CityView: Currents’ Vancouver linkfest

Published by at 10:43 am under Uncategorized

Taking a page out of Vancouver uber-blogger Miss604‘s playbook, here’s what’s going on around our gleaming city at the edge of the world:

Marketing Ruined My Life’s Jeremy Lim serves up a classic burger… commercial.

Media maven Michael Klassen on Barack Obama (well, on a link to Barrack, anyway).

Carol Browne tells us it’s the Year of the Rat (a year late, according to one commenter). This is actually a good thing, apparently.

Sean Orr takes pity – sort of – on guilty Vancouver cop. Who knew Morning Brew’s author was such a softie? He must have written this before actually quaffing his morning brew of broken glass and dry roast. Sean, you’re all heart.

John Bollwitt has located a new copyright widget for RSS feeds. All of us west coast geeks are grateful.

Covenant Zone’s peeps are proud to be Canadian. Free Ezra!

Wired Cola introduces Charlie the Cockatoo. Um, yeah.

And of course, Miss604 and a host of other Vancouver bloggers will be flying to Toronto without me because the CBC just forgot to call. I have to keep telling myself that.

Clearly, Vancouver’s blogging community is an eclectic and diverse bunch.

    think of it this way, now at least you don’t have to stress out about what to wear on camera and figure out what exactly “CBC-appropriate cleavage” would be.

    Hey! Thanks for the link to your site. Apparently, the CBC forgot to call me as well. Sad. We’ll just have to watch them win on the TV. Darn…and Lainey’s going to be there as well!

    Nothing wrong classic burger commercials!

    You learn all sorts of common sense marketing lessons from the strangest places.

    Hope you’re doing well, Jon! Hope to see you soon at one of the upcoming social media vents!
