WHO: Podcasters, Musicians and those interested in podcasting or indie music
WHAT: The Podcast Hotel
WHEN: February 23-25, 2005
WHERE: Seattle, WA (various venues)
WHY: The Podcast Hotel is a conference with a twist â€“ itâ€™s what some people are calling an â€œunconference.â€ People get together to hear people speak but also to create their own works, learn a ton, discuss issues and exchange ideas. And, of course, music is at the center of our event. We teach musicians, helping them make connections so they can better promote their work. And at night, we record their music, which we then promote to the world through our podcasting network.
