Of Deadlines And House Guests...

Stemming the flood of psychological turmoil threatening my drama-lite regime, I have been surfing the web for respite...and I have found the following event surprisingly close (Vancouver, B.C.) to my home:

VIDFEST is for the creators and producers of digital content. It's a chance to meet with peers from all over the world, see their work, develop new partnerships, and engage your mind by listening and talking to people like you who explore and push the boundaries of creativity in digital media.

Heather Armstrong, of "Dooce" fame, will be one of the many panelists giving talks throughout the four-day event (June 15-18).
