Nice to see many amigo y amiga on the (albeit squirrelly) chat channel including GZ Expat, Australian guy, Hot Wheel, Chris Pirillo, RadioBread, Olympia Dave and more …

Big ups to Roland Tanglao (Roland is a Bryght guy and also makes Van Eats) for tending to all the crazy Ustream.tv tech stuff.  See also Urban Vancouver and Now Public for updates on live events.

Big thankies to Elastic Path (they make ecommerce software) for the fancy schmancy space for the instant studio

Kid Line

Edmonton and Toronto both had a “Kid Line”

from Wikipedia “Kid Line” entry:

The Kid Line was a NHL line for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1930’s. It included Charlie ConacherHarvey “Busher” Jackson and Joe Primeau. When they first came together as a line, Primeau was the oldest at 23 years old, while Jackson and Conacher were both 18. All three players are members of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

and from the Edmonton Oilers entry …

Adam GravesMartin Gelinas and Joe Murphy, their “Kid Line” (not to be confused with the 1931-32 Leafs’ Harvey “Busher” Jackson“Gentleman Joe” Primeau, and “Big Bomber Charlie” Conacher) won their fifth and, to date, final Stanley Cup
