I’m in lovely Vancouver, BC. I had heard their winter was one of record setting rainfall, so coming from the Arizona desert where we’ve had the opposite problem (111 days and counting), I was enchanted by the notion of seeing the spectacle of water falling from the sky.
No deal. Stepping off the plane was a glorious polaroid filter blue sky and lovely snow capped mountains for a backdrop (sorry words only, I took some time off from snapping photos).
It was a wonderful relaxing day at the hospitable Lamb homestead. Tomorrow we are slated with other colleagues for a Social Software Salon @ UBC (do not picture lavish hair stylists applying folksonomic tag gel).
Friday is a “Edublogger Hootenany” session at the Northern Voice Moosecamp, and Saturday, the main Northern Voice event. This is going to be a fantastic gathering and I plan to cross off a lot of names of Bloggers I’ve Always Wanted to Meet List.
Even more eerie is sitting at Brian’s dining room table, laptops 30 inches apart, as he deftly taps out another blog entry and I work on this one. Maybe I should send him a Skype call.
I’ll have to wait, he is Skyping his dad in Hong Kong.
This might be called Life 2.0.
