Tonight was the monthly meet up for Third Tuesday Vancouver. It’s call Third Tuesday because they meet on the third Tuesday of every month. Most of the time, it’s just informal networking among members but tonight there was a presentation by Rebecca Bollwitt from Miss604.com on building your personal brand.
What caught my interest wasn’t so much Rebecca’s presentation, which was very good. What stood out for me was the live blogging software used by Tris Hussey to live blog the presentation.
