Northern Voice Weblog Conference — Deadline Looms

One more week to get your speaker submissions in for Northern Voice. We had a blast last year, and judging from the submissions so far it promises to be another humdinger. You need not step forward to deliver a whole talk — you can offer to join a panel, lead a discussion, or propose a theme for Moose Camp.

Based on the experience last year, I don’t feel much urgency to get “education” or “academia” on the agenda as a stand-alone theme for its own sake (unless demand warrants). The discourse of the wider weblog community offers much to inform educators. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to get as many of the smart voices I read in my aggregator onto the program as possible — I do, very much.

The planning has cranked up a notch, and with it my own excitement for what’s to come. I fervently hope you’ll be in the mix. Have you heard that Vancouver is a nice city? And that stuff about rain in the winter… a vile pack of lies. Do I have to beg? OK, consider me abject. Consider me pleading. I’m on my knees…
