New Media Cincinnati - greetings, thanks, and call for discussion topics

Hello all you New Media Cincinnati folks!

I hope that this message finds you well. I know we're all probably looking forward to the warmer, hopefully not as wet, spring weather.

First of all, thank you so much for being a part of the New Media Cincinnati group. I'm definitely impressed by the variety of gifted and talented folks I've had the chance to meet with over the past several months. For example, here are some folks who attended the last meetup in March:

At these meetups, we can always count on some great conversation. Lately we have also made some time for focused discussion around a particular topic or event. I remember when Cliff Ravenscraft recorded a live Podcast Answer Man episode, showing the group how he produces one of his podcasts:


At the recent March meetup we spent time talking about what Podcamp is and why someone would want to attend a Podcamp. We had Angelo and Heather Mandato from Columbus down to visit, and we talked about Podcamp Ohio, which will be June 28, 2008:


I like that these focused discussions/presentations usually last for about 15-20 minutes, so that we have ample time for other great conversations. It would appear that the group feels the same way. The great thing about these focused discussions is that it gives us a chance to practice our presentation skills and in general learn something new.

So, let me open it up to you. What topics would you like to see discussed at future meetups? Remember that the group is not just about podcasting (although many of us are podcasters); we're all into new media and social media and how it's being used in our lives, whether for business or even just as a hobby.

Also, if you would like to present on something, let me know. And if you'd like someone in the group to present on something, let me know.

Thanks again for helping to make this a great community!

Make it a great day!
