Calling all social media junkies in Ohio (and surrounding areas) :

Just a little note to remind you all that Podcamp Ohio will be held this weekend in the glorious city of Columbus, Ohio. The event is FREE. Yes, I said FREE. If you are scratching your head right now asking yourself, “What the hell is a Podcamp?” — Please visit the Web site here.

If you are being highly productive and don’t have time to scan the site for information, then why are you reading my blog?!?! Just kidding of course. Here is a brief overview:
