Taking a closer look at Lisa Johnson and Kirk Lapointe’s Northern Voice 2010 session, “How (Should) Journalism Use Social Media?”

Housekeeping day: stab at Northern Voice report

Monday, May 10th, 2010

It’s Monday and closing on midnight and I still haven’t managed to write a recap of Northern Voice 2010, or address specific issues (of interest to me) raised by panelists. And since it’s already so late, this means it’s not going to happen today. Here’s a screen shot of some of my tweets from the […]

Gov2.0 and Northern Voice

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Great session this morning at Northern Voice, Gov 2.0 – Politics, Policy and Social Media in Canada: A Multi-Level Exploration, featuring David Eaves as moderator, with Raul Pacheco-Vega, Ian Capstick, Tanya Twynstra, and the most excellent Andrea Reimer. More later, but for now, a couple of images from Andrea Reimer’s presentation. (Did I mention that […]

Local emphasis

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

At Northern Voice 2009 (which I still have to assimilate/ digest), I attended a session on hyper-local blogging and also heard people (myself included) lauding the value of “local.” On the ferry ride home, I had a chance to look through The Wall Street Journal.

Friday, February 20th, 2009

Really hate to do this, but here’s a plain-and-simple place-holder blog post: hey folks, I’m at Northern Voice 09 in Vancouver, and having a great time. Inundated with people and information, too, which is why I’m not blogging. But – overall – having a great time. Vancouver is marvelous – obviously a beneficiary of population […]

Well, that was fun!

Wednesday, February 27th, 2008

Northern Voice 2008 was amazing. First off, Matt Mullenweg‘s keynote was amazing. 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 […]

Northern Voice 2008 — what a blast!

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

This afternoon I returned home from Northern Voice 2008, the 4th annual incarnation of this event. It was the first time I attended, and I had a great time. Learned a lot, met some terrific people, and experienced a really positive geek vibe — if that makes sense. I’ll post more later — probably tomorrow? […]

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 […]
