Montreal, capital city of podcasting

September 9, 2010 by iWeb Technologies in: Web Hosting Articles

Podcasting is a way to broadcast on the Internet audio or video clips that can be accessed using personal computers, as well as video and audio portable players.

Podcasting, which is a sort of a mix between radio/TV and blogs, is becoming a media of its own. It has known an incredible growth in recent years and has more and more fans, both producers and consumers (in the best sense of the term).

PodCamp Montreal will be held in Montreal on September 11 and 12 at the Coeur des Sciences of the Université du Quebec à Montréal (UQAM). This event is an anti-conference for social media and podcasting fans and professionals. If you want to learn more about it, or merely share you ideas, it will be the ideal opportunity, because of the very format of presentations. Indeed, an anti-conference is less stiff than traditional conferences and all specialists are invited on an equal footing. People will be very accessible and it will be easy to intervene and ask questions during these presentations. A more relaxed atmosphere does not mean that there will be no quality guests, quite the opposite, as shown in the announced schedule.
Just before PodCamp Montreal, on September 10th, will be held MediaCamp, which is a new opportunity for traditional media to take a look at their current challenges in an informal and spontaneous context.

This year iWeb is a proud sponsor of the event. We will be there to attend conferences and to take the pulse of the community. If you recognize our badge, please simply come to talk with us.
