Hi friends. This morning I ran my first “Twitter lesson” for an hour. I can’t take credit for inventing this strategy as I think I stole it from a few people in my timeline who I have seen do the same thing.
In case you missed it, here it is laid out below in the correct chronological order. Of course, there wasn’t space to get into too much detail with the 140 character limit so if any of these bring up questions for you please ask and I’m happy to answer them.
Very cool art project by Jay Shells “Rap Quotes”.
For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations. He then installed them at those specific street corners and locations.

I know it’s been a while since the event, but the TEDxVancouver presenter videos are finally online. I could only find 2 of them so far and will keep an eye out for the rest. The other presenter videos will be added here as soon as they are posted online (or as soon as I find them if they are already online.)

An excellent, well informed and well thought out debate on Canada’s Oil Sands and especially the proposed pipelines that are supposed to run through BC.
It’s great to see some common sense thrown in this mix and not just yelling and screaming from both sides. It seems like the pipeline debate in BC is dominated by PR talking points on both sides.
It’s refreshing to see 2 people who are clearly on opposite sides of this debate talk it out and propose some sensible solutions.
