Last night was my first time with the Vancouver Blogger Meetup. Fun times! Cool geeks, good food, and I even got my first close-up look at an iPad! It’s a pretty sweet machine, with some awesome-looking software, though I won’t be getting the first version. And I’m still not convinced the onscreen keyboard will be too comfortable, though I’m told the iPad would be mostly used for consuming content, not creating it. Fair enough, I guess… and if a lot of typing is needed, external keyboards are available.
Anyway. Bloggers. This is something I’ve been missing, though it’s only now that I consciously realise it: a community. I’ve been blogging on my own, and having fun with it, but connecting with other bloggers is sure to inspire and energise me.
Plus, I also registered for Northern Voice. Six years and I never heard of it until last night? Well, there you go. Better late than never. Mental note: buy an portable charger for my iPhone, cos the battery will never last the whole day.
