May’s Interesting Vancouver Sites
Thanks for all the suggestions about ways to encourage commenting. I said I’d reciprocate by calling attention to the Web sites of some of those who shared ideas. It was such a success that I think I’ll post interesting Web site monthly. So without further ado, here are May’s handful of Vancouver-y (Vancouver-ish?) links.
Allen Pike runs alteringtime.com. The site is a dog’s breakfast of interesting shared quotes, online games, quirky links, satirical news arti cles and a lively forum.
Jen is the brains and brawn and beauty behind worldwidewatercooler.com, a personal blog that expresses the humor and adventures of a typical 20-something life-long Vancouverite. She’s currently in Seoul.
Miss 604 (miss604.com) is a completely different typical 20-something life-long Vancouverite woman. I personally think we should have these two battle in a cage match to determine who will be Queen604!
Jonathon Narvey blogs at jnccwriteimage.blogspot.com and has several handfuls of opinions about Vancouver-related issues: road-building, big box stores, comic book movies and Vancouver’s Storyeum. He writes at Urban Vancouver as well.
Rob Cottingham’s epynomous personal blog is also a not-infrequently updated source of Web politics, issue summaries and tech pointers.
Vancouver Canucks Oped, a top tier hockey blog, still has lots to say, even in the (for us in Vancouver) off-season:
Look, we’ve all suffered the pain and disappointment of The Great 2006 Failure and maybe we just need a reminder that a new season awaits us in only, uh, 5 months. (“omg, kill me now!”) Ooops, sorry…
Ariane, a Burnaby resident, sells organic cotton designs via her City Girl Designs Web site and also a storefront in Vernon.
Finally, Scott posts at Overheard in Vancouver which is a really cool idea for a Web site that I’m going to post about separately.
