We had a nice session at “Weblog Night in Charlottetown” tonight, with perhaps just under twenty people out. Of course once you subtract people related to Steven Garrity and various Burkas (and their handlers), the total of “we had no obligation to come” attendees goes down somewhat. But we had a good turnout nonetheless.
Thanks to Catherine, Steven and Rob for insightful reporting and commentary (and to Steven for thinking about bringing water for the panelists). Thanks to the ever-helpful Dave Cairns, Director of Computer Services at UPEI for hosting the event (including providing WiFi, which was a nice touch).
Dave mentioned his willingness to host similar events in future, and our gears are already starting to turn in this direction.
For those of you that attended, and are curious: this is the weblog we created in about 4 minutes while you watched.
And in case you missed it, here’s the Mainstreet interview [3MB OGG file] that Catherine and I did earlier today by way of promoting the event.
