BlogWorld & New Media Expo

BlogWorld & New Media Expo is an event to help Bloggers, marketeers, podcasters and other digital media professionals the information and tools they need to build better websites, use social media like Google+, Facebook and Twitter correct and improve their audio and video recordings.

BlogWorld bought the New Media Expo in 2008, where it all came together as one big show. BlogWorld & New Media Expo was moved to Las Vegas Convention Center, then to Mandalay Bay in 2010. In 2011, it was announced the event would be split up into 2 dates a year – BlogWorld & New Media Expo East – in New York City and BlogWorld & New Media Expo West – in Los Angeles, CA.

Jason Falls interviews Keenan Cahill – YouTube Sensation

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIf there is anyone that has felt the success of YouTube, it’s Keenan Cahill. This 17 year old has been lip-syncing songs for 4 years. His videos are seen by millions ever since he covered Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”. Of course, growing up as Keenan hasn’t been the best. Suffering from a genetic disorder called “Mucopolysaccaridosis” (MPS-6), where his bones and cartilage did not get proper carbohydrates to grow. Still, his adversity gives him uniqueness, and since, YouTube stardom. Jason Falls sits down and talks with Keenan at the Overblog Booth at BlogWorld & New Media Expo in New York City. Keenan shares his wisdom of how to become a YouTube sensation. For instance – he mentions that he doesn’t refer to his audience as “Fans”. He addresses them as “guys”. Keenan is moving away from lip-syncing and planning to start...

10 Things I Learned From BlogWorld & New Media Expo New York 2012

The event is over. I am sitting in the Yotel, a very interesting hotel on the corner of 10th and 42nd street in Hell’s Kitchen part of Manhattan, New York. After 3 days of solid work, a ton of video taken, and a lot of new people I met, I have a few minutes to sit and reflect about this whole experience. It’s amazing how an event like this can really bring you closer to the people you hear about online. Because of this, I thought I would go through a top ten list of the things I learned not only being at the show, but also being a part of the show (even more than I was back in 2010). There were a lot of new faces.I polled each session I introduced, and in every session, 80% said this was their first BlogWorld & New Media Expo. It...

Help Kickstart Geekazine Special Media Feed’s Next Season

When I started going to conventions and other live events 4 years ago, I never expected having so much fun. Packing the bags with heavy equipment, hoping TSA won’t confiscate my luggage, waking up at 7 am and going to bed at 4 am does not sound like a fun job. Spending hours of time editing and posting video, while still trying to keep a literary head also doesn’t sound too much fun, either. But I do like to do it. It brings a level of accomplishment. Whether going out to BlogWorld and getting interviews from social media pros, or attending a local convention like Midwest Gaming Classic to get interviews and demonstrations. So here I am, four years later. Hundreds of videos alone – thousands in joint venture with others. Yet there are so many shows I haven’t covered yet. ComicCon in Los Angeles for 2012, SXSW...

Just like SXSW, the club had guest VJ’s and hosted events during the weekend. I arrived on Friday to the house with Mike Cioffi and Marc Chambers of the Low Budget FM show. The house was closed up and the cab just left. We were a bit concerned being off the strip, but then the bus showed up. A party came through. We walked through the house, which was pretty impressive. The house had 3 hot tubs, a waterslide, wade pool, game room and more. While the main house looked small, the other buildings on the premesis made for a spacious house with privacy if needed. I spent some time in the game room with Jim Lauderback and Coleen Kelly, along with Mike Rotman, producer of the Kevin...

Top 10 People to meet @BlogWorld

Well, BlogWorld is only a couple days away and it is poised to be one of the most informative shows for any blogger, podcaster or videopodcaster out there. The list of names reads like a United Nations summit of people in Social Media. The most interesting part of BlogWorld & New Media Expo is that you start to realize – We all don’t live in one spot anymore. While the West coast still has a great deal of Celebloggers, you will soon see that since you can create content from anywhere around the world, not all of those celebloggers and celebpodcasters reside there. Here is a list of 10 people you should meet and learn from this weekend. As any list goes, we could go on forever. Nonetheless, here are my picks: Adam Corolla Of course, Adam has been a powerful name in the space. The best part...

Yubby – Video Agregator – Blogworld #BWE09

On the Expo floor of Blogworld, we talked with Remco about a cool product called Yubby. Yubby is a system that lets you find, collect and publish videos on your site. With over 30 video sites in the mix, Yubby definitely has an interesting take on how to add video. We found out that Yubby was on the front page of the Blogworld site – you would highlight the speaker and a small video would pop up with them. Pretty impressive in it’s presentation. Yubby is free, but there is plans to make a subscription side which will be relatively low in price.
