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.
YULBlog on Montreal.tv
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).
One of the regular discussions
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.
Patrick posted a
post-event wrapup of the Yulblog 5th Anniversary Party, which was held on Saturday night at Zeke’s Gallery. Thanks to everyone who came, and special thanks to Patrick, Chris, Alex, Ed. and M-J for doing the heavy lifting to get the thing off the ground,
On Saturday in the Gazette
they ran a piece on weblogs and YULBlog by Sarah Musgrave. You can read the relevant excerpts with added links at Metroblogging Montreal. Compare and contrast with Musgrave’s very early article on blogging that was published in the Montreal Mirror in 2001’s Noisemakers feature.
