d.Construct Podcasts | September 28, 2006

If you couldn’t make it to d.Construct06, there is no need to panic. We podcast the whole event and will be releasing each session over the coming weeks. Jeff Barr’s podcast on Amazon web services is already online, and I just published Simon Willison and Paul Hammond’s podcast on web services for fun and profit.

Looks like calling them “podcasts” might not be the wisest idea, since Apple seem to be litigation-happy about the name…

I’m just a little curious why we should pay to attend event if videos and podcasts are free a short time after the event? Apart from the free beer after the event?

Speakers and presentations are the nucleus which conferences solidify around, but they are much more than that. They are an opportunity to meet like-minded people, network, share ideas and celebrate the industry we work in. If you are just interested in the talks that’s cool, but by not attending you are missing out on the whole experience. It is the difference between watching a travel show about a destination and actually going there.

The more prosaic answer is that if nobody comes to the event, there will be no event and hence no podcast. So If you enjoy a podcats I do suggest you show your support for the event and go along. You may just find yourself enjoying them.

Well put Andy.

Attending and seeing these kind of presentations directly and with all the non-verbal context, does a lot for me.
