We have had to change venue for tomorrow’s meeting:
It’s a pub called the Duchess of Kent. It’s 2 mins from Highbury and Islington tube, which itself is 10 mins from Oxford Circus on the Victoria Line.
We’ve released the videos from last Saturday’s sessions at the Guardian as two long videos available here.
Also see James Cridland’s notes on the sessions.
Guardian Session 1: Regulation and Podcasting
Guardian Session 2: Music and Podcasting
UKPA is hosting a seminar on rights with the Open Rights Group at the Guardian, Farringdon, London, Saturday March 29th 2pm – 5pm and it would be great if you would come and take part.
Becky Hogge and Matt Wells (heads of ORG and Guardian Audio respectively) will be there, as well as representatives from MCPS-PRS and AIM (Association of Independent Music).
ORG will discuss how the EU AVMS Directive could impact negatively upon podcasting (if we let it) and generally explain the current issues facing podcasters as they see them. In the second session, we’ll cover new developments in music and podcasting.
There will be an opportunity afterwards to eat, drink and socialise at a local pub.
Attendance is strictly limited to 50, and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Sorry but due to security, no tickets are available “on the door” – all places must be booked in advance by March 22nd 2008.
This event is free to UKPA and ORG members.
Please book early to secure your place.
The Scott Room, 60 Faringdon Road, EC1R 3GA – directly opposite 119 Farringdon Road (main Guardian building)

Hope to see you there.
One month to go until the nation’s first PodCamp, September 1/2 2007 at Birmingham NTI many UKPA members will be there, so make sure you’re with them. Here’s the blurb:
PodCampUK is a two-day event bringing all the excitement and ideas and energy of a PodCamp to the UK for the first time. This unique event promises to be a brilliant mix of ideas, LIVE music, FREE food, great people and much more.
PodCamps are meetups for anyone interested in New Media. The first PodCamp was held in Boston, Massachusetts, in 2006, and they are now spreading across the globe, enabling culture, commerce and connections.
The “Pod” in PodCamp comes from podcasting; but you can expect to find anyone at PodCamp, podcasters, video makers, software developers, entrepreneurs, journalists, musicians, social networkers, marketers, producers, publishers, PR firms, educators, actors, writers, boys, broadcasters, girls and Web 2.0 gurus, all using the internet to communicate with shared media.
Some are beginners, some are experts, but all are enthused by what they are doing, redefining the old media landscape and defining a brand new culture.
PodCamp UK is a free event, an open door on new media, organised by volunteers who have all experienced Podcamps elsewhere in the world. To pay for the venue for two days with food for all attendees, we now have sponsorship from UK businesses Cheeze, PodcastÂ Nation,Â and DigitalÂ Central. Nick Saalfeld from WellsÂ Park has very kindly offered to pick up the refreshments & JeffÂ Pulver has put a tab behind the bar for the Saturday night social.
This is a FIRST – media coverage is bound to increase as we draw nearer to the first weekend in September. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our sponsors, and helping to make Podcamp UK a truly special event.
UKPA podcasts 7 and 8 are now available, from the BECTU event and the Radio Academy Production ’07 event respectively.
