WordCamp Gets Covered in the 24 Hours

This morning edition of the daily commuter paper, 24 Hours Vancouver, has local radio host and tech columnist Buzz Bishop giving the low down on the happenings at last week’s WordCamp.

As he was not in attendance, he cited my live blog for more info and included a huge photo of Lisa’s “Your Ad Here” sign on her bum. The image deals with the topic of advertising on blogs, however I wonder if he’s also tying it in with his column about saving face with Facebook, “don’t put up anything you wouldn’t want your mom to see.”

WordCamp Links in the 24 Hours

I hope not, because on top of having a great sense of humour Lisa’s got some excellent insights on her post and be sure to read through the comments (over 50 of them) for thoughts about ads on blogs. John Chow is also mentioned in the article since he’s the king of blog dollars around here and I brought him up during my talk at Simon Fraser University on Monday (cause I actually think what he is doing is ingenious, which is more than I can say for other ad-plastered blogs).

For more info about WordCamp and your next opportunity to meetup with WordPress users, gurus and newbies, check out the Tazzu blog because they did a great job of spearheading the first event and we’re certainly all looking forward to more.

    I agree with you. Lisa made a great post asking people about the best/most ethical/appropriate ways to monetize blogs, and of course it was a hit! Two very smart and positive reinforcing strategies – John linked to Lisa and Lisa linked back to John. Both have huge readerships and thus, the comment volume increased exponentially. Another reason for link love! And you’re one of the best examples of local Vancouver top-notch bloggers who provides lots, and lots of link love (and to those of us lucky enough to know you outside of the boundaries of the blogosphere, you also provide a great friendship).

    Lisa is such an awesome dork.

    oh boy! can’t get away from that thing! the monetizing issue was definitely a hot topic. it would be cool to get a chat, forum, or ustream debate on the topic.

    also link love is definitely a sweet thing.
