Completely blissed out after having a very edu-mi-cational Tuesday yesterday. Was very lucky to meet the enthusiastic crew of EQAO with Intangibles auteur, colleague & reformed protester Boyd Neil, when we presented concepts and examples demonstrating the impact of digital media on the education sector to our province’s communications professionals.
Wrapped the afternoon/early evening on my old stomping ground, UofT campus – Sid Smith specifically. Like a reverse of Proust’s dunkin’madelaine, the 70s dystopian architecture brought back the faint whiff of Fung Mess Hall chicken fingers & recycled over-brewed coffee. Long-time-bud-turned-expert-’crat & professorial-type Josh Hjartarson was misguided enough to expose a mess of malleable minds to my mad ravings on the subject of government relations. Of course Josh was his always affable self, presenting with sharp quips, awesome examples and too-hip clips. My jokes about Napster being free when I was in undergrad were met with crickets’n'tumbleweeds. Le sigh.
Some tough queries from the always bright UofT PoliSci students that’re TEN YEARS YOUNGER THAN ME. If y’all have any queries about what I *do* in GR…fire away…or click ahoy:
Finally, the most edu-mi-cational part of the day was discovering new music & meeting new Tweeps in the 2nd Twuneup Community (Follow’em @TwunesTO). My pick out of all the the amazing cover songs? Beck+Of Montreal = AWESOME (not crystal clear recording…)
