Another WordCamp Toronto is behind us.

“That’s a wrap! WordCamp Toronto 2014 was a smashing success, bringing together over 450 WordPress enthusiasts from around the Toronto area and far beyond.”

I loved focusing on the media & communications end of things this year, rockin’ the @WCYYZ accounts on both Twitter and Facebook. Presentations are coming in from speakers and I’m feeling good about the video situation.

Looking forward to WordCamp Toronto 2015 already…!

Suffering is essential.

“No one is able to produce a great work of art without experience, nor achieve a worldly position immediately, nor be a great lover at the first attempt; and in the interval between initial failure and subsequent success, in the gap between who we wish one day to be and who we are at present, must come pain, anxiety, envy and humiliation.”

Financial Post on Jian Ghomeshi

“Who is going to risk being potentially sued for defamation by a party who has already assembled a team of lawyers and PR agents and showed a readiness to take on even the comparatively powerful CBC for $55-million

Given that they have already been painted by Ghomeshi’s version of events as being into BDSM kink — something they may not even be, or may not want known to friends and family — how quickly will any accusers come forward publicly now and risk being joined to this outsized action?”
