Hate to get all meta on y’allsies again, but need a segueway to relaunch…however painfully brutal this may be…As you can see, I’m WordPressing* not Blogspotting after a training period for some political thing. Besides that one-month foray into politics&tech, I haven’t uploaded any text outside of Twitter since the unspectacular campaign wrapped in Canuckistan.
No shortage of amazing shows before, after & during the that time period, too. Refer to Roberto’s YouTube to boo David Byrne‘s Massey Hall show, which was – bar none – the cream of the crop (not to disparage Nick Cave, Chromeo, Spinto Band, Wm Del Ray, Feist, Hot Chip, Radiohead, She+Him, Lykke Li, Emily+Delta, Samantha Martin, & a ton of others I’m too sleep deprived to remember…). Check out a pixelated posse of miscellaneous concert/life snaps via Facebook & the FlickrFiles to refresh memories I can’t dredge.
Anyway, it was a really, really good autumn – so good, in fact, that there was no time to capture it on the intertubes. Winter ahoy, then – shifting the focus from Toronto tidbits to publish a series of interviews I’ve been lucky to secure (lucky = having a very progressive & encouraging employer + kind, generous & well-connected friends) around the theme of ‘eAdvocacy.’
I’m beyond psyched (& honoured, flabbergasted, overwhelmed, etc…) that I’m blagging my way across the U-S-of-Eh so soon after the most significant ideological/political paradigm shift in my gen’s lifetime. Hyperboles aside, I hope to canvass the wide array of technophiles using/creating/modifying the web to create communities, raise awareness & – above all – affect change.
This wouldn’t be withoutayard proper withoutasoundtrack, though, right?
