Nokia Adspeak in post below...

I've posted test posts on this blog in a variety of different ways. I have used blog software like Qumana and devices like a HP windows mobile handheld. But, never have the software or devices added verbiage like the Nokia lifeblog software did in the below post....arrrgh!

I just got my hands on a Nokia N95 phone which has an elite swiss army knife range of features. Perhaps I can configure the lifeblog software on the device to be more user friendly....

power outlets in Montreal's Pierre Trudeau airport

Its weird, and we may still be a small segment of the overall travelling population, but making it hard for laptop users to plug in is really not a good idea. Especially those who have blogs.

I am at gate A49 at Montreal's Pierre Trudeau airport. Paid the$8.95 for the daylong wifi service. There are plug ins nearby, but they are under elevated table, with no chairs - kind of like bar tables. I don't know why they don't make it easier.  I am now sitting in the comfy chairs by the gate, but my power is about to run out.


Northern Voice and Seinfeld....

I'm back in Vancouver this weekend. Just finished two days at a provincial conference on crime prevention an public safety.

Like many folks, I have been reflecting on my experiences at Northern Voice last weekend. I have been trying various new software and web sites that I learned about at the conference. I am seriously considering getting more into video blogging - specifically mobile video blogging through a Nokia N series phone.

But, the more I attend Northern Voice, the more I realize the magic is in who you break bread with. The first Northern Voice, I sat next to Rob Cottingham and Lee Lefever at a dinner organized, I think, by Nancy White. The third Northern Voice, I ate many meals with Robin Yap and Jeffrey Keefer.  These people have become good friends, and its always so great when I get to see them in person.

Last week, I had dinner with Robin, Jeffrey, and this wonderful new friend  and worldwide wiki expert- Stewart Mader. We're at Moxies on Robson, finish ordering, someone brings up Seinfeld, and then the fun really begins. Now, these three gentlemen have brain power and passion, and their knowledge of Seinfeld trivia was staggering to me. Now I am not a great afficianado of the show,  but watching the exchange of storylines, quotes, one liners was something I will not soon forget - entertaining and amazing. It went on for at least an hour, I would say.

Someone even shared that they get depressed when they can't find a seinfeld rerun on the hotel tv when they are travelling.
