Yes, it’s back in the saddle for me: I’ll be speaking at the Yellowknife Rotary Club meeting at the Top Knight 5:30-6:30 this Thursday, September 8.

November 13, 2010

Much as I tease the Drupalites for their blind adoration of a platform with the world’s worst user interface, I do acknowledge that Drupal is a powerful tool, and have always been curious about it.

Sometimes I feel like I’m in some unnamed industry other than social media training, because ALL my best professional opportunities seem to happen in pubs. Last night, for instance, I was hanging out at the Alibi Room and got invited to come talk to Vancouver Startup Weekend about social media for startups. By the time […]

Image via Wikipedia I can’t resist a tea party. Unfortunately, I’ll HAVE to miss this one, as I’m going to be out of town. Still, the least I can do is post it (even though it goes against my “I’m not event blogging anymore” self-imposed rule; still nobody asked me to do it, so at […]

August 12, 2010

Tweetups have only been around a couple of years, so it may seem odd to write a post laying down the etiquette of something that’s still coming into being, but with the pace of change in social media there is ALWAYS no time like the present. Anything else risks becoming nothing more than reminiscence. This […]

The deets: 6-9pm Thursday, August 5th Meet at Trout Lake Beach and prepare to perambulate. This is a participatory […]

Pimp My Blog This 201-level workshop offers practical tips and tools for increasing your readership and influence, and applies to any blogging platform (with the exception of Tumblr, which is really only good for talking to the voices inside your head in my opinion).
