    TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - PodCamp Toronto 2009
(, a two-day event exploring the world of new media
community tools, is taking place February 21-22, 2009 at the Rogers
Communication Centre at Ryerson University in Toronto.
    "PodCamp is a great way for new media beginners and experts to meet and
learn from each other," said PodCamp Toronto Co-organizer Jay Moonah.
    PodCamp Toronto 2009 will bring together professionals and hobbyists from
across North America to explore the cutting-edge of new media. Key features of
the event include:

    -   PodCamp Toronto 2009 is an "unconference." Unconferences are events
        where participants, rather than the organizers, create and manage the
        content of the sessions.
    -   PodCamp Toronto 2009 is a free event. Costs are offset by the event's
        sponsors, and the event is organized by volunteers.
    -   Anyone can register to deliver a session or volunteer to help by
        signing up at Sessions can be on any
        aspect of social media.

    Over 700 people have already registered to attend the event, and people
have signed-up to host more than 45 sessions.
    This is the third PodCamp to be held in Toronto. The first was held in
February 2007. Over 300 people attended the event. The first "PodCamp" took
place in Boston in 2006. Since then, the format has become popular worldwide.
    "The international appeal of learning how to make media for one's self
has driven PodCamp to be very successful in the 2.5 years since we launched
it," said Chris Brogan, co-founder of PodCamp. "Because each community makes
their own PodCamp, they are all unique and powerful representations of what
people can do to equip themselves for the future."
