We Haz Sponsors (a.k.a., Firetalks – Update 3)

Well our call for sponsors last week was a huge success! Again we’d like to thank everyone for RTing or otherwise getting the word out. In the meantime if you are a sponsor or know of people still looking to get involved in ShmooCon, check out the Podcasters Meetup’s latest post.

Now on to the big news at hand … the announcement of the ShmooCon 2010 Firetalk sponsors!!!


First I’d like to mention the many folks that’ll be helping out in the props area.

Note that we are still looking for a Countdown Timer, Gong, and Logo (see the master ShmooCon 2010 Firetalks post for more information on these items). So if you don’t have a big budget but would like to help out, you can always volunteer to bring one of the above items. As noted before, either contact us or mention @grecs on Twitter if you’re interested.

Now on to the participant give-aways and prizes…

Although all the official speaking spots are full as reported two weeks ago, we are still seeking people to add to our Alternates List just in case any of the confirmed presenters are unavailable. If any of the speakers are not present, we’ll just start calling people from the top of the list. At a minimum you’ll get some PR with your name and title on the master ShmooCon 2010 Firetalks post.

To submit a talk, use the Contact Us link above. Enter your name as you want it to appear and use FireTalks as the subject. In the Message area please include the title of your talk as well as a one paragraph summary of your presentation. You can also include a link to your website or preferred social networking profile and we’ll link your name off to this site/profile.


Well it’s been a great week with getting most of the sponsor stuff taken care of. As usual, we’d like to thank the community for getting the word out! We really appreciate all the RTs and mentions. And if you’d like to RT this post, we wouldn’t mind that at all. See ya!
