Ireland’s first ever PodCamp, an event promoting podcasting and other new media methods, will kick off with an official opening by the junior minister for trade and commerce, John McGuinness, in Kilkenny tomorrow morning.

PodCamp Ireland is a ‘non-conference’ where the attendees determine the topics which are discussed in a relaxed, non-formal gathering.

Techies and non-techies alike will meet to discuss and learn about everything from the basics like creating a podcast to how it can be used to promote your business.

PodCamp Ireland is an event in the vein of FooCamp, a gathering started by the Irish-born publisher Tim O’Reilly who coined the phrase Web 2.0.

Branding and marketing strategist Krishna De, who is a blogging and podcast advocate, is one of the organisers along with Brian Greene of podcast production company Talking Voices.

De will be discussing both audio production techniques as well as why Web 2.0 is important to building communities for businesses.

The event is sponsored by Blacknight and Microsoft among others.
