Vancouver Blogapalooza for January 21

I upped by geek quotient this week by attending a blogging meetup and this is some of what I found:

David Drucker blogs about being a Canadian in Canada in Loud Murmurs. It’s far more interesting than it sounds when you realize that he used to be an American in America and chose to live here instead, doing his part to reverse the continental brain drain. Congratulations on getting your citizenship.

Carol Sill finds a link between a Kitsilano public school, Khartoum in the 1880s and the troubles in Sudan today.

Ruth Seeley ponders the meaning of the Great Gatsby, Shake Hands With the Devil and the World is Flat and concludes… well, I’ll let you find out for yourself. It’s a loooong post.

    Thanks for the shout-out, Jonathon. I just got my Landed Immigrant status, though. Citizenship will have to wait a little while.

    Ha – and to think I used to be accused of having an ‘abrupt’ writing style. I can be succinct too, Jonathon. Honest. The best writing training I ever had was years ago when I used to have to write one-sentence, non-generic and totally neutral synopses of films. Sometimes just to keep my hand in I write one-sentence synopses of short stories.

    And hey, one of these days I’ll learn some HTML and get that page break thang happening so you don’t notice how long the posts are. ;)
