It seems as though I’ve been on the go since liveblogging last week’s CaseCamp. Seven days later and things have calmed down. There are no meetups this week, no conferences and no television appearances. In honor of such serenity, here’s a juicy link fest for your Wednesday morning reading pleasure.

Today is Wear Pink day to stop bullying [CKNW]. I’m not sure if this would be the most effective way to address the bullying issue but people around here sure are enthusiastic about their “wear a colour in support of something” campaigns. Read more about Anti-Bullying Day in the Surrey Leader.
If you’re a Surrey youth or young adult (13-21) consider submitting some of your artwork to Imagine-a-Nation, that will showcase “youth culture” at SFU’s Surrey campus on March 8th [Surrey Now].

On one final note, I have a new contest and I think it’s pretty swell. All you need to do is leave a comment on that post or send an email as directed and you’ll be entered to win the prize pack. Who knows, I may even toss in a little extra in the last few days.
