Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Every year hundreds of social media enthusiasts and those curious about all things web convene for Northern Voice.

although it is a weblog conference, the range of topics may involve anything that webloggers are interested in… that is, just about anything. Previous years have had plenty of geekery mixed with panels on how blogging interacts with family life, education, travel, photography, community building and establishing professional profiles. Speakers range from the big names at the top of the Technorati rankings to first-time presenters with a passion to share. [NorthernVoice]

And howThis past year it officially reached “society” status in BC, and celebrated its largest attendance.

It’s also the source of all those Bloggable t-shirts.

A mini and solely unconference version, BarCamp Vancouver, will be taking place this September – just in case you need your social media meeting fix a few months in advance.

    It’s on a hanger in my closet now and when I look at it (size small) I just chuckle and remember to give it to you… then I forget.

    ladies, let it be said that an additional service provided by a blogathon is about the appropriate allocation of swag … or, at least, past-swag.

    In any of these social meets, have there been any discussions / news / announcements made by people who have begun research theses, based on sociological / economical / statistical aspects of the movement?

    How about a t-shirt that says:

    Front: (small-type) you are so … (big type) HUGGABLE …
    Back: … BLOGGABLE …

    The two words may of course be swapped …
