The other weekend was the 7th annual Northern Voice social media conference. I’ve attended this conference many times in the past, and this time went avec Isaac. I was a bit nervous about bringing him along, even though the conference has always been billed as welcoming kids, because of what happened last year. Reader’s Digest … Continue reading Community Conferences – Bringing along Baby
At this year’s Northern Voice conference, one of the more visible sponsors was TravelMasters, who were obviously using the conference as a launching pad into the world of DIY marketing. Marching in with gusto, and with cookies. Now, I will be the first to admit that (being in marketing) my tolerance for campaigns that miss … Continue reading Oh, Snap!

Some of them may be there already. (Update: as of posting time there are at least 24 pages of photos – find them here) If … Continue reading Northern Voice
