Vancouver Transit Camp is a go – Saturday, Dec. 8th at Workspace

Trolley Transit science fair exhibit - 4th gradeInterested in geeking out about all things related to Metro Vancouver’s belaugered transit system? Then punch your transfer for Vancouver Transit Camp.

Mashups, schedules, design, politics, business, seats, routes, maps, outings, and general conveyance enjoyment are all on the table cause this is an “un-conference” meaning you show up and pitch what you wanna talk about an/or vote on other peeps’ presentations.

Karen, Roland, Paul, Jason and more are working diligently to get the word out and make a neat event which costs little more than a $5 suggested donation from the first 100 folks who sign on the muster roll.
JMV makes cool buttons for transit camp
We are lining up sponsors (thanks to Vancouver green directory happyfrog.ca!) and invite you to rough up your workplace or wallet for a hundred or two to pay for the sweeeet WorkSpace facility (with exceptional coffee), lunch o’ rama for hungry participants and incidental expenses like cool buttons, art and ambiance.

Being a daily transit roller, I’ve appointed myself as the Seabus Czar and will answer and evangelize this crown jewel in the Translink empire.

I am eager to brew up some transit ideas for tourists trips (how to avoid those goofy, expensive tourist buses and see the real sights of Vangroovy) as well as rail on about turnstiles, advertising and reminiscing about the burbs before the ALRT. And you? Well if you have something to say, get over and sign up, showup and be ready to pitch in with words and thoughts.

Photo Tour of the Epic Eco trade show for happyfrog, Vancouver, 2007

jorg and olif (add to wishlist)
Stopped by Canada Place here in Vancouver a couple of weeks back for the EPiC show.

A kinda of eco/sustainable goods trade show with free samples of tasty goods, interesting building materials and transportation modes as well as a variety of clothes and household items, speakers, films, exhibits etc.

Pictured a killer jorg & olif dutch city bike (caution Flash site) – the very ones i am always yapping about and talked with on Urban Vancouver podcast #1 – Wellness at Canada Place. I noticed they are moving their storefront (they are in the midst of the Cambie/Canada Line construction chaos. Still staying the SE False Creek Fairview area i do beleive. They also sell some cool bags, baskets and wooden tubs to trick your ride and sharp helmets as well.

some damn fine pyjamasAnyhow, take a look at my photo series of Epic Vancouver 2007. The pics aren’t the finest due to my flaky settings but note also the fine products including Dream Designs kick-a$$ pjs and green hemp shirt (add both to my wishlist ;-)) and crazy bath bombs from Lush.
