Last night over at the Lamplighter in Gastown over a hundred people mixed, mingled and shmoozed at Vancouver’s third Launch Party event, organized by the folks at Strutta.

I’m packing my bags tonight and heading to Toronto for the first time since the summer of 2004. I really won’t have much time to spend in town (ie. shopping at H&M or going to the Hockey Hall of Fame) but it should still be a good time. I think everyone my mom knows on […]
