Northern Voice – After a Pale Ale

The morning sessions were pretty wicked, especially Dave O‘s podcasting P’s (plan, produce, promote). It really got to the core of the medium and his presentation, which consisted of black writing on cards (a la Bob Dylan) will be hard to beat. As he puts it, it was a “grass roots, electricity-free” and “stickin it to the man” type of presentation.

Northern Voice - Dave O on Podcasting

There’s a back channel on Skype where we heard about the lunch movement – venturing over to the pub for some food and a pint. The fish and chips were excellent but the wait was horrific. Not only was there a healthy blogger conference representation but there was a football (English football) match on the tube. This of course lead to a almost-too-long-to-be-tolerated wait for our bevies and bill. No worries though, John and I weren’t up for rushing back to catch the 2:00pm sessions and we’re now left with plenty of time to upload photos, chit chat, and prepare for the presentations at 3:30pm.

I’m on cup 3 of coffee but that’s now being mixed with a pint of G.I. Pale Ale so I’m going pretty strong. So far, lots of great stories, fascinating people, and despite the fact that I can’t wait to encounter even more of these experiences – I’ll totally be ready to crash tonight.

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one feeling the effects of some booze after lunch.

  2. Miss604 says:

    I think I could have used more ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. James says:

    I think you mean a rugby game, when you say ‘football.’ It was 6-nations, Wales vs. France.

  4. Miss604 says:

    Hehe – okay that would explain the guys in Wales t-shirts. We were sitting way over in the corner, about the only place you couldn’t SEE a TV (and the waitress couldn’t see us) ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. DaveO says:

    Righteous to see you in the stands Miss604! Thanks for coming to my presentation even though you are probably sick of hearing me yap on so much on the Crazy Canucks etc.

    Beers are lunch are basically required in some countries so i figure, … Who i am to cause a potentially diplomatic maelstrom my not drinking a pint with my repast?
