Another Twitter During Conference Opinion

Author:

As I continue to hear about problems with Twitter and conferences I think I will make this something I will be asking all of our speakers about for 2010. I am thinking that Twitter will not be anywhere near our stages unless of course the speaker wants this to be a part of their presentation. Chris does a great job with his own conference in Seattle at Gnomedex.

Thanks for your opinion on this Chris. You can read Chris’ post and perhaps give him your thoughts as well. Should Twitter be banned at conferences on stage?

An Open Letter To All From Blogs With Balls and HHR Media

Author:

To the illustrious attendees of Blogs With Balls 2.0:

We at HHR Media felt that by Tuesday, your BwB 2.0 hangover and double-vision would be mostly gone, and those of you (of which there were a few) who missed plane flights as a result of your excessive “conventioneering” shall we say, are home safe and sound.   We owe you a lot of thanking.  We tried to do it as much as possible in person, but there were a few of you who we missed and we want to make sure you are all aware at how grateful we were to have you in Vegas.  Each of you being there mattered to everyone else who attended, and that’s what makes things like BwB great.  That and free drinks of course.  Those never hurt.

We only have two requests of you to ensure that BwB remains a great experience for future attendees and sponsors:

  • We ask that you publicly thank our sponsorsPlease include in your BwB coverage a line and link to say thanks for making it possible. If you would like to send them an email as well, that goes a long way, so let us know and we will furnish you the right contact (though some of you already have Captain Morgan’s address). They want to know they were seen and heard, which in return makes them likely to get more involved as well as make the next event possible.   We are not asking you to schill for them or their point of view, but it can’t be said enough that our sponsors – FoxSports.com, Yardbarker.com, ESPN.com, SB Nation, Sports Illustrated, Diageo Liquors and CarbonPoker all clearly demonstrated that they felt you all being in the same place was good for sports media, and that they want to be associated with you and your work.

(A special thanks as well to Dan Levy for all his work on the Shootout;  our videographers and photographers, Ben from Berylium Pictures and Rob from Kabimba Media;  and the guys at Wondershot for their work on the intro video;  and, of course, our panelists.  Each of these individuals contributed their time and talent to make the event a success, and deserve our thanks.  Further, please keep them in mind if you are ever in need of said talents).

  • We also ask you to tell US about your experience.  Either via blog post or email, but please do not hold back.  We want to make the next one better (without going to the moon, Josh), but it will only be as good as your feedback.  So tell us what worked, what didn’t, and most importantly WHY. While this was a wildly different set-up than the first BwB, that doesn’t mean we can’t keep the best parts of it.  Also please consider sending along a one or two sentence wrap-up that we could use for future Blogs With Balls promotion.  Something that you would not mind being publicly attributed to you and your site.  Maybe why BwB is important to you as a blogger, or what it is that you get from the experience, or why you have come to two in a row.  We will let you know when/how we plan to use it, but it is much easier getting it now while it is still fresh than asking you for it in the lead up to the next one.

For your convenience, you can use this form for feedback: http://blogswithballs.com/2/feedback/

Finally, lots of our videos and pictures will be trickling out this week, and in full force next week.  We will send those out to all of you and point you to where they are hosted so you can use and share as you like – so definitely send us your pictures.  Thanks to those of you who already have pics and vids up!

-Don, Kyle, and Chris.

Planning Your Podcast At Blog World Expo? We Just Made It Easy!

Author:

Our new identity this year is to also be the trade show for not just the blogging world, but after our merger with the podcasting and video world of the New Media Expo in 2008, we want to include the podcasters as well.  palegroove_studios We have been trying to find ways to allow our podcasters that will be attending our event not to miss a beat and to be allowed to record their own podcasts on the show floor “live”.  We have accomplished that this year with the folks at Podcast Tuneup who are bringing some university students and with Kris Smith of Palegroove Studios. We are setting up 4 separate podcasting stations where you as a podcaster can set up a time to record your own session live from BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.  You wont have to miss a beat and can do your own shows and get them up on your own site.

PCTU We are scheduling 30 minutes at a time and if you need more than 30 minutes just let us know so we can accommodate your schedule.  We will have staff and equipment ready for you to use beginning Friday morning when the show begins and ending on Saturday when the exhibit floor closes.  Set up your time to record live from the Exhibit Floor! You can sign up in the form provided, or you can contact Kris Smith at 646.657.8484, to schedule your time.  Kris is also available to handle you technical questions and any information you need to get your podcast recorded, uploaded and broadcast to your community!

If you want to tell all of your fans that you will be broadcasting live from BlogWorld & New Media Expo, now is your chance.  They can watch you conduct your show, participate as guests or how ever it makes sense for you!  It’s your show!

It Profits To Be A Non-Profit At BlogWorld!

Author:

****Update***  You Only Need A Weekend Pass To Attend The Non Profit Track***

Let’s face it, money is tight.  If you are a large corporation or a hobbyist, an employee or an employer, you know of what I speak.  This is not more prevelant that in the non-profit world.  They have budgets that would make most of us cringe, yet they seem to continue on carrying the torch for their causes.  They are passionate to keep up their good deeds and find ways to make their lack of money stretch to meet their needs.  The folks at eBay and PayPal, in conjunction with BlogWorld & New Media Expo are easing the pain of budgetary constraints a little.  paypal_logo

logoEbay_x45 They are allowing those in a non-profit organization to attend our event at half off the regular price.  That is right, 50% right off the top of the ticket price to go to Blog World!  In order to qualify you can apply by sending an email to blogworld@kompolt.com and applying for a special code that can be used when you register.  This allows you to get whatever package you choose at half price. Obviously you have to be a non-profit to qualify.

We understand what the non-profits have to go through to get to experience the same benefits as their “for profit” brethren, we and Ebay and Paypal want to help level the playing field a little.  Get over and apply for your special code to get 50% off your ticket.  I’ll make sure it is worth your time and effort!  Thank you eBay and Paypal for making this possible!
