Presentations and other posts relating to podcasting

Tuesday, June 4, 2013: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Philly Net Tuesday on June 4 will be all about the world of social audio.  When and why are audio productions and podcasts a great way to express your cause?  Who are using these tools successfully today and how?  What sort of equipment do you need?  How do you actually produce a compelling audio production?  How do you get it out there to the world?

These and other questions will be explored and demonstrated by a panel of local practitioners, moderated by “Podcast Steve” Lubetkin, and including WHYY’s Peter Crimmins, Madeline Schaefer and Whitney Hoffman.   The evening will be full of practical and fun information about this robust, but often overlooked, area.

Who should attend?

  • Local nonprofits and activists who are interested in creating compelling and effective audio content for the first time, or to enhance their current efforts.
  • Techies who want to learn more about what’s happening in this field, and how it is being employed in the nonprofit and social change world.
  • Anybody who enjoys listening to compelling audio content, and wants to understand more about what goes into it, and how to get the most out of it.

Doors will open at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, June 4 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.  (Can’t make it downtown?  Watch the live internet stream at http://phillynetsquared.org/live, and submit your questions or comments via Twitter with the hashtag #phlnet2.)

RSVP’s are appreciated for planning purposes, though not required.  Lite fare will be available.  Hope you can join us.

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee for sponsorship.

A social web sampler

Philly NetSquared is proud to present our second annual Social Web Sampler.

We’ll have fifteen 20-minute discussions on the social web-related topics that you have volunteered to lead. (Five simultaneous stations x 3 time rounds.) They are, in no particular order:

  • Making Social Media Part of Your Regular Day
  • Using a wiki for group coordination
  • Using Video for Social Media
  • Live blogging/streaming your organization’s event
  • (Audio) podcasting
  • Tracking Your Organization’s Online Reputation
  • Using WordPress to Build a Web Site
  • Drupal 7: Shiny and new; is it for you?
  • Using QR Codes to effectively promote your nonprofit’s web site
  • Video Podcasting
  • Virtual Worlds
  • What is the purpose of using social media tools
  • Video, Public Access TV, You Tube as Town Hall Forum
  • How faith-based organizations can use social media to further ministry

Plus, we’ll have one slot in the final round that attendees will select on-site — maybe for something that wasn’t covered, or maybe for something you want to talk more about.

What will the discussions be like? That’s also up to you, but they’re likely to address:

  • How are nonprofits and activists using these tools?
  • How can they be used most effectively for your nonprofit or social cause?
  • What are the latest developments and trends?

In order to retain more of the knowledge generated in these groups, we’ll have a sheet at each station for people to add additional resources (websites, books, articles, etc.) that come up during the discussion. So if you know of resources that apply to discussions you might participate in, bring ‘em along. We’ll combine these with any resources provided by the presenters, and redistribute them to all attendees after the event.

If you haven’t already done so, RSVP’s via Meetup or Facebook are appreciated for planning (but not required).

Like last year’s Sampler, this will be a highly interactive gathering with lots of shared knowledge, networking and excitement. Refreshments will be available. (NOTE: Because of the small-group format, we will NOT be streaming or recording this event.)

Thanks to the American Friends Service Committee for sponsorship.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Podcasting. Videocasting. Streaming. Multimedia resources can be powerful tools for advancing your nonprofit or social change cause. On July 6, Philly Net Tuesday will have an interactive session focused on the technologies and opportunities for creating, editing and distributing audio and video content via the web.

Our presenters will be Steve Lubetkin (Podcast Steve) of Lubetkin Communications, and film maker and nonprofit communications strategist Wendy Univer. This interactive evening will cover tools and technologies for getting started, tips for effectively creating and editing video and audio content, and alternatives for distribution (e.g., when is Vimeo better than YouTube?). In addition to loads of useful, up-to-date information, we’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate these tools and skills, and compare and contrast different options. (You’re encouraged to bring your own audio or video recording equipment to try some new things yourself.)

Social Web Sampler
Featuring: 

It’s our anniversary!  Philly NetSquared started holding monthly Net Tuesday gatherings of people “interested in using the social web for social change” back in May, 2008.  And, for our second anniversary, we’re going to hold a “Social Web Sampler”.

 

The Sampler will be an opportunity to address how various social web tools can help YOUR nonprofit or social action cause.  Blogs.  Wikis.  Mapping.  Facebook.  Podcasts.  Photo sharing.  RSS.  Videoblogging.  Mobile applications.  Twitter.  Tagging.  LinkedIn.  Digg.  Meetup.  And so much MORE!

  •  How are nonprofits and activists using these tools?
  •   How can they be used most effectively for YOUR nonprofit or social cause?
  •   What are the latest developments and trends?

The evening will be divided into two major sections: Small Groups and Large Group.

 

First, we’ll have time-limited, small group discussions around a specific social web tool or topic and how it applies to social change or the nonprofit world.  Which particular social web tools will be discussed, and who will facilitate those discussions?  That’s up to you.  You’re all invited to lead a discussion.  Maybe you’re an expert in using one (or more) of these tools.  But you don’t have to be an expert.  Perhaps you are just interested in a tool or topic and want to enjoy a discussion focused on it.  YOUR interests and passion will shape the agenda.

 

We plan to have three 15-20 minute discussion periods, each with 4-5 simultaneous groups, resulting in a total of 12-15 small group discussions focused on a particular social web tool or topic.  Each small group discussion will have a computer available for real-time demonstrations (and wireless is available).  Small group topics people have already volunteered to lead include:

  • Twitter (Sara Cederberg & Warren Allen)
  • Podcasting (Steve Lubetkin)
  • Facebook (Judah Ferst)
  • Blogging (Ivan Boothe)
  • Video web conferencing (Tim Siftar)
  • Facebook (Sara Cederberg)
  • Monitoring social media impact (Cliff Stevens)
  • WordPress (Jim Wurster)
  • Flickr (Ralph Medley & Tony Heriza)
  • Content management systems (Nate Gasser)

If you’re interested in leading a group discussion, please sign up here: http://tinyurl.com/SocialWebSampler.  Please sign up before midnight on Sunday, May 2 to be sure to secure a slot.

 

Then, after our thinking has been stimulated by these small groups, we’ll regather into a large group, and you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the collective wisdom of the entire crowd by asking about applying these tools and strategies to your own situation.

 

This will be a highly interactive gathering with lots of shared knowledge and excitement.  Lite fare will be provided if you’re hungry.  Hope to see you there.  RSVP’s via Meetup or Facebook (links above) are appreciated.

 

 

 

We gratefully acknowledge the American Friends Service Committee, who sponsored our kick-off event two years ago, and has graciously offered to sponsor this anniversary event also.

Whether you’re a newbie or an old hand, we’ll use our August meeting to share thoughts about how particular Web 2.0 technologies have been used (and could be in the future). We’ll have an open, facilitated discussion about various elements of the Web 2.0 landscape. Those who are unfamiliar can ask questions; those who are experienced can share insights and tips; and we can all envision how these tools might be applied to our present circumstances and dreams.

  • Experienced podcasters and videobloggers can share tips, insights and challenges
  • Nonprofit activists can discuss how these technologies might help advance their cause
  • All of us can envision how these empowering tools might help us express our thoughts, feelings and dreams

Plans for the Net Tuesday Social Web Carnival are coming along nicely. Here’s how it will work…

People will visit each of 5 stations throughout the room. At each station, we will brainstorm ways in which that station’s tools have been or can be used for social change causes, as well as ideas for future Net Tuesday programs and other ways we can support, learn from and inspire one another in the Philly area. Then, we’ll come back together to share some of the insights and ideas that were generated.
