It’s been a much better morning than yesterday when I thought with the sun shining that nothing could go wrong. Well apparently when you get knocked down by a man barreling past you on the bus trying to get out the back door (3 blocks before his stop) it’s your fault, which he had time to tell me because he reached the back doors with plenty of time before his actual stop. Enough time to look at the path of destruction he left behind him in the aisles and make a snarky comment. That’s the end of my mini rant, now onto the link fest…
– WordCamp Fraser Valley preparations are in full swing. Please remember to sign up through the event website. There is no charge but we’d like to keep track of the numbers. Did I say “we”? Yes, Gary has allowed me to spread the word about WordCamp as the media sponsor. Not only will I be getting the word out, I’ll be liveblogging and speaking as well.
– Ross over at SimpleHelp.net (a great source for quick techie tips) invited me to do a guest post. I busted out the screencasting gear to talk about, well, screencasting [see: video]. I’ll have another post up there tomorrow morning as well.
– Today is the 50th anniversary of the collapse of the Second Narrows, aptly renamed the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge.
– The Stanley Park shuttle is running once again, “offering a free alternative to a car to get through the park.” [News1130]
– I was interviewed by the 24 Hours last week with regards to Stats Can concluding that BC has the highest number of internet users within a specific demographic. Ya Techcouver! Also, Rochelle Grayson (power tech woman at Donat who also created Twemes) was interviewed in the Province this past weekend.
– Tourism Vancouver offers half-price day-of ticket sales to events through their Tickets Tonight service (for things like Bard on the Beach). They just launched a Facebook group and each day they will be posting the following day’s half-price theatre and performing arts tickets. They also have a booth at 200 Burrard St and they just opened up a kiosk in the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza. It’s a great low-dough option for entertainment in the city.
As for my ticket giveaway, I’ll be going through the list of entries this afternoon and will notify the winners. You still have time to enter, simply link back to my post about the movie tickets on your blog and include the name of the movie you would like to attend on Wednesday. Good luck!
