Okay, after all kinds of drama....
We will meet this Saturday, January 22nd, 2005 at 9am sharp.
Registration starts at 8:15am.
Check out the Day's Sessions.
The Con (as we like to call it) will no longer be held at Parsons.
The new location is:
Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP)
on the 4th Fl.
Corner of Waverly and Broadway
This is a mapquest link to ITP
We are proud that ITP has agreed to sponsor Vloggercon.
However, space is limited...and they are restricting us to a limited number of people.
Of course Vloggercon is still free...but now we must be strict with registration.
IF YOU ARE NOT ON THE REGISTRATION LIST, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE BUILDING.
All confirmed registrants have been sent an email saying they are confirmed.
Please do not bring any friends who are not on the list.
if you have questions about your status.
Even if you cannot come in person...join us live in our videostream with IRC chat
on Saturday, Jan 22.
We have videobloggers aroud the world who will partcipate in the Con through the stream.
There will be an IRC representative in each Session to give a voice to the people online.
Also, look out for the Unmediated Conference
It will be a much bigger event with mulitple sessions and purposes.
The purpose of Vloggercon is for videobloggers to get together to talk about the
work we've done this year and where we want to go.
To dispel any mystery, no one at this get-together created videoblogging.
Videoblogging is simply the act of using blogging software to post video.
It's actually pretty easy.
However, in the last year... a very intense, creative community
has gathered around the videos we posted.
A conversation has developed through video... that seems to keep growing.
Many of these people will be at the conference.
We are here to meet each other face to face for the first time.
There are also some in our group who are building some very exciting tools which we hope to understand more.
We welcome non-videobloggers...since putting video on the internet is a hot idea right now...but we hope you understand that this is a conference put together on little money.
Our intimate gathering has become a bit of a spectacle.
So if you are not passionate about attending we ask that you give your space to someone who just cannot miss this day.
A waitlist has been created for any empty space.
The day will run on the passion of posting video and the deep connections that have been made in the Videoblogging group.
Please contact me if you are from out of town and need help.
Here's a great site
