Around Town

Some highlights from the past week and upcoming events... - Last Monday, I went to Third Tuesday Toronto (disclosure: my company, CNW Group, is a sponsor) to hear Darren Barefoot speak. I won't waste too much time or space rewriting what others have written about his talk except to say that I liked his idea of teaching children to create and maintain a Wikipedia page. I also got a chance to catch up with a former coworker of mine, and I hope to see him again soon.

-Tomorrow night, Toronto's finest young PR-types will be meeting at The Abbot On The Hill, which is at 1276 Yonge Street. Join the Facebook Group, or just show up for what promises to be a very informal evening of getting drunk networking.

-And finally, on November 15 I'll be attending Talk Is Cheap, a social media unconference at Centennial College. My boss has sugggesed that I present something, and I'll definitely give the idea some thought. However, the registration list looks pretty full of some very knowledgeable people and I might be better off just going to learn and discuss. Either way, it looks like it'll be a good time.

See you around town!
