While in the UK two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Nick Booth of Podnosh Podcasting face-to-face. We've "met" each other virtually via blogging, but with the opportunity to come to Birmingham -- having some face time to talk about the social web - along with Steve Bridger and David Wilcox was extremely valuable. (Soon, I will post my video of my interview with Nick and some video shooting techniques)
