PodCamp Boston 5 starts tomorrow, and I’m excited to be going there with my sweetheart, Lesley Lambert. Both she and I will be facilitating sessions on Sunday. Lesley’s topic is Advanced Twitter, and I’ll be facilitating a discussion on Geolocation. I’ve facilitated sessions on Geolocation at RE BarCamp Orlando and RE BarCamp Rye, and my slidedeck for it has been viewed 1,178 times on Slideshare.net. I’ll be modifying the presentation for the PodCamp environment versus the real estate camp.

This will be my third PodCamp Boston, and lucky 13th camp of any variety.

I love the things that happen at camps, the people, the sessions, the networking, the brainstorming, the learning, the teaching, the sharing, the connections that people make. Being somewhat of a Camp veteran, I especially enjoy helping newcomers have a good experience as much as I enjoy reconnecting with old friends. I also love “seeing” the camp through others’ eyes, especially Camp virgins, but I love veteran’s thoughts, photos, videos, blogs, tweets, and whatever other media is produced.

Here are some links looking back at my previous Camp experiences, including PodCamp Boston 2, where I knew no one going into it, but made some great friends:

Looking forward to what this weekend brings at PodCamp Boston 5!

Geolocation, Geolocation, Geolocation

Climbing Mt. TomI’ve been following the developments of our geolocation-enabled world for many years now, starting with car GPS navigators and geocaching, through to Gowalla and now Facebook places. Geolocation’s ubiquity is part of the reason this blog is called World 2.0.

There are some applications of geolocation in the credit union world, in social media in general, and there are even more applications in the field of real estate.

I had the great honor to present a session on geolocation at RE BarCamp Orlando yesterday. I received some excellent feedback from it, and the slide deck was featured on Slideshare.net‘s home page this morning.

I hope to present this session at RE BarCamp New Hampshire!
