Blogworld and New Media Expo Back in NY

Chris Pirillo interviewing at #BWENY Podcasting Pavilion.

Last year we welcomed Blogworld and New Media Expo to New York with its first conference set in the Big Apple. Where does the time go? It's back again and once again it is at the Jacob Javitts Center in Manhattan this time in June (the 5th-7th 2012). 

At last year's event, I met several listeners as well as fellow podcasters and new media producers there. If you are going this year, be sure to say hi if you spot me there. Should you attend? Here's a piece I wrote a few years ago, but it still applies today: 5 Reasons to go to Blogworld & New Media Expo

Instagram InstaMeet on March 24th in Long Beach, New York (Long Island)

Instagram

If you follow me on Twitter @LouisTrapani (or Facebook), you will probably already know that I use Instagram a good deal even though I only post a fraction of what I take to Twitter (I try not to flood my Twitter feed with all the photos I post to Instagram. Perhaps that will change at some point, in the meantime, if you are not using Instagram itself (currently only available for the iOS) and following me there (username: LouisTrapani), you can catch most of my postings via my Posterous site). If you are not familiar with Instagram, see my post from October 2010 when Instagram had just launched, I was INSTAntly addicted: Insta-Addiction to Instagram.

Instagram is having a Worldwide InstaMeet on March 24, 2011. What is the Worldwide InstaMeet about? To quote Instagram's blog about it, "The goal of the Worldwide InstaMeet is simply to get together with other Instagrammers in your area."

I was very excited to learn that BlogWorld and New Media Expo are doing their first east coast event this May when they announced it a few weeks ago. Previous Blogworld & New Media Expo events took place in Las Vegas, NV. For once I will now be able to attend a expo without having to fly there (I don't mind the actual flying, it is everything else that is part of the commercial airline experience I could do without).

When In Gallifrey

There's now a Guide to all of the Doctor Who: Podshock activities relating to Gallifrey One's Catch 22: Islands of Mystery on the DWP/GE website.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at convention or if you can make it to the convention, we have a meet up on Second Life the following week. 

If you are attending Gallifrey One don't forget some common sense items that you may need which we really didn't cover in our preview shows. Such as bring comfortable shoes, keep yourself hydrated, bring batteries and/or chargers if you need them for your digital devices, memory cards (or film if by chance you are still using film-based cameras), any lotions and medications that you need, comfortable clothes (if you are going in costume, that may not be possible), and of course a sense of humour and an appetite for a fun time.

See you there!

Punch It, Chewie! Star Wars in Concert Review

A long time ago (well, not really, it was just last month), in a galaxy far, far away (well… it about a 25 minute drive away) I saw Star Wars in Concert. I was excited about this concert tour since it first came to my attention in July (as I recall, it was right around the same time as San Diego Comic Con). It's been a long time since I have been excited about any concert tour.
