| Author: TalkShoe Team | In Announcements, Host Lounge News, Podcasting News Print This Post

Podcamp Pittsburgh was held this past weekend and fun was had by all. A tone of great discussions and sharing took place, and it was great to hear all the feedback about Talkshoe. Hats off to all the participants especially to the organizers. TalkShoe’s own Tommy Vallier was in the middle of things with the discovery of the new internet term Bacn (pronounced “bacon”). To find out more about Bacn (no it is not Spam, it is Bacn) visit http://www.tastyblogsnack.com/2007/08/20/bacn/ and http://www.bacn2.com. to see how it all got started.
