Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

October 17th, 2009

vancouver-sun-logo2Sweet justice. Okay, I know it’s a stretch but it does feel like a wrong has been righted. Okay, so there wasn’t really a “wrong” at all, but now something is definitely right. I was a paper boy in elementary school, and for a little too long into Jr. High too (didn’t know it wasn’t cool anymore until it was too late). I delivered the Vancouver Sun and for 6 days a week for 4 years I’d stack my paper basket 4-feet high (yeah, that’s right, a paper basket, on the handlebars of my Sears-brand mountain bike) and I’d bring the news to the world (AKA the subdivisions of Chilliwack and the 55+ condos of Clearbrook). Today is a sweet day because today, Saturday, October 17 2009, I’m IN the newspaper.

The justice continues because I’m not really the subject–that would just be cruel–but rather CREATIVEMIX is in the spotlight and Marke Andrews covered all the bases with his pair of articles about the conference. I was surprised to read the reference to Wayne Gretzky by Terry McBride. Brilliant! I didn’t think we could work in hockey and The Great One into the promotion of this creative gathering but leave it to Terry to dial into Vancouver’s touch point. So, if you’ve picked up your paper from your porch, then keep an eye out for the articles. If you don’t get the paper delivered, much less have a porch, then you can read the articles online:

Paperless Buzz
Yesterday I shared the spot light with Noel Fox, one of our speakers, on Shaw’s Urban Rush and WOW was that ever fun! The time spent in the green room with the other guests was very cool and hosts Fiona Forbes and Michael Eckford are real pros. Lisa Manfield wrote up a great article (which was from an interview with Eileen and I) which is currently posted on Orato.com. CREATIVEMIX is on TV Week’s Top 10 Things to Do in Vancouver – cool! And our sponsors Vitamin Daily and Vancouver is Awesome are spreadin’ the love (and giving away free conference passes).

I love Saturdays.

Now Eileen and I have to drink a bunch of coffee.
