Dot Com Pho Toronto

Dot Com Pho moved to Toronto for the very first time and it turned out to be one of the best Dot Com Phos to date. We had a good turn out of 10 people making it out to the Vietnam Noodle Star. It was a good thing Sarah decided to make reservations because that place was packed!

Because this is the first Dot Com Pho and the first time we have ever met face to face, the conversation wasn’t anything like the Dot Com Pho back home. The topics were pure blogging and Internet related. We did get in a bit of politics and got to know each other a long the way. The group hopes to continue the Dot Com Pho meet ups after I’m gone.

Joining Sarah and me for Toronto’s first Dot Com Pho were Bart Dabek of About My Planet and BartDabek.com, ZK of Web Traffic ROI, Ahmed Dawn of A Dawn Journal, Francis Chung of Tech Viva, Chris Ye of Customize, Manuel Maniquis of Adobo Republic, Max of Money Bites, Blog Gears and OIO Publisher, and Antonio Leong. It was great to meet you guys. Hopefully, the next time I’m in Toronto, Dot Com Pho will be taking over entire restaurants.

    The Clicker is nearly identical (if not exactly identical) to training tools that they use for dogs and other performing animals. In this way, it serves a very useful purpose.

    Great video. I liked how the guy in the background sitting at the table was looking at John when he was demonstrating that clicker thing. Great vid.

    1. Stephen says:

      Yeah, he had more camera time than anyone else at the table. Well, except for John 😛

    John, thanks for arranging this meet up; everyone else, thanks for making this a successful event. I am putting together an article about our last two meet ups and hopefully I will able to publish it sometime next week. Thanks again.
