This looks like it’s gonna be good. If you live in Vancouver (or anywhere else around BC’s Lower Mainland) and have turned on your Internet at any point, you’ve probably come across Vancity Buzz, a go-to blog for headline news, fashion tips, entertainment highlights, sports and more. They’ve got more Twitter followers than the Vancouver Sun and the Georgia Straight, with a tech-savvy, engaged audience that advertisers love.
In an age where everyone and his dog has a blog, how did their site achieve greatness? Learn from Vancity Buzz Founder Karm as he tells his story at Tech on Tap — as you enjoy some of the best beers in the land at Postmark Brewing.It’s happening Wednesday, Nov, 26 starting at 6 pm.

Because I’ll be there. OK, seriously, this is going to be good, Vancouver tech bigwigs. The first-ever Tech on Tap event is happening Wednesday, Oct. 22 at Postmark Brewing, Vancouver’s newest Craft Brewery, just east of Gastown.
What makes this event so special? For starters, we’ve got Kemp Edmonds, a lead Solutions Consultant at Vancouver-based HootSuite (and if you are in this town and haven’t heard of Hootsuite… well, maybe you really shouldn’t come). This expert from Vancouver’s #1 social media toolset will give a brief presentation on Spooky, Scary Social Media Ghost Stories. After that, it’s a night of networking and enjoying some craft beer with fellow decision makers and smart folks from some of Vancouver’s most prominent tech firms.
Also, did I mention craft beer? Oh, I did? Well, fine then.

I like using Meetup. It’s simple and it works. When I want to find a group to play board games with me because all of my other friends are tired of getting their butts kicked on the tabletop, I go on Meetup, find a group near me, RSVP and it’s all good. If I’m not in the mood to write — but know that I have to get at least a few pages done to meet a deadline, I can join the Just Write Vancouver meetup in Yaletown and force myself to just get it done alongside fellow would-be-procrastinators.
