September 25th is National Digital Media Day, which will see “more than 32,000 digital creators will unite across the country to profile the digital media industry in Canada. A pillar of the knowledge economy, the digital media sector represents one of the fastest growing sectors and Canadaâ€™s best chance for taking the lead in this creative, green, and global industry.” [NFF]
Thanks to Zipcar, I’ll be mobile so I’m going to start with breakfast in Surrey at 9:00am where anyone will be welcome to join Raul, John and I while we live blog. We’ll pack up and head to our next destination for about 11:00am and end up in downtown Vancouver for lunch at Salt at 1:00pm. From there we’ll head to another destination before I drop Raul off for the Vancouver Blogger Meetup, and I head to my live blog for the Keall Foundation that evening.
Farmstead Wines has also stepped up as a sponsor and we’ll have complimentary beverages for anyone who cares to join us at Salt in Gastown for lunch. I am still looking for sponsors in other cities (and hopefully a venue sponsor) so please feel free to contact me if you have any ideas.
