I just got back from Podcamp NYC and it was a blast. I met a lot of really great people there. There were both podcasters and other web industry people at the event. I learned a lot more about podcasting and the podcast community. One thing that was interesting was that it seems like a lot of podcasters do podcasting as a hobby and not for a living. Many of the people that I spoke with weren’t monetizing their podcasts except for a few people. I likened it to ham radio hobbyists. Many of the people are passionate about podcasting but haven’t found a way to make money from it.
One pretty cool company that was at the event was StopMeIfYouHeardThis.com. They take videos of people telling their jokes. Check it out!
