Grass roots events are springing up everywhere. If I miss one that you know of, be sure to get that info to me!
They explain this event here:
Podcamp Philly is a New Media Unconference, now in its second year. This year's conference will concentrate on taking your new media projects, whether podcasts, video podcasts, blogs, or websites to the next level. We have partnered with the Search Marketing gurus to present a track of sessions on Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing, to help enhance your internet presence.
For people new to Unconferences, Podcamp, and New Media, we will have a page on our website leading you to the Introduction material- podcasts and videos- you might want to review before attending podcamp, introducing you to the basics of Social Media, Podcasts, Wikis, RSS and more.
