Faces of Social Media in Montreal

Shel IsraelOn Wednesday night, Marc Snyder used the occasion of Shel Israel‘s visit to Montreal as an opportunity for a bloggers dinner.

I made the trek to Montreal to see what is happening there. And I’ve got to say, one heck of a lot.

The fascinating conversation underlined for me that bilingual Montrealers have the best of all worlds. They reside in one of the great cities of North America where they can daily experience both the English and French cultural traditions. This provides a unique flavour and perspective to their conversations.

You may want to check out YULBlog, which aggregates a number of Montreal bloggers and Yulbiz, which brings together Montreal’s professional blogging community for periodic meetups.

  • It was a great night indeed, Joseph. (Nice to see that my picture wasn’t the worst of the mugshots you collected Wednesday night!)

  • Joe,
    You gave everyone else a bigger one than me. You make me feel so inadequate.

  • Hey Joe ! (Reminds me of something…)

    We had a great time and great conversation. You kind of disappeared at the end so I dindn’t wish you a safe return to Ottawa. Mitch was aso looking for you :o)

    See you soon !

  • Hi Claude,
    It was a great evening. You have a fantastic community with some very bright, I mean VERY bright people.
    Yes, I did disappear. The toll of three days early rising to travel and late evenings caught up with me. Knowing when to leave is an important part of being a good guest!

  • I was delighted to have met you joseph and I look forward to our next encounter….
