Bookcamp Vancouver 2009: Book Publishing Throwdown

BookCampVancouverXXY

Friday October 16th, 2009 was a good day for book publishing in Vancouver.

I’m still fairly exhausted from the whole thing.  I’ll be writing a piece on the event in the next week or so once my senses return to normal and the blood returns to my feet.

But I will take this opportunity to thank everyone who came and participated in the event.  The volunteers and fellow organizers did an amazing job of executing a near flawless day and one that we should all be proud of.

I’m not even talking about the lunch!  Big props to Out to Lunch Catering for making us look good.

And yes, the words ‘Next Year‘ have already been uttered.
