At a noisy New Town Cafe in Vancouver’s Chinatown, Roland, Richard and me (Dave), we riff about noted geeks, Northern Voice and Moose Camp with social media bootcamp, presenting skills, video blogging, previewing my Fuck Stats, Make Art talk, last year’s Podcasting spiel and how to get tickets.
Namechecks for Matt Mullenweg, Marc Canter, Jordan Behan, Andy Smith, Warren Frey, etc.
I rarely mention the tasks i do to pay the bills however, that will change a wee bit as i am involved in a couple of noteworthy projects in that whole “new media, social networking, community building, web biz” scene.
Today’s announcement is big fun since I’ve been apart as an observer, friend, participant and now employee for some time and dig working with folks who are determined to do it with their values intact.
(in this photo i am clearly miffed that boris planned the same outfit and hair-do)
Here’s just a tast of me gushing on the Bryght crew from the aforementioned blog post:
Aside from the actual billable client work, these guys (yes, twas all gents at Bryght) are individually remarkable. I am saying this as a co-worker but also as someone who has reaped knowledge, friends and goodtimes (and even a job) through “hanging out,” participating in their events and “getting in where i can fit in” here in tech-groovy Vancouver.
