Plug: Web Directions North

I have nothing to do with the upcoming Web Directions North Conference in Vancouver, BC, but I thought I’d give it a plug anyway. I’ve been trying to convince Dave to throw this thing in the summertime when it’s warm and gorgeous in Vansterdam, but since it’s a wintertime event, it doubles handily as a ski trip to Whistler. If you’ve never been to the Vancouver/Whistler area of the world, you should consider going to this event. Why? Great speakers!

A trip to Web Directions North is also a great excuse to renew your passport, if it has expired. Off to go do that right now…

    Awesome, thanks for the link love. Better Vancouver/Whistler than Ottawa in the winter though. Trust me on that one.

    Wonder if I can get my new place of employ to send me up, since it’s so close…

    (PS, Mike, I’ll be full time Seattle in a few weeks. You’re more than welcome to purchase me congratulatory beers once I’m there. ;-) )

    “Anil Dash — Thinks he’s never met me, but actually has.”

    I was actually just trying to deny that it’s true. Hooray forNew Yorkers at conferences! Oh, wait. :)

    Not only are there great speakers if you enjoy the slopes Whistler is incredible too. I was there last year and the conference was great.

    Good usage of speedlinking. Thanks Mike!

  6. I was going to defend Ottawa in retort of Dave’s comment but who am I kidding. On to Vancouver!

    Can’t believe I didn’t make the list! ::bows head in shame:: Gotta get out from under this rock of mine.

    I think Vansterdam/Hongcouver has an ordinance that all residents have to look hot when walking downtown.

  10. Mike Stickel says:

    I may not make it to the conference but I sure as hell am going to do what I can to get to Whistler.
