Now in its fifth year, Northern Voice 2009 came to the UBC campus as strong as ever. The two-day personal blogging and social media conference sold out in three days, which started the organizers thinking of ways to make it bigger for next year.
On the Northern Voice site, the event is described as “a two-day non-profit personal blogging and social media conference”. Although accurate, this definition doesn’t begin to capture the outcome of bringing some of the most enthusiastic, creative and passionate bloggers together under one roof.
For those who have yet to experience the power of The Moose, the event is probably unlike any conference you have ever attended. True to the do-it-yourself, community-oriented ethos of weblogging, Northern Voice fosters an atmosphere that allows participants to steal the show, with special emphasis on providing a worthwhile experience to as diverse a range of attendees as possible.
