We had a great time at the Business Link Brown Bag Presentation on PODcasting for Business last week on October 2, 2008. Thanks to all of the folks from the Business Link – Sonja, Heidi and all of the folks who attended – in Edmonton and at the remote video conference sites. There seemed to be a lot of interest in Podcasting for business and that’s a good thing.
