Podcasters Across Borders 2009 Early Registration

PAB 2009Registion for Podcasters Across Borders 2009 is off to an early start: PAB2009 early registration now open! It's being held June 19-21 in Kingston, Ontario.

PAB is an east coast podcaster's conference with an emphasis on community. It's organized by the personalities behind the Canadian Podcast Buffet, Bob Goyetche and Mark Blevis.

Back in September I blogged about Podcasters Across Borders (PAB) 2008. I wanted to go but let the opportunity pass. After listening to the 2008 sessions I vowed I would go in 2009. With all the economic uncertainty I'm back to thinking very hard about it, though still more for than against.

Anyone else from the Vancouver area thinking of going?

Podcasters Across Borders (PAB) 2008

PAB 2008It's hard to find a conference dedicated to podcasting, especially in Canada. The best I've been able to find on the left coast are occasional presentations at venues like Northern Voice or Net Squared Tuesday. Back East, there's Podcasters Across Borders. I wanted to go this year, but couldn't justify the travel costs (and I think I made a mistake).

But there's good news, the presentations were taped and posted online:

And I'm having a blast listening to them!

Anyone that listens to the Canadian Podcast Buffet knows there's a strong podcasting community back East. The conference podcasts certainly can't reproduce the face-to-face goodness that conference goers experienced. But, as the saying goes, they're the next best thing and well worth a listen in their own right.

If you have any interest in podcasting I strongly recommend checking them out.

And props to organizers Bob Goyetche and Mark Blevis. Awesome presentation choices, guys!
