Goodbye BlogWorld TV – Hello NMX TV!

Podcast Session

This is the post-apocalyptic episode where we talk about BlogWorld & New Media Expo – New York. This is also a goodbye to the BlogWorld name, and hello to the new name – New Media Expo. With that, I, your host Jeffrey Powers, say goodbye to BlogWorld TV, and hello to NMX TV – the newest place for happenings at New Media Expo.

BlogWorld – New York

In this episode, I go over the Virtual Ticket. If you missed any of the sessions, I’ll give you the info you need to get the ticket! BlogWorld’s Virtual Ticket includes the audio from sessions in New York, along with video of the slides. You can hear the discussions that were had in New York, and learn all about your passions in blogging, podcasting, Web TV, and more!

I also talk about the new hashtag. In talking about New York, we use #BWENY. HOWEVER, from this point forward, the hashtag for all our events and news is #NMX. Still, there is a lot of #BWENY discussion happening on Twitter. Including a great article: 6 Secrets to Launching a Successful Kickstarter.

The People at BlogWorld & New Media Expo

I grabbed random faces from the crowd while in New York. I asked them simply what their takeaways were. Diana Katche, Shari Simpson, and Mark Ensign give us some great information about what they learned at BlogWorld.

Goodbye, BlogWorld TV

With that, we say goodbye to BlogWorld TV. Next week, I unveil the new show: NMX TV!

BlogWorld Unveils New Name


Big news came at the end of Day Two at BlogWorld New York today. At the keynote session, BlogWorld founders Rick Calvert and Dave Cynkin announced the new name for the conference. Going forward, the event will no longer be called BlogWorld & New Media Expo. Instead, it will be New Media Expo (NMX).

The reason for the change? Simply put, the name better represents the entire industry and community of bloggers, podcasters, and Web TV producers and is inclusive of all online content creators. “When we started BlogWorld in 2006 the new media industry hadn’t really formed yet,” says Rick. “Changing the name from BlogWorld to New Media Expo was always the plan, but the timing wasn’t right until now. The industry has clearly defined itself and the name ‘BlogWorld’ no longer represents everything our industry event embodies, which is blogging, podcasting, and Web TV.”

From the beginning, BlogWorld’s goal was to bring all new media content creators together at one comprehensive industry event, Rick told attendees prior to Chris Brogan’s keynote speech began in New York. ““We are, and always will be, married to the mission of the show, not the name.”

For those of you in our community who are designers, the name change brings with it a really cool opportunity. We want you to be involved as we evolve. The logo you see in the photo above is just a placeholder. We want YOU to submit designs for what our new NMX logo will look like! We’ll narrow down the submissions and then have our community vote on which one they like best.

You get cash and prizes if you’re the winner.

Here’s the dealio:

The chosen winner of the logo competition will receive:

  • $5,000 cash money (Or U.S. savings bonds if you prefer. We strongly suggest you take the cash.)
  • A LIFETIME PASS to New Media Expo
  • An all-expenses paid trip to NMX Las Vegas in January 2013 (including airfare and hotel)
  • And, he or she will be recognized on stage at NMX as the creator of the new NMX logo.

Pretty nifty, eh?

We’ll be telling you more about how to get involved soon, so stay tuned.

So, welcome to the next chapter of the new media revolution. NMX is here and we will continue to serve our community of podcasters, bloggers, and Web TV producers now and long into the future. We’re glad you’re here with us for the journey.
