PAB2012, the last PAB, is one week from today

We’re just seven days away from the seventh and final edition of PAB, the conference formerly known as Podcasters Across Borders (imagine an audio recorder with a squiggle through it). Despite its strong roots in podcasting, the conference hasn’t been specifically about the audio arts since 2007. PAB has evolved into a conference about content creation, audience engagement and community building. Really, it’s a conference for creative people looking to share their passions online.

The program is rock solid. Don’t forget to REGISTER.
