My dog Confiture — who I always refer to as “pooch” on social media — has been getting quite a bit of media coverage in Montreal of late. It all relates to the fact that since early 2016, we’ve been basically crowdsourcing walks for him, using a private Facebook group we created that now has […]
I’m glad to see that the “Ride the Lightning” talk series, organized by the lovely crew at AQ (with a wicked logo design by my ex-Tokyo gaming buddy Ryan Ruel), is still going strong. Focusing on sharing dev and design-related stories, you can follow their Facebook page and Doorkeeper page to make sure not to […]
After taking a bit of a holiday break, I’m glad to see that Luis and Adrian‘s PauseDraw is back in 2017 with its first edition set for February 12 — you’ll find all the details on the Facebook event page.
PauseDrawers keep on drawing, with the next event set for November 27 at Shibaura House, the space which seems to have turned into the event’s regular venue (pictured, a previous PauseDraw held there). You’ll find more details on the Facebook event page.
Even though I’m no longer in Tokyo running my PauseTalk events, it warms my heart to see that its offshoot, PauseDraw, is still going strong. Unlike PauseTalk where talking’s the thing, the sister series is all about getting a group of people together to draw, draw, and then draw some more. Originally started by Luis […]
PauseTalk Vol. 50 didn’t mark the end of anything, on the contrary, we kick off a new era — well, numerically speaking at least — with Vol. 51 this coming Monday (June 6) at Cafe Pause. As always, the cafe is reserved from 19:30, and the official session will kick off at 20:00. Come on […]
Let me start by thanking everyone who came to last week’s 50th edition of PauseTalk. For the most part it was run as usual — except for me taking more time at the start to talk about how it all started, and how it developed — but it had a great vibe, a great turnout, […]
Because of Facebook’s upcoming policy to archive old groups — and since it appears that PauseTalk doesn’t really fit what Facebook describes as a “group” — I’ve created a new “fan page” for PauseTalk. Please “like” this page if you’d like to continue receiving the monthly reminders I send out before each edition. Also, I’ll […]
It’s still a couple of weeks away, but since I’ve had a few people ask me, yes, following a 2-month hiatus, PauseTalk will be back next month (Vol. 47), happening on the first Monday of the month as usual (in this case, February 7). I’ll send the regular Facebook reminder a few days before it […]
As you get towards the end of the year, it’s usually a time to reassess the way you do some things, and one thing I’ve decided to do is to take my personal Facebook account and make it just that, personal. For the past year or so I’ve just been adding whoever sends me a […]
