Whoa dude, @kk just uploaded my whole spiel from #wcw09 talking ‘bout revolutionary publishing from Greeks to Geeks http://bit.ly/10lMp
“Are you Worthy?” or “History of Personal Publishing from Greeks to Geeks” – ergo:
The mighty power of web publishing should not be taken lightly. Traditionally, for stories to reach an audience required navigating layers levels or publishers, printers, editors, distributors but with WordPress, anyone can spread stories to a worldwide audience, instantly, for almost free. Awesome! But do you deserve this power? Of course you do – as long as you make something remarkable.
To make your work rise to the top requires diligent honing of your craft – from writing to photography. Writer and documentarian Dave Olson (AKA uncleweed) will offer reasons to push yourself to create art, as well as share practical methods for finding inspiration and following through to publication.
By exploring other forms of grassroots publishing, and exploring real-life WP examples, you’ll leave with a keen sense of your place in the history of personal expression, and a renewed vigour for making your best stuff ever.

Got my 30 pound suitcase of classic and grassroots literature and heading to meet my #wcw09 squad at @raincitystudios via the 17 bus
On 17 bus downtown to chat with @scales & @kk about olympics indie media project – then prep for @wcwhistler preso about renegade publishing
Now that I think of it … Not sure where bus 17 goes – hopping off to walk to Raincity studios hq
Scant metres of visability from the seabus this foggy morn
Eerie totally dark outside on the seabus – can’t see lights on either shore in the fog of burrard inlet
#16 is MIA let’s see where the #17 goes – either way, gonna be late … Soon I shall surrender to Translinks chaos and buy a car – very soon
So much for an early start at the office – waiting for 16 arbutus bus for :25 minutes downtown – Translink why must you break my heart?
