July 4, 2017

1

WordPress for Revolutionaries! An ambitious title, an ambitious talk, for my inaugural keynote speech! I’ve given a variation of this talk at BIL Vancouver previously, but since they only allowed ten minutes for your talk, this one is going to be a bit more expansive, including talking about various types of revolution: its not just […]

Oh yez, oh yez, oh yez, announcing the return of raincoaster media (ie me) to the business of writing blog posts and running social media for clients. It’s been almost a year I’ve been away, concentrating on The Cryptosphere, the greatest little hacktivism and cyberwar news site in Canada, in fact, possibly the only one. […]

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.

  After an all-too-brief sojourn at an ecovillage on Vancouver Island, I’m headed back to the Big Smoke for the summer. Yes, I’ll still be in East Van, just a lot closer to Metrotown than to Oakridge this time. Time for me to ping my media contacts and get myself booked on some things to […]

Talking Bitcoin on Ricky Shetty’s DaddyBlogger TV!

March 14, 2014

Ricky Shetty is a tireless connector, networker, and internet powerhouse who has, like many people who have these skill sets, decided to integrate his work and his non-work life more directly, and the result: Daddyblogger.com. He asked me a few days ago if I’d do a Google Hangout, so I said yes and the power […]

Social Media Lessons from the Homeless: Ideawave 2011

I love the Ideawave conferences. No matter what the topic, the timeline is ten minutes, so it’s ideal for Short Attention Span Theatre chicks like mineself, whether we’re presenting or just watching. In the last two instances, I have been presenting, so here is me from 2011 presenting on Social Media Lessons from the Homeless. […]

And once again, Allison Markin the Social Media Queen of the Okanagan has invited me to speak at Eat.Drink.Tweet, a social media conference dedicated to food, wine, tourism, and of course, social media. As you might […]

Getting Judgey at Vancouver Startup Weekend

October 4, 2011

Yes, it’s a legitimate excuse for me to judge people! For the second year in a row the organizers of Startup Weekend Vancouver (sponsored by the ever-awesome Kauffman Foundation) and specifically James Karg have asked me to be one of the judges for their Dragon’s Den-style event. By the time the judges see the presentations […]
