My Northern Voice Experience

February 25th, 2008 @ 3:39pm by Guest Author

In an effort to get a more “global” recap of the Northern Voice experience I have invited Jennie Roth of 37Roses to write up this guest post. Coming back home to Pittsburgh I almost feel like a little kid giving a really excited and nearly hyperventilating speech about what I did at summer camp. I’ve […]

Northern Voice: Coming to a Close

February 23rd, 2008 @ 4:40pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

There are still two blocks of sessions underway that I can now follow remotely from the comfort of my couch, while the sunshine beams through the windows breathing life into some leftover Valentine’s roses on the kitchen table.

February 23rd, 2008 @ 9:11am by Rebecca Bollwitt

As everyone slowly trickles in the auditorium for day two and the official ‘conference’ portion of Northern Voice, we prepare for another day of social media geekery. This morning starts with a keynote from Matt Mullenweg, otherwise known as the father of WordPress and much more. Once again I’ll be semi-live blogging throughout the day, […]
