If you’re a blogger from Montreal, it would be a great idea to come to YULBlog tonight. Patrick and Eric Demay have done a great job developing a new (beautiful) YULBlog website that will give members much more direct control over both their personal profile and their blogs. The site is being launched tonight at First Wednesday at La Quincaillerie and you’ll (likely) be able to sign up for a profile and add your blog or blogs while having a beer or two with the YULBlog crew.
I forgot to mention it last week, but at this month’s YULBlog First Wednesday there was a crew from montreal.tv doing a piece on the monthly event. Here’s the piece. I think it might have been the first time I have been recorded speaking French for a TV or radio piece! (Note to self: don’t back away from the mike in future).
among the consultants/freelancers/small-business-owners I know through YULBlog in Montreal was about setting up a space that would enable normally solitary workers to have a space in which to work away from the home and gain the benefit of the cross-pollination of ideas and creativity that come from seeing people on a daily basis. It looks like it’s a common problem, and in New York, the people at Paragraph seem to have a solution – at least for writers.
