I spent much of the weekend in Calgary at a course, so I missed out on a lot of cool events taking place in Edmonton. I mostly wanted to go to WordCamp Edmonton, and attended the Christmas tree lighting at Churchill Square. Instead I was in class learning about archetypes and storytelling. So if you weren’t around Edmonton much last week too, this post will help bring you up to speed!
Remember, you can always suggest content for the Edmonton Blog Watch using our handy submission form.
Now on with the show:
- Sarah Sinfield wrote an interesting and quick review of this past weekend’s WordCamp.
- Hilary Darrah previously shared her experience of having a seizure with the Edmonton Blogosphere, and last week she announced she’s been seizure-free for over 7 months.
- Kick Point’s Dana DiTomaso wrote about failure, and how it’s helped her in her professional life.
- OilersNation’s Jason Gregor provided an NHL labour negotiations update. Briefly: negotiations not going anywhere.
- Last week, the Journal published a story about a British researcher who was offered a $10 million grant to do his work at the U of A. Ultimately, he decided not to come. Predictably, Edmontonians are extremely worked about this. But Todd Babiak had some wise words on the subject last week.
- Finally, Dave Cournoyer wrote an interesting post the Wildrose Party’s inside baseball politics.
