Possible Speaker Topics

by Darren Barefoot ()

At our meeting this week, we brainstormed on some potential topics for speakers. I've posted the list to the speakers page. This list certainly isn't exclusive, but it may provide potential speakers with some inspiration.

Registration is Open! Win a T-Shirt!

It's September 1st, and so registration for Northern Voice has opened! We're taking Visa and Mastercard, and the first 25 registrants get a free Northern Voice t-shirt. It's a mere CAN $20 if you register in advance, and CAN $30 at the door.

Pictures of our spiffy UBC Robson Venue

You can find (blurry, excuse my cameraphone!) pictures of our spiffy UBC Robson venue for Northern Voice over on Flickr as follows:

We have booked 3 rooms for all day including the theatre which could possibly be used for a brief opening session.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Getting to the Northern Voice Conference

by Boris Mann ()

We've been pretty pleased with the number of people from outside of Vancouver that are potentially going to attend the conference.

I just noticed this posting from MasterMaq talking about the price and time differences between taking a plane or a bus from Edmonton, plus there are rumblings from Montreal and Seattle from potential attendees.

It sounds like there may be quite a lot of out of town guests, so we are looking at talking to hotels and getting discount rates. While we can't charter a plane, group rates might be possible. You locals – post some suggestions of good downtown hotels (basically, the criteria is that it should be within easy walking distance of Robson Square).

And hey – if anyone has a room to share…well, talk amongst yourselves.

Add your voice

As we come across posts that say people will be attending, we're adding their feeds to our Voices section. This aggregates your blog's feed, and makes it easy for people coming to the conference to find each other's sites.

Leave a comment on this post or use the contact form if you want to let us know you're coming and you want your feed added. Of course, once registration goes live on or about September 1st, we'll include a field asking for your weblog URL – we'll add those automatically.
