MICCA, for most of yesterday

Forgive me if this reads like I’m just a bit distracted – I’m writing this during the awards presentations that are preceding today’s keynote. It’s hard for me to do 3 things at once sometimes.

I didn’t blog from any sessions yesterday, as I spent the entire time showing people just how easy podcasting can be at the podcasting booth. As such, I missed all of yesterday’s sessions.

Don’t take this as a complaint, however. I would have loved to see all the cool things that were going on, but I also loved talking with the many cool people who stopped by to learn about a topic which I’m truly passionate about. I remembered several of them from last year, and was pleased to find that they remembered me, as well.

Granted, my extroverted nature makes me stand out in a crowd. Oh, well.

My goal was twofold – first, I wanted to show as many people I could that podcasting was not as scary or difficult that some people seem to think (including that darn “but don’t I need an iPod?” question). The other goal was to get as many people as possible to call in to the Gcast account I set up for MICCA and let us know what they thought of the conference or podcasting in general.

That 2nd part was … not as successful as I would have liked. At least I can promote it again during my presentation today.

More to follow.
