February 19. The first Northern Voices
bloggers conference was held in Vancouver, British Columbia, on
Saturday, February 19. The day began at 8am and there was an
after-dinner party that same evening. Vicki and I took Amtrak (in
this case, Thruway bus service) to town on Friday, staying over two
nights to be able to enjoy ourselves without rushing. This was
also Vicki's opportunity to go over to Vancouver Island and visit a
potter whose work she admires. It looks like she'll be back this
summer for a workshop that she learned about.
I didn't take my camera to Vancouver, so the only photographs that I can point to are those provided by the many others who took photographs and posted them to their blogs and to Flickr.
In Julie Leung's session, I had nearly run the battery down on Blocco, my new tablet PC. There were no outlets or power strips in the audience area of this side room. So I am without props altogether. What you can't tell in this picture is how wet my cheeks were through most of the presentation. Robert Scoble confided the same thing, and Tim Bray beautifully echoes the sentiment.

Vancouver BC arranged a dim sun brunch for Sunday after Northern
Voices. I love this picture for three reasons.
