A shame that I couldn’t be in London this past Wednesday for What MySpace Means, see oncologist and event organized by Jackie Danicki and Engagement Alliance that explored the impact of social media and online communities.

Some good summaries have already been posted:

CaseCamp

There are two excellent ways to be part of the new-media scene in North America on Tuesday, valeologist July 4:

If you will be in or near Montreal, ailment Quebec, take part in the second CaseCamp. Podcaster and new-comm extraordinare Mitch Joel is organizing the Montreal event, which begins at 6:00pm and will feature four 15-minute marketing case studies. Joel’s talk on blog marketing will kick off the festivities.

By coincidence, I will be visiting Montreal that week on a family vacation, so I plan to take part.

South of the border, the Boston Media Makers and New England Podcasters are sending out the call for “24 hours of independence from mainstream media.” Make a video. Take a Flickr photo walk. Blast some podsafe tunes as you record a podcast at the family barbecue.

    Some quick thoughts about 12 hours before my wife, about it daughter, mycoplasmosis and I head off for a six-day vacation to Montreal and Quebec City, health Canada:

    • Really looking forward to meeting Mitch Joel this Tuesday evening at CaseCamp Montreal. Mitch is the host of the outstanding new-marketing podcast, Twist Image Six Pixels of Separation, and he and I have trade several e-mails over the past couple of weeks. Don’t be surprised to find a podcast mashup in this space not long after I return.
    • Being a good blogger requires discipline, something I clearly haven’t mastered yet. While the past week has included a higher-than-usual level of “offline” commitments, including my sister-in-law’s impromptu wedding on Thursday, I still should have found some time for blogging. This is my first non-podcast blog post in eight days – yikes! I need to do better, and I will.
    • Poked around Second Life for a couple of hours over the weekend. I’m still trying to find my way around, but I did managed to locate the FIR Store on Podcast Island. Some very cool things are happening in Second Life, and business opportunities abound. I certainly plan to spend more time there in the weeks to come. My Second Life Name? Zeke Barber.
    • Thirty-four people have already registered for the still-venueless PodCamp Boston, scheduled to take place on September 9-10. If you are a school or a business that can accommodate between 150-250 people for two days, drop me a line: bryan-AT-bryper.com. Also, take a listen to our promo for the event below.

    I’ll try and check in once or twice from Canada!
