Social Media Year in Review – May 2010 Victoria BC

Paul Holmes organized a second WordCamp May15th.  Attendance at both has been over 100 each time.

Don’t miss the third WordCamp Saturday January 22nd. Registration costs are modest, and the speaker line-up  includes options for beginners, advanced and technical users. I’ll be moderating a blogger panel with Rebecca Bollwitt (Miss 604), Mike Vardy (Eventualism) and Lorraine Murphy (Raincoaster) and speaking on “Promoting Through Blogging”.

Pecha Kucha Night volume 2 was held on May 27th. Speakers included Ben Ziegler and Karen Rivers.

Kudos to the Fairmont Empress and Inn at Laurel Point for innovative marketing. May 12th saw the inaugural #poutineoff on the lawns of the Empress Hotel. Judges, sourced via Twitter, were @cqwww @toots11 @flygirlWS @seedtocup @lacouvee @EATmagazine @TravelWithTaste @youcookca. Mayor Dean Fortin was the MC. Fairmont Empress Chef Ito’s “Tiger Poutine” was narrowly declared the winner.
