If you’re in Western New England, I have some good news and some bad news. It snowed again, but I am on television tonight.  So if you’re snowed in tonight and staying warm, please tune in.  Connecting Point airs at 7:30PM on WGBY.  It’s my second arts segment with the show. Luckily we got to film this week, in spite of all of the snow.  The first segment was about music.  Tonight is all a bout film.  There is so much that can be covered when your canvas is “arts in Western New England.”  Theater, poetry, comedy, painting, and dance are definitely on the radar. If you have show ideas, please comment below.

I am also very excited about PodCamp WesternMass.  It’s an “un-conference” about social media and online networking. It is happening at Westfield State College on Saturday, February 5th all day.  If you don’t know about PodCamp, TweetUps, and the social media networking landscape in Western MA, then come out to learn and play!  If you already tweet and blog your little butt off, then this is the place for you!  It’s only $25, and it’s a smorgasbord of fun and learning.  Their site perfectly states, “Bloggers, business people, artists, and academics, to get together, make connections, and for everyone to learn how social media can enhance their business, cause or organization. This is also a chance to celebrate the cornucopia of Western Mass. culture, a joyous blend of urban and rural; business, artistic and academic; near enough to other large metro areas, but small enough to hear yourself think.”  I am a PodCamp virgin and can’t wait for February 5th!
