It’s already the week *after* DemoCampVictoria01!

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Good grief, how time flies — I promised another update, didn’t I? I’m a bit surprised that I haven’t come across more blog posts, other than those by Mark Lise, Tris Hussey (great photos, Tris!), and Boris Mann (and the earlier posts from those same folks, see my April 4 entry for details) that discussed […]

DemoCamp Victoria 01

Friday, April 4th, 2008

I’ll post more later when I have time, but Boris Mann and Tris Hussey are first past the post getting info about last night’s DemoCamp Victoria on to the web.

Just for a taste, take a look (er, I mean listen) at this site and look at these photos posted to Flickr or this reverse liveblogging transcript from Stewart Mader. Some key points that stuck in my mind: Exhortation #1, remove the FRICTION […]

Victoria: turning into everywhere else? It’s creativity unleashed

Saturday, February 16th, 2008

Perhaps Victoria is “turning into everywhere else,” and that’s a good thing? It is when it means that modern creativity is unleashed, on the streets, and in our coffee houses. This morning I was cataloging my books on LibraryThing while my husband went out for breakfast to meet Rod O. from Magic Kite at the […]
