Speakers

Q: I heard PodCamp Toronto is an “unconference.” What the heck is that?!

An uncon­fer­ence is a facil­i­tated, participant-driven event cen­tred on a theme or pur­pose (in this case, podcasting and various forms of digital media). Because we’re an unconference, we encourage our participants to exercise the “Law of Two Feet” (see next Q)
