Northern Voice, like winter, is coming. Earlier, though. Get your tickets!
And get ‘em fast! Discounted Early Bird tickets for Northern Voice, Canada’s first (and arguably, best) weblogging social media conference are still available until end of day — after that, you’re paying full price (though really, even at full price they’re a steal).

Buy your tickets today! Check us out at www.northernvoice.ca, on Facebook, Twitter, or on Google+.
