Social Media Camp, that is! It’s that time of year, kittens: the time when we pack up the Cray, break out the cutoffs, and head to glorious Victoria, BC, to present a talk at Social Media Camp, the premiere conference of its kind in Canada, and that’s saying something. The conference starts with a soft […]
