Five years ago, Darren got the idea for Northern Voice in the shower. A handful of Vancouver bloggers got on board and Canada's first personal bogging and publishing conference came into being. Five years on the conference has continued to grow in numbers and caliber. Last weekend's conference highlights included keynotes by CBC's Nora Young and Stewart Butterfield, the cofounder of Flickr. As a marketer I was also pleased to see sessions that touched on keeping corporate blogs fresh.
For those of you who missed Northern Voice or couldn't get tickets because the event sold out in just three days, all the sessions have been recorded and will be available online for free. We'll give you the heads up when the video is available.
Thanks to the rest of the volunteer organizers and to everyone who attended and made Northern Voice such an exceptional event.
