More Geekery

As well as a diverse and somewhat eclectic array of gargantuan GeekTalks (a tasty treat to tantalise your tastebuds!) at GeekFest Dubai (The NOTGITEX Edition) this Thursday, there will in fact be a Beanbag Workshop given by none other than Abdulla AlSuwaidi (known to the police as @Aabo0), who'll be sharing tips on how to produce professional podcasts. Abdulla produces that UAE-centric You There, Speak! podcast and will be explaining the technical requirements of podcasting (hardware, software), looking how to get to grips with the popular Audacity podcasting software package and then how you sort out the business of uploading and promoting your podcastery.

In doing this, he'll actually be recording an episode of You There, Speak! at GeekFest, so this workshop's a chance to learn the ins and outs of podcasting and become world famous.

Don't forget, if the idea of world fame appeals to you, that Dubai TV are filming at GeekFest so do feel free to break out that really, really geeky T-shirt you've been waiting for a special occasion to wear.

We'll also be joined by the lovely folks from EWS WWF (Emirates Wildlife Society and the World Wildlife Fund) who will be talking turtles and the work they're doing to preserve turtle habitats and reverse the decline in turtle populations in the Gulf and Indian Oceans. They'll also be selling their 'adopt a turtle' packs for Dhs200 each for those that want to contribute to this work as well as looking for any minted corporates that want to do something worthwhile with all that CSR budget.

GeekFest Dubai (The NOTGITEX Edition) will take place on the 21st October 2010 at The Shelter in Al Quoz. You can do the Facebook thing or follow @GeekFestDubai on Twitter (or tap me up at @alexandermcnabb) for more information.

That's all for now folks!

We can confirm that no globally ranked technology exhibitions were harmed in the preparation of this GeekFest.
