Back in the spring, it occurred to me that it might be fun to have a blogging conference here in Vancouver. I ran a little survey, and the results indicated that some other people were interested in the idea.
Along came Boris and Roland, who really liked the idea. We finagled Lauren–who has forgotten more about conference planning than the rest of us know–to join us and Northern Voice was born. Here’s a photo of of us, apparently enjoying each others’ company.
We’re pleased to announce Northern Voice, the first Canadian blogging conference. Go, right now, to www.northernvoice.ca and check it out.
Registration will open September 1st, but we’re already accepting submissions from speakers. We intend to divide the day between presentations and discussion sessions. The presentations will be traditional seminars, with one or more speakers speaking on a particular aspect of weblogs and personal publishing. The discussion sessions will be open-mike “teach-ins”, where facilitators will lead a group conversation on a blogging-related topic.
