The Vancouver Blogger Meetup will reconvene in June 2012 with a panel on gamification of social media. It will probably be rescheduled from our usual second Wednesday of the month as next month we have Northern Voice 2012, the blogging conference on November 15th and 16th (have you purchased your tickets yet? They tend to sell out weeks in advance!)
I also wanted to draw your attention to the recent one year anniversary of passing of Derek K. Miller (@penmachine). Derek passed away on May 3rd, 2011 after a long battle with stage 4 colorectal cancer. He was a member of the Vancouver Blogger Meetup (if I recall correctly, since the founding of the group!) and his blog exemplifies one of the best blogs I have ever read. Derek's writing was concise, powerful, insightful and he always shared, cross-linked and attributed correctly. He built community through and through for the decade he blogged. His Last Post made an incredible impact worldwide. Please read here. I encourage you to read his blog, whether you are a seasoned blogger or a newbie.
See you in June 2012!
Raul (on behalf of your friendly co-organizers Shane and Jonathon and myself!)
