The Twitter effect

I just finished experiencing the Challenge Your World event with Guy Kawasaki in Montreal entirely through Twitter.

What was this event?

Rendez-vous 09 – A featured event of Global Entrepreneurship Week and Challenge Your World

I wasn’t able to attend tonight’s event, but just by reading the live Tweeting (and vigouous ReTweeting), the Twitterverse was able gave me a real sense of the energy in a room filled with over 500 attendees.

All proceeds of the evening benefited CARE Canada and according to the latest Challenge Your World Tweet – $17,000 was raised.  That’s amazing!

Congrats to Martin Lessard (@martinlessard) and the Challenge Your World Team (#CYW & @challengeworld).  Your hard work has definitely paid off tonight!

Although I wasn’t there to witness and experience the magic of Guy Kawasaki myself, it was obvious that the Twitterverse was able to transfer his passion, positivity and his inspiring keynote 140 characters at a time.  Thanks to RT’s from @kimvallee, @jeromeparadis, @emergent007, @zelaurent, @bdescary, @evablue and many more.

Cheers to Guy Kawasaki, Challenge Your World and Twitter tonight!

On this Sunday… Mother’s Day

The Montreal Gazette Just a short post for the sake of posterity.

Today I had the honor of being featured in the Montreal Gazette’s Mommy Diaries by Susan SEMENAK.

The article features a few ladies I follow on Twitter:  Kim Vallée (At Home With Kim and On The Web With Kim), fellow South-Shore(er); Lianne Hogan (BabyBurrito) as well as Caroline Allard (Les chroniques d’une mère indigne).

I wanted to thank Kim Vallée again for recommending me for the article.  Un gros merci Kim!

Happy Mothers Day Mom!
