PodCamp began in Boston in 2006 for podcasters, bloggers and those interested in new media. The event, which is BarCamp-style – an open environment in which people share and learn through discussions, demos and participant interaction – has since grown into 21 different events in more than five countries, eleven states and virtually, in Second Life.
