Bar Camps? If there is one near you, try to attend. I haven’t been to a “real” one, on the Bible Belt version. Barcamp.org
The WiFi was unfortunately down (I’ve voluteered to make sure it *works* at the next ‘Camp), which meant next-to-no activity (I was on via 3G). You are correct that the ‘Camp site could have better communications and contact ‘functionalities’ to keep people ‘in touch’ before, during and after– instead of sorting business cards and making private emails– but remember this is volunteer.
I doubt Yahoo Live is the solution to go for, but anyone is welcome to contribute to making these events better.
@Ken Thomas: at Bar Camp there wasn’t enough electricity! Amazing! I wasn’t suggesting Yahoo Live is the solution, it’s not meant for that, but did it even come up?
What does Twitter have to do with Podcasting?
Other than as a host for podcasts, YL didn’t get much discussion that I heard.
Twitter=new media= cool way to keep in touch/distribute info, like podCasting.
The GenX “new thing” does have an annoying edge, from people thinking that Twitter is ‘something new’ to the guy (who makes sites with WordPress) who kept declaring that WordPress was a good choice for ‘corporate sites.’
@Ken Thomas: I agree that WordPress can serve just fine for corporate sites. (on a server- not .com site)
Really? I’ve migrated a few people out of WordPress (and into Drupal) over the last year, & find WordPress mind-bogglingly limited and closeminded in how it does things… minimal features, little expansibility, no interoperability… want a good search feature, meaningful and customized article teasers based on categories, intra-user communications, or anything vaguely more than a static site with a basic blog inside? Not on WordPress :P…
@Ken Thomas: I was thinking corporate blog site, as opposed to multiple author blog. I don’t have any experience with anything other than WordPress. Obviously you are way past me on this stuff. I bow to your wisdom.
ive been camping in various spots like canada, northern california, nevada and minnesota but never in Tennesee, i bet the BBQ is much better and the fishing down in the bayou is really something to experience!
Still haven’t made it to a podcamp/barcamp yet. Looks like they’re working on the 2009 podcamp, looking forward to it.
