After a hearty breakfast at Ricky’s we’re now chilling at Blenz in Central City / SFU Surrey. So far this morning the traffic has been horrendous so after this we’ll head straight to Gastown for the 1:00pm meetup.

Raul and Central City

Our youngest NDMD participant

The kiss event (one of the only events mentioned this morning in one of the local papers) will be starting at 11:30 (right now!) although please check out my NDMD08 posts I have been updating for the last few months for more activities that have been arranged for the rest of today.

  • Salt / Farmstead Wines Meetup @ 1:00pm
  • New Media BC AGM @ 3:15pm
  • New Media BC NDMD08 celebration at Radical Entertainment @ 5:30pm
  • Vancouver Blogger Meetup @ 7:00pm
  • My charity live blog for the Keall Foundation live here @ 7:00pm
  • If you are able to meet up with us, please bring donations (non-perishable food items) for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and we’ll swing by there later with our contributions from National Digital Media Day.

    Our travels today are made possibly by Zipcar. If you would like to sign up today, please use this special Miss604 reader discount link where you will receive an annual membership for just $30.

      You continue to blow me away with your awesome intrepidness and creativity. I only wish i was up and about rolling with you to the boroughs!

      PS When you come to North Van, can you bring me some soup and a sandwich?

      I’m sorry, if your little blog tour didnt get mentioned, there was a crunch on space – I only get 400 words and my editor liked the idea of the Kiss event for the front page, so the rest got hacked. (MSM, what can you do?)

      BTW, the AGM was mentioned, BarCamp was mentioned at much love was given to the spirit of the day.

      ^You should try to be more condescending. That way you could be even cooler then you already think you are. Cheers
