I’m attending Blog Savannah’s Un-Conference today. Currently we’re hearing from Phillip Sellers of iTour Savannah. He’s moderating a session on podcasting. Sellers, a former radio exec, makes audio tours of historic Savannah. His podcasts are offered as “teasers,” for the audio products available for sale on his site.
Like any conference of this sort, it’s a great opportunity to meet face-to-face with the sharp people who write (and talk) about topics they care about. Some of the people present at Bryson Hall today:
- Andrew Odom and Diego Orjuela from Evoca
- Josh Hallett
- Christian Livermore, Scott Larson and several others from Savannah Morning News
- Shawn Lata
- Gennie Bailey
- Burton Sauls
- Amber Rhea
- Chris Cree
- Sherry Heyl
- Susan Isaacs, Andrew Davies and Philip Joiner from Paragon : A Design Consortium
- Fitz Haile and Chris Miller of Creative Coast Initiative
My favorite quote of the day came from Scott Larson. He said, “to be a journalist you need truthfulness, fairness and accuracy.”
