Susannah’s been asked to be a member of the faculty at the Blogs ‘n’ Dogs workshop presented by the Banff New Media Institute Accelerator program, to be held Dec. 4-7 near Calgary, Canada.
Participants spend most of their time learning about blogging, and some of their time learning about dog sledding. Seriously! Reminds me of that Steve Wright joke: “A while ago, I went skiing in England. It was a rare package: two weeks in England, one night in Connecticut, two weeks in England.”
The program is filling up quickly, but there’s room for a few more bloggers interested in refining their craft—what about you? It’s not a business conference, which is nice—it’s more like a conference for doers than a conference for owners, if you know what I mean. Here’s their description:
Participants will learn about the philosophies behind the blogosphere. Additionally, they’ll develop and refine their blog finding, reading and writing skills. We’ll also cover social bookmarking, tracking topics, social networking, and emerging practices in audio and video blogging.
Travis will be going, too. Should be excellent fun.
