The Northern Voice conference this weekend was really fun. I found most of the sessions to be very interesting and thought provoking. The Geek Talk session introduced me to a bunch of new tools I need to check out. Robert has a good list of what was covered in the session.
The session on Citizen journalism was also very fun, even though we were squished up in the back of the room sitting on the floor. The last session of the day on Blogging, Passions and Personal Expression was the most interactive a funny of the whole day, who knew there were so many knitting bloggers out there!
Overall, for me, the conference was much better this year than last. Partly because I didn't have to rush off so I attended the whole day but also because registration was easier and everything was more organized. Congrats to all of the organizers, I'm looking forward to next year.
So we met tons of new people and caught up with a few that we haven't seen in a while. So a big HI to Boris, Bree, Darren (very busy guy), David, Dickson, Eric, Kris (didn't get a chance to talk), Maryam, Matt, Megan, Pete and Robert.
I'm sure I missed a few people so if you're not on the list please let me know.
