5 reasons why I want to go to Northern Voice

My plea for travel funds from Northern Voice at UBC:

Celine Dion

First Nations

John Candy


Canadian Flag

More seriously, I have no more developmental funds from UMW left, and I think that Northern Voice is where I need to be. The structure of the conference, the caliber of people, and the possibility of figuring out what is in the water up North that makes them there Canadians so damn innovative. That said, if you have folks who are more needy please select them first.

  1. you know, a good number of Americans travel with that same decal on their backpacks too, for some reason 😉

    oh, and it’s “Northern Voice” not “Northern Voices”, but you’d get my vote (you know, if I had one…)

    Thanks for the heads up, Darcy. I just edited my typos, this may very well kill my chances. But no one can claim false advertising if and when I get up there – let it be known that I am an obnoxious, abrasive New Yorker through and through! Additionally, I can’t type worth a damn.

    Open source competition and collaborative editing. As Charlotte might write, “Radiant!”

    But who told you Celine Dion? I was told John Candy was singing…
