Welcome to Echo Hub! We’ve been working on this site for months, so we’re thrilled it’s finally live. Here’s a guided tour of what you’ll find on EchoHub.com:
When you first arrive at Echo Hub, you’ll find three main sections of the site — Posts, Store, and Live Events.
Current content from each of these three sections is represented on the Echo Hub homepage, so start there to get an idea of what’s new in each of our three sections.
Now, let’s move on to Posts, the section where you’ll find our editorial content.
As you can see, the Posts homepage features our most recent content, from essays to tutorials to resource reviews and recommendations.
If you’d like to dig into a specific category of Echo Hub Posts — Video, Design, The Web, Communication, Technology, or Creativity — you’ll find those options at the top of the page.
Another item to note in Posts is our Editor’s Picks, a list of five articles we consider recommended reading even if they’re not brand new.
We think you’re going to like the Echo Hub Store. It features a special lineup of items for artists, geeks, and storytellers.
Products in the Echo Hub Store are organized in the following categories for easy browsing: Productivity, Media, Books, Art, and Apparel.
When you find a product you like, add it to your cart or save it for later by adding it to your Wish List.
Sure, Echo Conference takes place In Real Life, but that didn’t stop us from creating a nice home for it on the Web. Our Live Events section offers featured Echo videos, great photos from our conferences, and an archive of the speakers and leaders who’ve presented at past events. Also, When we have more news about upcoming Echo events in 2012 and beyond, this is place where we’ll let you know.
The Past Speakers page is your chance to browse the complete list of Echo speakers, teachers, worship leaders, and more from 2008 to 2011. Click on any individual to see a brief bio and an overview of that individual’s involvement with Echo.
The Featured Videos collection includes quick excerpts from Echo keynotes and the full versions of other videos we’ve produced over the years. Conference opener videos, Davin, Johnny & Chachi — they’re all there.
Event Photos is simply a curated set from our Flickr stream designed to highlight different aspects of Echo Conference, from worship to teaching to interaction between attendees. For more photos, click on through to our other Flickr sets.
THE END … FOR NOW
So, that’s Echo Hub: Posts, Store, and Live Events. We have a few ideas for expanding Echo Hub in 2012, but we’ll tell you more about that when the time comes.
Thanks for stopping by.
Scott McClellan is the Editor of Echo Hub and the Director of Echo Conference.
