The moose will not let me be slow

I was going to try slow-blogging Northern Voice as I sift through my Moleskin, the podcasts and the 1837 pictures (as of last count) on Flickr, but I think I’m going to give up and just do up a list of links and thoughts:

  • My cohort in transit, Will Pate, posted a link to the podcast of our talk. Go look for it there.
  • I managed to avoid the con plague. I’m ready to declare victory over whatever gave Richard his ear infection, but I took a pre-emptive sick day which I’m hoping will nip any potential health foibles in the bud. I am much more likely to get something on the TTC or the YRT anyway.
  • Met many many people that either I already know through Richard (Megan Cole, Alex Samuel), through my own hanging in Vancouverness (Ian, Darren), who know other people I know (Phillip Jeffrey), or whom I’ve flat out never heard of (Pravin Pillay, who caught up with Richard and I on our way to the bus).
  • I got a copy of a very large book from Nancy White. I haven’t cracked it open yet, but its size is very intimidating looking. I was terribly inspired by her and Lee LeFever’s session on New Rules for New Communities, as well as the podcast of her session.
  • Since attending the session on vlogs, I’m considering donning my video chops again and maybe puttering around with vlogging. My first and last serious experience with a camcorder was when I took Television with my friend in high school, and our equipment consisted of an analog video camera recording on VHS tapes, and we edited using a linear system. Yay old sk00l!
  • I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to chat up Jason Mogus of Communicopia, who did an amazing session on social media for social change. He had some great insight into the intersection of “traditional” social change tactics, and how it intersects with the new stuff on the block. He brought to light some great examples, which I had only heard about peripherally, and devoted a bit of time to discussing how social media is making organizations rethink their entire approach to campaigns as a result of how each individual is a potential content-generating, crowd-mobilizing world-changer (…or something like that). I also enjoyed Kate’s walkthrough of ChangeEverything (which I should really post to again at some point, if only to explain why I’m not posting…which I may already have done).

More to come, hopefully!

  2. Besides strength building (due to bulk) I hope the book is valuable. Any feedback is always appreciated.
