Is there, ultimately, any real point to what we do online, or is it just (as the critics claim) a safe little sandbox where we play at building castles that are stomped flat and then forgotten? A new Canadian documentary aims to answer that question […]

July 13, 2010

I’ve been living and working on the Downtown Eastside, Vancouver’s inner city, for more than a decade now, and when you live here that long it’s impossible not to want to give back to the community in a meaningful way. Since I’m not really in a position to give jobs, food, or shelter (except to […]

Yes, this is cross-posted from the Shebeen Club, but you need to read it both places so my blogs don’t feel all neglected-like. The Shebeen Club is a media sponsor of the Real Vancouver Writers’ Series, so we’re spreading the word as widely as we can. And yes, that’s the Royal We. Tonight W2 comes […]
