Urbanism Online: #capital


For those
of you from Ottawa, I’m going to be in town this Thursday evening talking
at an event put on by the National Capital Commission called Urbanism
. It’s all about how blogging, social media, and online discussions can
and are contributing to the betterment of cities.

The other
bloggers include:

– Marc-André Carignan, Montreal,

– Jillian Glover, Vancouver, This City Life

– Robert Smythe, Ottawa, UrbSite

The event is
now full, but email them or tweet me if you’d really like to come
and I’ll certainly ask about space availability. I’m sure it’s going to be a great discussion.

I have a bit of a soft spot for Ottawa. I used to spend a lot of time there when I was working on an office building at 150 Elgin Street. (Key tenants include The Canada Council for the Arts, KPMG, and Shopify.)

I haven’t been back since the building was completed, so I’m excited to see how it turned out.

Update: The event will also be streamed on Periscope, here.
