Where’s the Money in Media Event

May 26, 2009


This comes from Facebook, and with a hat tip to Raul Pacheco. In a climate of mainstream media collapse, this should be an interesting and possibly heated event.

May 17, 2009


BeyondRobson blogger and renegade Sean Orr has an exhibition of his photography at the new HOTEL Gallery at 165 East Hastings, next to the Balmoral Hotel.

If Things Look Down, Look Up

December 3, 2007


This is a marvelously inspirational column by Thomas Hoving, heartlessly stolen from the December, 1985 issue of the now-defunct and oft-lamented Connoiseur magazine. Early this fall, I had one of those “Chicken Little” kinds of days. Not only the sky but the whole world seemed to be collapsing. Riots, bombings, apartheid, earthquakes, and plane crashes […]

They put the hard sell on a couple of times, but it’s nonetheless worth listening to if you’re using your blog to raise your professional profile because it’s pretty solid on both […]
