Your friendly organizers 🙂

Hello everyone! The above organizers (that’s us) would like to thank everyone for making Podcamp Singapore v2.0 such a success! Thank you for hauling yourselves out of bed on a rainy Saturday morning to attend our event. 🙂


It was fascinating to note the different routes that everyone took to note down the content of the talks. We saw some blogging going on, as well as some recording for podcasting. Of course, the typical pen and paper was a common sight too! Many also brought along cameras to document certain graphs or statistics that were shared. It was great to experience first-hand how everyone came together to interact on this dynamic platform, and to see how various mediums were used to share takeaways with others in the community who did not have the opportunity to attend our event! The wonders of web2.0 in action! 🙂


We are so glad that everyone enjoyed themselves, and we really appreciate all the positive feedback. The speakers did a really good job in engaging everyone and starting very interesting discussions about topics that we are all very passionate about.

Let us share with you some of the following entries that have been done regarding our event! Here are some of Coleman’s thoughts on being a speaker. Derrick also covered some of the speaker sessions through live blogging on his webpage, as did Claudia on her site! There was some plurking and tweets going on during the event. Kelvin also did a brief summary of the sessions he attended on his blog! Do remember to use the common hashtag #podcampsingapore when blogging/ podcasting/ twittering.. you get the idea. 😉 

We would love to hear more of what you guys have to say about the event, what you liked and disliked about the event, so please feel free to drop us an email or leave a comment. 🙂
