Canadian Undergraduate Technology Conference – HI!

Today I’m at U of T with Keri hosting CUTC (The Canadian Undergraduate Technology Conference). In a nutshell, CUTC is “passionate young students gathering to discuss and learn about the newest and coolest ways the world is changing”. Check out the speakers here (Reddit guy, Kiva founder etc.). We’re in for lots of red shirts and heaps of students. Beauty day out there though! If you’re in the audience reading this – HIIIIIIIIIIIIIII CUTC is Canada’s largest, longest-running student-organized technology conference. 2011 will be its 12th year. CUTC brings together hundreds of the country’s brightest students for two days in the heart of downtown Toronto, and gives them a chance to interact with technology in ways that school can’t. This includes incredible keynote speakers, intimate breakout sessions, and a wide variety of activities and competitions bringing together students and tech. CUTC 2011 is about sharing the stories behind changes in…

Some like it Hot…Docs!

No I’m not talking about my favourite Marilyn Monroe movie, I’m talking about the biggest documentary festival in North America! Hot Docs! The Toronto fest is running until May 8th so I’ve been trying to see as many docs as I can! So far? So awesome! Here are my top 3 must see documentaries from the fest: Dragonslayer Fast. Fun. Beautiful. Raw. Rad. It’s no wonder that it’s the SXSW 2011 Documentary winner. The film organically captures moments of punk skateboarder Josh “Screech” Sandoval’s life.  A mix of stunning cinematography and point of view hand-held footage. Not to mention the perfectly fitting soundtrack. You’ve Been Trumped – Thursday May 5th 1pm and Sunday May 8th 12:30pm @ The Cumberland Exposing the Donald for the ruthless monster that he is! Donald Trump taking over a small Scottish town + A journalist = trouble. I don’t want to give too much away,…

i’d like to thank you for watching my show

Just kidding, I don’t have a show yet! Yesterday I woke up and rode the subway just after rush hour, it was still packed. I was heading to BNotions Internet & Strategy to be filmed for an upcoming panel I’m on. They told me originally 3-5 hours and I was like ‘WHAT DO WE NEED THAT LONG FOR?’. I’m pretty speedy & no fuss to work with, especially when shooting. We were done in about an hour which included Broll too. WIN! Panel is called Fashion Connect TO, it’s at the Gladstone April 7th and it’s free. There are 89 people already attending. Get a ticket here! Last night I stopped by Abode w/ Keri & saw these lovely peeps. Awwww. Tonight during the six o’clock news there’s a special on being cool on the internet and prolific amazing tweets,  I’m part of it.  Not sure if it is national,…

hey there school girl

Leather jacket, sweet ride. I rarely ever take TTC. I noticed that today. I pretty much walk everywhere. I stay in my neighbourhood heaps. I need to tune up my bike. Anyone have a hook up? I have a varity of talents for barter. Seeing a pack of cops will forever remind me of the G20. Google “casie stewart riot girl“. I hope I never have to be in a situation like that again. Running through the streets soaking wet, people were being detained and arrested, cops everywhere in riot gear, riots. No,  thank you. Last time I was here I was in American Pie Beta House. I like this campus. It’s really pretty and old. I walked home after. It was pretty warm out. You are beautiful Jessica. sunshine | motorola milestone | me to we beaded heart | capezio cowboy boots | steve madded dress (raymi) | nella…

i’m not down w/ these regulations

Woke up and went to my computer like usual. Check twitter, email and guess who showed up… this guy: Luckily for us, the CRTC has been asked to reconsider billing rules. I really hope that they big ISP (internet service providers) don’t go through with UBB (user based billing). Just think about all the creative people and entrepreneurs that are running some of the coolest businesses on a shoestring budget and rely on the internet? Bye-bye. Megan has the same dreams as me and all the other nerds, unlimited internet!! Considering how much time I spend on the interwebs, I’d be BROKE and lookin’ at this all the time instead of sharing sunshine & awesomism with you. For those of you waiting to find out WHO won the Freestyle Friday contest. I’ll post this afternoon. There were SO MANY great entries. Thank you, you guys are AWESOME. In other news,…

i’m on tv today. does anyone even watch rogers daytime?

Today I’m on Rogers Daytime (again, HA!) for the Love a Heart Auction for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Show is on at 10am & 3pm. The auction is tonight and it’s gonna be hilariously fun/awesome. The whole group of 20 that are being auctioned off are a hoot; they’re are good looking with a sense of humor. What more can you ask for? Not much. The peeps being featured on ‘daytime’ today are Brock McLaughin and I along with Ally & Shannon who are running the auction/event. Babe #1 Babe #2 I’m stoked to have been chosen, mostly because I’ve wanted to be in an auction since Saved By the Bell/90210. I’m wearing a gorgeous dress made by Kingi at Peach Berserk JUST for this event.  Ah, celebrity…..I kid I kid. Did you know that the Peach Pit (aka Peach Berserk) makes custom dresses AND wicked custom prints. You can print…
