Michael Geist Coming to UBC April 3rd

Just a quick note to say 2007 Clawbies winner Michael Geist will be speaking out at UBC on the evening of April 3rd.

The presentation is titled E-Publishing & The Law, and is being hosted by Canadian Journalism Foundation (CJF). There is no cost to this event, and details for registering online can be found on the programs page of the CFJ website.

I attended the Geist lecture, if you want, you can check my liveblog here (my own blog) or here (, for whom I guest-live-blogged),

I must say, that's some top notch live blogging there Raul.

I've tried a couple times. A much tougher skill than most would imagine. :)

Thanks so much for the kind words, Steve! I have also posted my thoughts on how I am living what Geist calls "The New Normal". Basically, how I have adapted to live in a geek's world without being one :o)

I started live-blogging just recently (at one of the Vancouver Bloggers Meetup) and it was so fun I've just kept doing it. There is a social media gathering happening next week (Third Tuesday) and Rebecca Bollwitt will be live-blogging it too (she is the media sponsor this time). Monica Hamburg is a great speaker.

Totally true, it's hard to live blog, but I guess it just comes with practice (and thank you Mom and Dad for paying for 9th Grade Typing!).
